Cumshots everywhere. Woohoo... feels good. Amazing announcement that I didn't see coming.

In the beginning when the trailer said, "Undead" I assumed it was a Souls game then I thought perhaps it's a Dragon Age game, and then DS2 logo appeared and enthralled me.

Some familiar looking locales in that trailer. Depths and Painted World bridge mainly.

Also prequel seems logical. Lots of Dragons flying around.
 
Damn really? This game needs to be next gen. I rather wait an extra year or so to get a new next gen souls game rather than have this now and then wait LONGER for the next gen one.
 
Hopelessness, Despair, and Impending Doom Arrives With Dark Souls II

SAN JOSE, Calif. – December 7, 2012 – Leading video game publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. today proudly announces that the critically acclaimed Dark Souls™ saga marches forward with Dark Souls™ II, currently in development at FromSoftware in Tokyo, Japan. Dark Souls II will continue a legacy of goading its passionate fan base with unrelenting challenge and suffering that are considered a hallmark of the series; while presenting new devilishly devised obstacles for players to overcome. Dark Souls II will be available for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PCs.

Built upon the foundation established by Souls series creator and Dark Souls II Supervisor, Hidetaka Miyazaki with development helmed by FromSoftware Director Tomohiro Shibuya, Dark Souls II will feature a new hero, a new storyline, and an unfamiliar world for players to survive in while delivering its signature brand of unrelenting punishment that players hunger for. Epic battles with gruesome enemies and blood-thirsty bosses await adventurers as they traverse through a devastated world filled with death and despair; only those who are strong willed or cunning can survive this journey to achieve great glory. Players seeking to share their experience will discover a revamped server-based multiplayer mode that will put a distinct Dark Souls II twist on the concept of playing with others.

“Dark Souls II retains the core essence of Dark Souls while evolving to present new twists and challenges that are sure to please longtime fans and attract new comers to the series,” says Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing at NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. “FromSoftware is going to take a very dark path with Dark Souls II; players will need to look deep within themselves to see if they have the intestinal fortitude to embark on this journey.”

“This new chapter in the Dark Souls saga presents opportunities for us to drive innovation in gameplay design, develop an entirely new story, and expand the scope of the world in which the player interacts with the game. We have taken these necessary steps with Dark Souls II in order to evolve the overall experience of the Dark Souls series,” says Tomohiro Shibuya, FromSoftware Director on Dark Souls II. “The entire development team is striving to make Dark Souls II an experience that is fresh while not forsaking its roots in presenting players with challenging gameplay. Our goal is to surprise and delight our fans with new experiences and plot twists while enticing new players to join our dark journey.”

More details surrounding Dark Souls II will become available in the months leading to its release. Begin your Dark Souls II journey at www.DarkSoulsII.com or join the Dark Souls II conversation on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/DARKSOULS or follow us on Twitter at www.Twitter.com/Filthierich

I'm tempted by the PC version because of mods but hackers on PC and the online community is better on PS3 makes me wanna buy the PS3 version instead.
 
I wouldn't worry too much about the CG trailer not "feeling" or sounding like Souls. I don't think FROM made it. The picture on the official website looks like pure Dark Souls with the fallen knight. He looks like he's wearing some form of the Giant set, at least the helm.
 
from FAMITSU.com

Current gen confirmed! PS3, XBOX360 and PS3. It says the game is being developed by FROM SOFTWARE AND BANDAI NAMCO. FAMITSU also confirmed the game has a new world setting....

New World? Hype on again. Woo!

Seriously the lore in Dark mentions all these different lands, but a shame to not see some of them.

* The site? much more what I expected vibe wise.
 
Worth noting that the website links to Microsoft's LIVE page when you click "PC" so GFWL is practically confirmed. To be fair I didn't have any problems with it on PTDE.
 
So guys let's discuss the trailer piece by piece:

-The main guy parries and ripostes the masked dude

- Dragon looks like a young kalameet

- the main dude drops in exhaustion/defeat towards a volcano area (perhaps the point in which the witches of izalith lose control of the first flame?)

- main dude has fur armor like Gwyn (maybe the 1st born son? MAYBE HE WAS KICKED OUT FOR FALLING IN LOVE WITH AN OUTSIDER?)

Miyazaki gone? Say it ain't so.
