Bandai Namco announced at Tokyo Game Show today a release date for Japan and a release month for North America and Europe. The West will have to wait until April 2016 to receive the game while Japan will receive it on March 24. The game is being developed on PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4.
In addition, Bandai Namco revealed the following details about Dark Souls 3…
Dark Souls III pushes a deeper sense of role-playing than previous iterations of the series with key additions that provide players with a set of tools and in-game options to customize their gameplay experience. Skills, a new addition to the Dark Souls combat mechanics, adds attack modifiers to each weapon type, allowing players an increased tactical advantage in combat. Increase an axe’s attack power with War Cry or break an enemy’s guard with a quick upward swing from Ready Stance.
The choice of if and when players use these added abilities is up to them. Players will also be able to equip their character with a wide variety of armor sets, medieval weaponry, as well as come across powerful sorceries and miracles as they develop their own personal style of play.
