Dark Souls 3 has become the fastest selling and most successful day one release for Bandai Namco Entertainment America. No further details or sales figures have been given.
The game has also been critically acclaimed from sources such as IGN, Destructoid, and Game Informer in the video above.
Like previous titles, Dark Souls 3 was developed by FROMSOFTWARE and directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki. In this game, you must find the five Lords of Cinder and bring them back to the Firelink Shrine. However, the world of Lothric, filled with difficult enemies, environments and bosses stand in your way.
It seems like this game might be the last in the series. Hidetaka Miyazaki told GameSpot, “I don’t think it’d be the right choice to continue indefinitely creating Souls and Bloodborne games. I’m considering Dark Souls 3 to be the big closure on the series. That’s not just limited to me, but From Software and myself together want to aggressively make new things in the future.”
FROMSOFTWARE have also developed Bloodborne and the Armored Core series.
For those who have passed the game’s trials already, the first DLC for Dark Souls III is releasing sometime in Fall/Autumn this year.
