Dark Souls II just got a world premiere trailer at the 2012 Video Game Awards. It's coming for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. See for yourself. Looks... tough, and unforgiving. As usual.
UPDATE: The game will star a new hero in a new world and will have a new director, as the series' creator, Hidetaka Miyazaki, takes on a supervisor role.
Skip ahead to 2:26 to see the trailer:
