Behind the scenes with From Software, makers of “Dark Souls”

Here’s a new video with the people at From Software, the Japanese developers of the upcoming Dark Souls and Armored Core V.

Dark Souls is being billed as a spiritual successor to Demon’s Souls, a favorite of many PlayStation 3 owners and RPG fans who seemingly can’t stop referring to its difficulty. Namco Bandai is banking on that reputation as a selling point, even making preparetodie.com the URL for the game’s website.

Dark Souls’ release date is scheduled for Oct. 4 for PlayStation 3 and XBox 360.
