Bandai Namco and From Software have released yet another Dark Souls III trailer. This time around it’s the game’s opening cinematic. And it’s delicious.
The intro is wonderful, dark, full of a sense of atrophy and dread and an ineffable weariness—everything, in other words, that we’d expect from a Souls game.
It’s also reminiscent of the original Dark Souls opening cinematic, which featured a similar set of introductions to some of the story’s central figures and the same narrator.
