The lights are on
A Dark Souls sequel hasn't been officially announced yet, but that doesn't stop us from speculating what it could be called.
Last November, publisher Namco Bandai announced Dark Souls shipped 1.5 million copies globally. Those impressive sales numbers combined with a nearly 90 Metacritic average means we'll likely see a sequel sooner rather than later. The thing is, it might not even be called Dark Souls II.
Developer From Software created both Demon's Souls and Dark Souls. Sony owns the Demon's Souls franchise, so when From Software wanted to go multiplatform with a sequel, they had to start over with a new universe in Dark Souls. However, Dark Souls' story doesn't exactly end with room for a direct sequel.
The team has a number of options to go with their third game in the Souls series. Do they go with Dark Souls II or a completely new game again? Our fantastic design team here at Game Informer put together some options using Dark Souls art that you can see below.
Also, in the gallery afterwards, we left readers some of our covers without titles. Think you have a better name? Create your own cover and add it in the comments. We'll take the best fan-made covers and add them to our story on a second page.
I think the Dark Souls 2 and Devil's Souls have the best artwork. Nice job.
'Devil's Souls' sounds legit, but maybe that's just me.
Lol'd at Tekken X Dark Souls. WANT!
It would be amazing to see another installment to the "Souls" Series. Next to the "Tekken" title, one could use "Soul Calibur Souls". I would love to see Gwyn Lord of Cinder fight Nightmare to the death.
Some neat names there. Chuck a few in, may have been sid already.... fallen souls, con souls, damned souls, stolen souls, cama souls, banished souls, or the darkest most evil game ever.... ass .... lol
Dark Souls Even Darker Edition
It would have to be "tortured souls" dont you think? Considering the amount of time we spend getting killed learning the layout. Or maybe "slain souls"
If you're sticking with the 'D' as the first letter of the first word, I like Dead Souls and Dragon's Souls. Demonic Souls or Doomed Souls could also work.
I saw Ravaged Souls and Lost Souls and those are good too.
Dark Soul Man
I think Dead Souls is a little too much of a rip off of the title of Gogol's book... But, then again, it would be a REALLY good title.
Fried Green Souls.
Springtime Meadow Drenched in Sunlight and the Sound of Chirping Birds Souls.
FU*K that GI We want Demons Souls 2! Remember the arch stone that its broken in Demons souls? They should totally start from there for part 2!
(btw such a blasphemy of u to put those artboxes on 360 font....)
Listen here ladies and gentlemen of the jury. This series has taken us all down some dangerously dark paths just to drop us off a cliff. No matter what its called we the people can't wait to blindly travel these paths again (in hopes of getting our a**es kicked.) The game has always been dark and shows the power of evil characters. Why not show the corruption and devastating power of holier creatures. Lets call the damn thing "Divine Souls" and take the story to new heights.
We got some creative people out there... love it! An endless number of cool names culd be used, e.g. Soul Stealer, Souls of Death, DeathDealer, DeathStalker, Master of the UnDead, Unmerciful Prodigy, Fiend of Death, Undead SoulSlayer, etc. Whatever the case, the developers are going to have to work hard to build a game better than Dark Souls.
The next title will probably be Tortured Souls. Goes good with the dark atmosphere of the game. Dead Souls or Undead Souls is a possability too. But they should just make the next title Raping Souls: prepare to be begging for death XD
