The lights are on
According to a source speaking to EGM, Namco Bandai and developer FromSoftware plan to release "some form of expanded content" for Dark Souls in the first quarter of this year. The magazine says the content is currently nearing the end of development.
As for a possible hint of the content, EGM notes that FromSoftware recently filed a trademark for "Yami no Mori” in Japan, which translates to “Forest of Darkness” or “Dark Forest."
When asked about the report, a Namco Bandai representative told Game Informer the company doesn't comment on rumor or speculation.
Any news of downloadable content for Dark Souls comes as a surprise given that the game's creator, Hidetaka Miyazaki, recently said in an interview with us, "I wanted to create a complete package of the game without adding any DLC. That is the reason why I am not planning any DLC for Dark Souls."
One game I wouldn't actually mind DLC for.
Hype. More hyped for this than any game coming this year. Awesome news. Please don't [update] this article GI!
That's the best news all day!
I can't imagine how it would work having played Dark Souls, but I welcome the challenge!
Just add the ability to summon who I want, and Dark will be as great as Demon's for me.
fav game of 2011 so dlc is welcome
You'll do anything just to kill me some more won't you FromSoftware!
2012 is going to have loads of great DLCs by the looks of things.
Fair enough :) I don't actually own Dark Souls but I'm glad for those that do and enjoy it will get more, hopefully awesome, content.
I really want this game to come out on PC. After hearing my friend talk about it, it sounds like the right game for me.
I would willingly pay for DLC from this developer. EA and Activision can go to hell.
