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."
I actually felt lost when I heard that there wouldn't be DLC for Dark Souls...Now I feel hope again!
that would be awesome
Though I was glad when they said "no DLC plans" for Dark Souls, I wouldn't mind more content if they offered. Good policy: make a COMPLETE game, don't plan on DLC, but if the developers come up with something cool, go ahead and release it.
Cool, I didn't mind them annoucing they weren't going to make DLC for the game, but I'd so buy some DLC for this game.
That would be great. Any additional dark souls content is welcome in my book!
Whatever happened to expansion packs? I preferred those to DLC... I would gladly pay $30 for an expansion than $10 for each bit of 1-2 hour gameplay I get.
Ummmm.... please and thank you?
There's already a Dark Forest... maybe this one is Darker?
I am all for complete packaged game. But if a game that felt complete can be expanded more then a DLC is worth it. If it feels like something that should have been there to begin with then its a tacky move after saying no dlc.
It translates directly to Forest of Darkness, actually. Not Dark Forest.
Love the game but would be better if it were on my PC so it could be more convenient =D.
That quote is exactly what I was thinking of when I saw this article title. But I guess that's the publisher for you, same as when Mikami wanted to keep RE4 a GC exclusive, while Capcom as a whole had other plans.
Thrilled to hear this "rumor"! Hope it turns out to be true!
I'm just ready for another '(blank) Souls' game. DLC would be cool, but it seems out of character for the series somehow.
Had I known, I would not have sold my copy.
Stop saying you wont comment on rumor do it anyway and commit
Are there any updates on the PC version, like has Namco responded or anything with regards to the ever-growing petition. Surely that must have caught their attention.
