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."
