The latest trailer for Dark Souls II doesn't show any gameplay. Instead, it shows live action teaser footage of armor forging.

The description alongside the video on Namco Bandai's official YouTube page reads, "Dark Souls' universe is taking a surprising new form... Are you ready to meet...him?" It's very vague and very mysterious.

Dark Souls II is coming PlayStation 3, PC, and Xbox 360 early next year. For more on the game, check out our E3 impressions, as well as our interview with Dark Souls II's new director, Yui Tanimura.
