Prepare to ogle Japanese streams of Dark Souls 3 this March, because we in the west – Europe, North America and Australia to be specific – won't be getting the game until April. Publisher Bandai Namco announced the news at Tokyo Games Show this week, but they didn't give a specific date.
To make matters a little more confusing, the Japanese March 24 release date doesn't apply to PC in that region. That will be announced "at a later date", according to the Dark Souls 3 website. Whether that applies to the Western PC release as well hasn't been announced, but given the game's previous delays on our beloved platform, I wouldn't be surprised.
Still, once out it's unlikely to disappoint – so long as you're happy with a fairly stock standard Souls experience. "From what I saw of Dark Souls 3, it’s more of the same in style and spirit and structure," Wes wrote in his E3 preview.
