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, its more of the same in style and spirit and structure," Wes wrote in his E3 preview.
