This just in : Dark Souls II is getting a much deserved remake and will step into the next generational consoles. Not only that but this version of the game called Dark Souls II – Scholar of the First Sin will contain all three DLCs, plus gameplay enchancements , new AI, new NPCs and bosses.
Those who already own Dark Souls 2 will be able to download a patch to receive all but a few of the enhanced version’s features namely: Graphical upgrade and the added multiplayer people per session.
The release is dated for 2015 April 3 for EU and 2015 April 7 for the US.
While I understand that upgrading Dark Souls II was the easiest choice. I feel that a much needed remake, or upgrade would have been a better idea for the first game. As there is actually more cut content in that entry of the series. Hopefully one day such a move will be made by BandaiNamco.
