This news may have some fans of the series worried that the franchise might be losing its hardcore edge but based on the screenshots and trailers, the game still looks as dark and difficult as ever. You can read the description of Dark Souls 2 on its ESRB page which certainly suggests the game will be as dark as ever. WARNING! There are minor spoilers concerning a certain boss.
