Gamescom 2011: Dark Souls is ready to kick your ass all over again

Remember Demon’s Souls, the perennial 2009 Game of the Year contender that mopped the floor with players and had them crawling back for seconds? The spiritual successor to that game, Dark Souls, is coming very soon, and a new trailer out of Gamescom shows that it’s ready to draw players back in with the backbreaking, though ultimately rewarding, gameplay that gamers have come to love.

From Software’s new trailer shows off some pretty wicked-looking enemies, and everyone should probably be quivering at the sight of them. Do I have to remind you how hard the first game was again? Check the trailer below:

The game releases in the first week of October, so get ready.
