Two Namco Bandai release announcements

The first came out a few days ago, but Dark Souls: Prepare to Die edition will be arriving for the PC.  It's good to see this game getting a broader audience than its spiritual predecessor, Demon's Souls, which was PlayStation 3 exclusive.  This version will be adding an area to the game 'Artorias of the Abyss'.  The release date is set for August 24th and will include a retooled PVP mode as well.

Another title announced was Tekken Tag Tournament 2 being made available September 2012.  I really am a huge fan of the Tekken series, and with more than 50 characters to choose from and several different modes, this should offer plenty to do for fight fans.  Are you excited for either of these titles?

Here's a set of quotes about Tekken Tag Tournament 2:

TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT is one of the most beloved entries in the TEKKEN series – not just among fans but also for myself and the entire development team, so crafting the sequel has been a labour of love for everyone here,” said Katsuhiro Harada, TEKKEN Project Director at NAMCO BANDAI GAMES Inc. “To truly make this game stand up to the high benchmark set by the original, we have injected some exciting features and modes that will revolutionize the online fighting game community and allow new players to enjoy and master the game – so there will be something for everyone.”

The original TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT created the entire tag-based fighting genre when it released in arcades in 1999, and the highly-anticipated sequel will bring unique features to the fighting game community with innovative online functionality that will be revealed in greater detail during E3 in June.

“There is so much packed into TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 that we can’t wait to reveal to fans of both fighting games and fans of all games,” said Carlson Choi, vice president of marketing, NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. The latest entry into the iconic series will have the level of depth expected of the highest-selling fighting game franchise of all time, but also the accessibility for new fans and gaming noobs alike.”
