AU New Releases: Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin Is Out This Week

If you’re enjoying Form Software’s recently-released gothic role-playing game Bloodborne, you might want to check out the developer’s previous game, which gets a re-release this week in the form of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin.

As the name suggests, Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin includes Dark Souls II, as well as all of Dark Souls II’s previously released downloadable content: The Crown of the Sunken King, Crown of the Old Iron King, and Crown of the Ivory King downloadable content packs. New content exclusive to Scholar of the First Sin will also be included which features a new boss, NPC, events, items, and updates to the game’s lore.

Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin will launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on April 2. The PS4 version of the game is confirmed to output in native 1080p resolution at 60 frames-per-second. The PC version will be released digitally, with a rather convoluted pricing structure. For more details on the game, check out our interview with Bandai-Namco global producer, Atsuo Yoshimura.

If you prefer action your role-playing games to be a less painful and punishing, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D will be released exclusively for the New Nintendo 3DS this week. The game is a re-release of 2012’s Xenoblade Chronicles which was originally launched on the Wii. Xenoblade Chronicles 3D was well-received in GameSpot’s review, scoring an eight out of ten for its deep combat system, large world, and quality voice overs.
