Dark Souls 3 has had its release date in the west narrowed down, with Bandai Namco confirming at this year's Tokyo Game Show that it'll be coming out in Europe and North America in April next year.
That'll be soon after the Japanese release date, which was confirmed during Sony's conference in Tokyo to be March 24th 2016. Dark Souls 3 sees Hidetaki Miyazaki return to the helm of the series, and sees several new systems introduced - the newest of which we'll have a look into in a preview that's hitting the site shortly.
