Check out the official world premiere trailer of Dark Souls II originally shown live at Spike TV's 2012 Video Game Awards ceremony.

The most infamously difficult game of our era, Dark Souls, is back for an even more challenging sequel that promises to enduce that special kind of video game rage that's responsible for many a broken controller.

"Sequel to one of the most challenging and rewarding games ever released — Dark Souls II will deliver its signature brand of unrelenting punishment, devastation and emotional highs for the iron-willed."

The world premiere announcement trailer for Dark Souls II recently aired at Spike TV's 2012 VGA 10 awards show, displaying in-game footage of the upcoming sequel from Namco Bandai Games.

The trailer itself offers an inside look at what gamers can expect from the sequel, and it appears that the second chapter continues the franchise's distinct bizarre and tortured medieval style, introducing new mysterious characters with that same stylish ominous flair.

Dark Souls II is being developed for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. No release dates have been officially announced, and for more information please visit the game's official website.
