Dark Souls 3 reveals are surfacing, particularly those of screenshots and gameplay details from a gaming event in Japan. The From Software franchise has been very successful with making big sales from the previous versions. Even when the unit for the PC came out with several issues, fans became loyal to the game and are anticipating for action to come from the developer.

It was in E3 2015 that Dark Souls 3 was officially announced, sparking more interest among gamers. Reportedly, new details on the title have been shown, albeit being in Japanese. First off, the plotting of enemies and various traps in the game would be challenging for players to figure out, making it all the more exciting in hoping that they would not end up seeing the dreaded "You Died" message on the screen.

Apart from this improvement for Dark Souls 3, a number of screenshots were also shared. These range from art concepts to the possible locations and bosses one would encounter throughout the game. When it comes to the gameplay, one would get to try out multiple arrows and swords, which are accompanied by certain tactics to deal effective damage against the defense of the enemies.

Interestingly, a gigantic boss in the form of a "Dancer" was depicted wearing slim armor with a fiery sword as its weapon. There would also be a monster that devours corpses.

It is clear from these reveals that From Software is seeking to build momentum with the series as it has landed millions for sales. For one thing, Dark Souls managed to sell 5 million units worldwide. The vanilla version had 2.4 copies, while the rebundle package with the downloadable content turned over 2.6 units.

On the other hand, Dark Souls 2 sold up to 1.9 million already. The newer package, Scholar of the First Sin, turned up over 500,000, leading to an overall 2.4 million copies. With the new reveals for Dark Souls 3, it is not a far cry for the upcoming game to beat the achievements of the two earlier versions.
