Namco Bandai has announced that they will be publishing Dark Souls, the spiritual successor to Demon's Souls, in North America and Europe. The deal will also see them publish Armored Core V in the same territories.

Dark Souls was officially unveiled yesterday, as it was previously known as Project Dark. It will be another Action RPG, but will apparently be a much more difficult prospect for gamers.

Speaking to MCV about the news, Lee Kirton from Namco Bandai UK said "We want to make this [Dark Souls] the leading title in its genre this year."

As well as the publishing annoucement, Namco Bandai confirmed that Dark Souls would also see a release this calendar year. It was previously unknown when we would expect to see this title.
