Fans have been fascinated by this strange yet very familiar phrase "prepare to die". Fans are reportedly working hard trying to decipher this strange phrase and find out what it really means.
However, the teaser's tagline is not the only nod to From Software's Dark Souls legacy. The animated gothic style also shares some similarities with another action role-playing game Bloodborne, which also developed by From Software.
The action RPG Bloodborne was a huge hit for FromSoftware, so it really makes sense for the developer to revisit that universe. And in the mysterious Youtube teaser, the crowd see some very Bloodborne-y imagery, including men turning into beasts and more.
However, there's one big twist here, Sony currently owns the Bloodborne IP. But that does not stop Bandai Namco from developing something new, it can do creative perhaps teamed up with From Software to develop something new. The two companies have already done this with the Dark Souls games series.
For now, it still unclear what's Bandai Namco working with. Bandai Namco and From Software has already released the final DLC expansion for the action RPG "Dark Souls 3." It's now set to close the book on the Dark Souls game series. The fans would learn more about the mysterious trailer this coming April 20, Bandai Namco's target reveals day for its next project.
