Dark Souls 2 Announced at VGAs

I was thinking;

"Awesome! Another Dark Souls expansion! .... Wait, that sounds too good to be true, maybe the Dragon's Dogma expansion...."

And then Dark Souls 2 appeared! I think I might have died for a second there.

Worth noting: No publisher, platform or developer info. We can assume it'll be From, but it could be next gen and Atlus/Namco/someone else.

The world itself looks similar to ancient Lordran, as seen in the DkS intro video.

Dark souls 2? Dunno about that title, implies this is going to be a direct sequel unless they are turning it into an entirely new series separate from Demon souls.

Trailer wasn't very dark and gritty, looked too much like Skyrim. D:

I had the same reaction... Alba's comments made it sounds like it would be Dark Souls. The video started and I was like "Skyrim...? Wait, that doesn't have brutal difficulty... Dragon's Dogma...?" I thought it might be DS based on the guy's helmet looking a little like the stone knight helm. Then that bridge in the mist...

When the narrator said "you are an Undead" I immediately though of Dark Souls but I never expected a sequel.

There were a few things come to think of it, that gave it away as being a new Souls game:

1) The way the blade sounded when taking it out of the ground.

2) The bonfire like kneeling of the character

3) And the dragon looked very much like a Souls dragon (jewel/eye on head?) at the end of the trailer.
