Dark Souls III will be a bigger hit if Dark Souls II keeps the difficulty

Dark Souls II will be a huge hit. A mega hit. This will be the game that makes the Souls series mainstream (for better or for worse). The developers surely know this and Dark Souls II is destined to sell like hot cakes. However, if the developers were to decrease the difficulty they will destroy the hardcore appeal to the series. Hardcore gamers carry with them majority of the hype. I truly feel that if they release an easier Souls game with Dark Souls II, the series will hit its climax in terms of sales, and only continue to drop from there. However, if they were to maintain the difficulty or even increase it a tad, they will have a very long lasting profitable franchise.

I agree 100%, keep the difficulty or turn it up a notch, we're all happy campers.

Yeah DS2 will be a blockbuster guaranteed, but it will also determine the future of the series. If its casual in any way whatsoever, I hope people don't buy the game.

Am I the only one who find Dark Souls not that difficult?

No need, they already said they weren't going to decrease the difficulty.

It isn't very difficult once you understand how it works. If you resorted to gather information from outside sources, such as wikis or forums, the game becomes very managable.

Getting to that point, however, is where the difficulty is.

They've said it plenty of times in all the DkSII press so far that it will retain the difficulty and darkness of the previous games.
