Compatible with previous?

I have Dark Souls. But I prefer to have my content on a disc than on a DLC (which I would have to download again if I got a new PS3, if PS4 comes out, whatever...). So:

If I buy this and play it on my PS3, will my previous US save file carry over to this one? Would I have to start a new character?
