Spiritual sequel to the spectacular Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls is officially a go for October in North America and Europe, Namco Bandai confirmed today. A specific date hasn’t been set, but rest assured, you will be delving deep into the dangerous and terrifying dungeons of the Northern Realms in time for Halloween.

Better still, if you pre-order the PS3 and Xbox 360 action-RPG before supply runs dry, your standard edition copy of the game will come in a Collector’s Edition set at no extra charge. The standard $60 price will net you a limited edition hardback art book, a mini-strategy guidebook, a bonus disc with behind-the-scenes videos, a digital download of the game’s soundtrack and a custom-designed metal case to store everything in.

You’d be crazy to not take advantage of such a great offer. Given the extreme difficulty curve, that strategy booklet should come in particularly handy!
