Following the launch of Dark Souls 3 last Tuesday, Bandai Namco Entertainment America announced today that it broke records “for the most successful day-one launch and fastest selling title” in their history.

In the new Kingdom Fall trailer today, Bandai Namco gives us a look at more gameplay, while also featuring a few quotes of critical praise, including the fact that it won Most Anticipated 2016 game in the PlayStation Blog’s user-voted awards. The song played during the trailer is Kingdom Fall by Claire Wyndham.
