    The Dark Souls 2 Website

    Post by Repto on Sun Dec 09, 2012 8:10 am

    I think there are some clues about the game hidden here, as it only makes sense.

    It's possible that time could play a strong part in DS2, because when you watch the swinging pendant for a minute or 2, you can see 'echoes' of it lagging slightly behind. Now, it could just be to tease the DS community after all the searching for the pendant's use, but I think there's something more important behind it. Maybe it's both.

    After, a second look, I noticed that about 12 seconds in, when the pendant swings to the left, there seems to be a wind or an earthquake that pushes it further on. Important, or just for flavour?

    well, it looks cold and slightly snowy and I'm loving the furlined armour, so the icy touch could be an interesting direction to take it in I think.

    DS could easily avoid any Skyrim comparisons if it were to have a more wintry theme because the Art style is so different (infinitely better).

    Without doubt Miyazaki thought ok, what shall we put on the DS2 webpage. . . obvious answer was the pendant. We cant necessarily read much into it at this point, its just a swinging pendant, but I like that FROM are still having a laugh about it, its probably gonna feature in the game in some way too no doubt.

    That's true enough. I have to agree about the armour, it's beautiful!

    The thing about that pendant on the website is that it has an orb on it, where as the pendant from DkS was just circular. :pendant: It's almost certainly not the same one, so it begs the question, what does the new pendant do? :suspect:

    @Djem
    Haha, they know we won't be able to resist.

    I had another thought. It looks like a vial or flask of some sort. Estus flask 2.0? Some other flask type thing related to the story?

    Well, Amazon and Gamestop both have the pre-order listed as 12/31/2013, but I think it's doubtful they'd release at Christmas. Especially since both other Souls games have come out in October (at least in NA).

    I think the knight is holding something white in his hand. It's not his gauntlet for sure. It seems like he is at the brink of giving up and just clinging to this white part of clothing?

    Edit: NVM t's just his shoulder.
