Dark Souls 2, publisher Namco Bandai announced this week.
As part of the announcement, Serafinowicz revealed that he's a hardcore game player and a big fan of the original Dark Souls, calling it "the most engrossing game I've ever played," and "the best game of all time." Serafinowicz is a veteran voice actor within the industry, previously playing roles in games like Star Wars: Battlefront II and Lego City Undercover.
In Dark Souls 2 Serafinowicz will voice Mild-mannered Pate, a mysterious treasure hunter who "may teach players a few tricks of his own in order to survive during their quest." Little else has been revealed regarding Pate's role in the story, but if we may suggest a minor change to the Dark Souls formula, Pate could serve as an ever-present companion character -- à la Navi, or Omochao -- chiding players for their missteps and offering helpful hints like "Hey! Blighttown is dangerous!"
