Although we did say we're not bothering with April Fools' Day this year because, come on, this is too good not to ignore.

With the build-up for Dark Souls III now reaching a fever pitch, this little trailer pitches the game as an '80s VHS grindhouse splatter-fest. All of which we're totally on board with, April Fools' Day or not.

Before you get all excited, there's no Dark Souls movie on the way - however the release date for the game is correct and it's very obviously footage taken from the game itself.

Take a look.

Dark Souls III hits the shelves on April 12th on PlayStation 4, XboxOne and PC and, all going well, we'll have the review right quick.
