Dark Souls Does "Not Need DLCs", Is "Fully Complete", says Namco Bandai

As announced at Gamescom, we are not planning any DLCs for Dark Souls. The game is deeply balanced with its exquisite enemy placements and map designs. We intend on focusing a lot of our resources towards fine tuning and balancing the game, and feel that additional content such as DLCs may hinder the game balance we have achieved for all players who pick up this game.Sure, the PS2 wasn't a long time ago (though I'm sure some of you were thinking about blowing Nintendo cartridges), but in this new online console age, nearly every major publisher has pre-order, DLC, Collector's Edition shenanigans that make players wonder whether they're really getting the full package. On that note, the Limited Collector's Edition of Dark Souls comes in a collectible tin and includes a bonus artbook at no extra charge. That's right, it's still $59.99; that's a thank you to the fans if there ever was one:
Finally, I would like to be fair to all fans of Dark Souls. I do not intend on providing any items or weapons which a player can buy in order to become advantageous in the game. I would rather prefer to provide an equal amount of opportunities to everyone in order to strive and achieve getting all items based on the effort a player makes. Ultimately, we aim for players to sincerely feel a sense of accomplishment when conquering the difficult tasks in the game.
