Gallery: Dark Souls 2 screens are full of stats, stabbing and serious nasties

A large selection of new Dark Souls 2 screenshots have appeared online by way of AGB.

The new shots show off character creation and stat screens, as well as scenes of characters going up against the game's freaky enemies.

The Dark Souls 2 release date is March 11 in North America and March 14 in Europe for PS3 and Xbox 360. A PC edition of the game will follow "shortly" after this.

A complete list of Dark Souls 2 Achievements were also recently published online.
