Namco Bandai has sent us a new batch of Dark Souls 2 screenshots, featuring new characters and locations. These include the mysterious Emerald Herald, the cursed knight Lucatiel of Mirrah and an apostle called Blue Sentinel Targray. You can also see the Deep Pit, Majula and an iron gondola that carries the player between areas.

Dark Souls 2 is out on March 11 on the Xbox 360 and PS3, with  the PC coming soon after.
