What should the next game in the Souls series be called? If they stick with Ban Dai, I guess they can't make a Demon's Souls 2, would they make a Dark Souls 2? Or would they use another modifier, and go with something like Black Souls?

Dracula's Souls.

Well, "Dark Souls" being the sequel to "Demon's Souls" is basically a modifier. If they go by that pattern, then I doubt they'll be doing something like "Dark Souls 2". It'd be unfair because it'd have to be in the same time period and what not, with just a SLIGHTLY different storyline. Demons Souls never had that, therefore It would unbalance the shit out of this genre of games.

We don't even know if they'll be making another one, but I'd assume it'd be something like "--- Souls". --- being the word to suggest, but I can't think of anything. They'll always have it like (something) and then "Souls" right after it. That's the basic preset of the games themselves.

Although... "Humans Souls" would've been my first suggestion.

Dragon's Souls?

Dark souls is named thusly for story purposes, also because it sounds cool. The Dark souls in the game are in reference to the 4 souls of the last 4 bosses. Calling it Dark Souls 2 wouldn't make any sense, cos they're all dead.

Dicktits Souls, is my bet.

It's not really a pattern. It's just they didn't retain the rights to the name after switching publishers. If it weren't for that this would probably just be Demon's Souls 2, or Demon Souls: "insert subtitle here". I'd expect them to keep the Dark Souls name as long as they keep the same publisher, or retained the rights to the title this time since branding is important.

I also have no problem with them keeping the Dark Souls title and switching up to different worlds the same way Final Fantasy does.

If they did have to change it again I'm sure it would be "word that starts with 'D'" Souls.

I think this naming convention would be a lot more fun:

1st game: Demon's Souls

2nd game: Dark Souls

3rd game: Dark X

4th game: Y X

5th game: Y Z

6th game: M Z and so on..

Following this pattern I think the next game should be called Dark Sprites.
