We learnt just the other day that Dark Souls 3 is going to be launching in Japan March 24th. The feeling was that the West would get the game at the same time, having at least some kind of semblance of release parity.
Not so it seems, as Souls fans in American and Europe are going to have to wait a few weeks. While details are a little scarce, Bandai Namco have revealed that the game will hit in April 2016. No more specifics were given beyond that.
That isn't a killer wait, so I'm fine with it. If anything, it gets the game out of the way of Uncharted 4 which launches on the March 18th, 2016. An April date will let the game breathe.
