European players eager for an excuse to return to the punishing realm of Boletaria will receive a good one on 23rd January, when Demon’s Souls brings its specific brand of challenge to the PlayStation Network. As previously reported, the title will arrive on the North American digital storefront next week.

Local publisher Namco Bandai added that the game’s European servers will be staying online for the foreseeable future. That’s great news if you’re a fan of misleading messages and people who get a kick out of stuffing up your game.
