Don't rule it out just yet, though
From Software’s cult action role-playing game Demon’s Souls followed a more arduous path onto the PlayStation 3 than the characters depicted in its maddeningly masochistic campaign. Published by Sony in Japan, the platform holder actually passed on a Western release – a mistake which Worldwide Studios...
Atlus originally only pledged a few months support for Demon's Souls' ambitious multiplayer component
Of course it wasn't counting on the title completely blowing up. And as a result it's announced that it's continuing support for the title into 2012. Good news for soul slayers!
There's a Demon's Souls 2 coming, except it's not called Demon's Souls 2
Project Dark was announced at the Tokyo Game Show by Demon's Souls developer From Software, but it's coming to the XBOX 360. Sony owns the Demon's Souls IP, so while Project Dark might be a spiritual successor to Demon's Souls, it will never adorn the brand on the box. Sony Computer Entertainment Japan's Takeshi Kajii has..
Demon's Souls is widely considered one of the hardest games ever made
Ever. This guy in Japan, "alternalw", finished the game in 54 minutes and 54 seconds. He's clearly mad, insane and a little bit genius. You can watch his entire playthrough on YouTube. Beware of spoilers. Beware of the insanity. We're going to have a lie down.
Sony's announced a bunch of new titles which are set to join the PlayStation 3's "Greatest Hits" line-up
The titles include the previously reported MAG, Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, Demon's Souls, Call Of Duty: World At War, Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Tekken 6
There's something weird about Project Dark, the next Demon's Souls-esque project coming out of From Software
Despite the game's exclusivity in Japan, it will be multiplatform in the West. As such, Sony will not be undertaking publishing duties worldwide (as it was assumed they might with Demon's Souls 2). Therefore, the game will not have the title "Demon's Souls" on it. Which is weird,..
What a success story Demon's Souls has become
The game was brought to the West by Atlus (and later Namco Bandai in Europe) when Sony passed up the publishing rights. It's now one of the biggest exclusive titles in the PlayStation 3's line-up. In fact, it's such a big deal that it's earned "Greatest Hits" status in the US and will be repackaged at a lowly $29.99. If you haven't checked it..
The Black Phantom Edition of Demon's Souls is practically sold out everywhere in the UK
That's according to publishers Namco Bandai Partners, who are only aware of a few "dribs and drabs". "I can't give you a number, but what I mean by an 'amazing success' is that all the stock we built of the Black Phantom Edition has sold out (apart from dribs and drabs)," Lee Kirton,..
When Demon's Souls launched, there were warnings scattered everywhere that Atlus could close the game's servers within six months of its release
The game's gone on to become a smash-hit worldwide, and so Atlus has decided to sponsor the servers for an extended period. They've announced that the online portion of the "hardest game ever" will remain online until "at least" March..
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is spending its second week top of the UK all-formats chart, keeping Westerner Red Dead Redemption just behind in second
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 managed to debut in fourth position, while the likes of Naughty Bear and Demon's Souls slipped after last week's performance. Get the full top-twenty after the jump. LEGO HARRY POTTER: YEARS 1-4 RED DEAD REDEMPTION SUPER MARIO..
LEGO Harry Potter's stolen Red Dead Redemption's crown, and topped the UK sales charts this week
The plastic spell 'em up (which is getting rave reviews) managed to push everybody's favourite video game Western into second place after well over a month in the top spot. It was a pretty good week all round for new video game releases, with releases such as Naughty Bear and Transformers: War For..
Demon's Souls is finally coming to the UK
The innovative exclusive RPG has been privy to enormous viral exposure since it launched in the US - a refreshing nod that players do still care about experiences rather than marketing. And due to the splash the game has caused in the US, it's finally going to hit the UK next month. Check out the trailer for some footage and review anecdotes. We actually..
We told you last week that Demon's Souls was finally getting a Western release in part thanks to Namco Bandai who have taken on publishing responsibilities for the Playstation 3 exclusive
We also told you last week that the game comes with a much needed strategy guide. And in heart-warming news, it's just been announced that said strategy guide has been written by Demon's Souls fans. The guide's..
Namco Bandai has announced that they will be handling publishing duties of Demon's Souls in Europe, and that the game will hit on June 25th
The game will be released exclusively as a special pack called the "Black Phantom Edition", which includes a soundtrack, artbook and strategy guide. The latter being pretty necessary from what we've heard about Demon's Souls' difficulty. Were very..
Ok, you've got us
While From Software's incredible underground hit Demon's Souls was only available as an inport, we could fend off the background noises that told us to get a copy from overseas. But if the game's coming to Europe, we're going to have to play the unique RPG aren't we? Word of a long overdue European Demon's Soul release comes from a German classifications listing pulled up by..
Demon's Souls is a rare beast
The game, developed in conjunction between Sony and From Software, has gone on to become one of Playstation's system sellers in the US - all due to favourable word of mouth. The game's sold nearly over 250,000 copies. So why did Sony pass the publishing off to Atlus then?That was a mistake, said SCE localisation liaison Yeonkyung Kim. It should have come out as a..
Demon's Souls is officially the hardest game ever
Probably. And it looks like it's set to get a sequel in Japan this Fall, according to comments made by Dengeki magazine on their podcast. There's still no mention of a European release for the original Demon's Souls, which has gone on to become something of a sleeper hit in the US since Atlus ported it late last year. A Demon's Souls 2 would..
Good word spreads fast, and despite being completely niche to the point where this is one of the first pieces we've written on PushSquare about Atlus' Demon's Souls -- it's actually becoming one of the Playstation 3's most important exclusives of the year
Positive word of mouth has been the key to much of Demon's Souls success thus far — word of mouth that has caused the game to become almost..
