Calls it an "intriguing boss"
In a new PlayStation Blog post, various developers have been asked what their favourite boss is from games developed by FromSoftware. Chief among them is creator Hidetaka Miyazaki himself, who explains the Old Monk encounter from Demon's Souls is his personal favourite. The boss fight first appeared in the PlayStation 3...
Cult classic gets insane upgrade
Demon’s Souls, arguably the flagship PlayStation 5 launch game, looks extraordinary running on Sony’s next-gen system – but how does it compare to the original PlayStation 3 game? Well, as you probably may imagine, the delta between the two versions is extraordinary, with Bluepoint’s remake bursting with...
The soul still burns
Ah, good ol’ Demon’s Souls, eh? Before the series became a colossal hit, Sony actually funded the cult From Software role-playing game – although it famously passed on publishing it outside of its native Japan. The title went on to become a classic, of course, and there’s been rumours for a while that the platform...
Does he really know something?
Kotaku's Jason Schreier is a respected member of games media, often breaking news on important issues facing the industry. He's held in high regard and is well connected, and will often comment on rumours he's heard through the grapevine. The popular gaming forum ResetEra recently opened a thread, wishfully hoping for...
But it'd have to be handled by another studio

Going dark around the globe
Update: Both Bandai Namco and Atlus have now confirmed that Demon’s Souls’ servers will be switched off in Europe and North America respectively on 28th February, meaning that the game’s days are numbered after nine years of life. As previously reported, you will still be able to play offline, though key...
Sony would need to find a developer, though
While we'd assumed that the industry was collectively done with remasters, it seems that there's still plenty of pent-up demand for a re-release of Demon's Souls on the PlayStation 4. And it could still happen according to director Hidetaka Miyazaki – it's just unlikely that From Software will be at the...
The secret in the souls
Who would have guessed that FromSoftware would go on to make a dent on the global game development scene when it dropped Demon's Souls? A seemingly inconspicuous title upon release, it spawned a game formula that has evolved and enthralled more and more with its sophisticated sequels. The games test your resolve with a blend...
From heaven (or hell)
Hidetaka Miyazaki's rise to prominence has been swift and unexpected. The Japanese developer – who now has a slew of critically acclaimed titles under his belt – most recently fronted production on PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne, but his career path is an unusual one. He started out working for US company Oracle, before...
