Demon Souls Sequel is Revealed
If you remember a while back I posted a rumor about there being another Demon Souls in the works, well turns out that rumor was true.

Titled Dark Souls, the game will feature the same level of difficulty and similar amounts of character customization. Dark Souls will have no connection to the story of the previous game but unlike the first one, will feature a much larger seamless world (no regions), as well as more complex geography.

Also character creation will be much improved and instead of choosing a class for your character, you'll be able to much more thoroughly and deeply customize your character. Plus co-op and competitive online features will be seeing a comeback as well.

Finally, unlike Demon Souls, Dark Souls is set to release worldwide by the end of this year (instead of staggered release dates) and will be released on PS3 and XBOX 360 (except for Japan where it will remain a PS3 exclusive).

I never really dove into the first game. I think I might have to pick it up and finish it though.

Its at a very very reasonable price these days, I cant recommend it enough.

It's great that it'll be enjoyed by people on the 360 but from a business standpoint Sony
royally screwed up by not doing everything they could to keep this one exclusive worldwide.
[its ps3 only in japan]

I'm with you on that Saint. Really thought Sony had a good 3rd Party IP exclusive to them. Not sure what they were thinking. I would've liked seeing stay only on the PS3.

Courtesy of a recent interview with Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki, we now know some more details on the game. For one, the game should contain about 60 hours of play time, vs. the 30-40 Miyazaki estimates are in Demon Souls.

Also no demo will be available for the game as From Software can't convey what they would like within the constraints of a demo.

Finally, no downloadable content is planned for the game in the current plans, although if it ever does happen, expect "something interesting" using online functionality.

Well thats refreshing, they wont be holding back any on disc content and charge us
for a 2kb unlock code in the future

Is this title the Demon Souls sequel? I've heard otherwise.

SaintAvi 09-02-2011 11:04 PM

Its a spiritual sequel, Sony owns the Demons Souls IP
but minus the name, this for all intents and purposes is the demons souls sequel.

There currently isnt any inkling of Sony developing their own iteration of the DS franchise
themselves, but I would hope that it just is currently under wraps.
