    Didn’t they say it’s a late Summer release? Here it says Winter. Also, LOVE the last scene after the name reveal.

    Which part? I saw both films a and don’t think they had self spine ripping for swords. Of course that was a loooong time ago and I might have forgotten.

    I’m getting Demon’s Souls vibe from it… Remember – Demon’s Souls was created by conjoined efforts of From Software and Sony Japan. Then From Software moved on and made multiplatform Dark Souls on their own, and now we’ll see Sony Japan vision..
    Deep inside I think I’m glad i have a Vita.

    True. While I do get a bit of Dark Souls vibe from the trailer, it feels closer Demon’s Souls. If this is in any way a spiritual successor to Demon’s Souls, it will instantly become my most anticipated game of 2011. Seriously, Dark Souls was decent but ages behind Demon’s Souls in most aspects.

    Bad memory :(
    The only image I can remember is the end of 2nd film.

    Thanks for the link. Love this part:

    “composers from games such as Chrono Trigger and Xenogears and producers from Dark Cloud and Demon’s Souls”
    Dark Could and Demon’s Souls!? Seriously!? I was already super excited about it but now…

    @7,

    “composers from games such as Chrono Trigger and Xenogears and producers from Dark Cloud and Demon’s Souls.”

    Woah. Composers from these games are fantastic.

    My only issue is that there won’t be a lot of RPG aspects in the game. 4 player co-op? Interesting.

    Sony is very confident in this game, but i’m not sure that this is a mass marketing appeal. But whatever.

    FAO Johnny Cullen – for ‘Below the break’ see also, ‘After the jump’:

    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=after%20the%20jump

    It’s equivalent to you writing something like “Want to know what I’m going to say next? Read all about it in the next paragraph..”
