Those who play Demon’s Souls online will be in for a treat this Halloween, with what apparently sounds like a bit of a hard quest.
We’ll let the PR explain it to you.
“Early reports from the Kingdom of Boletaria indicate that the Old One’s power grows,” announced Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales for Atlus, shuffling awkwardly under the weight of his full set of fluted armor.
“We’ve discovered that the nefarious Demon will seek to descend the land in pure blackness on All Hallow’s Eve. His minions will be more powerful, but the rewards for those who seek to challenge them will be greater as well. We don’t know how long this dark tendency will last, but we do advise those prone to controller-into-LCD syndrome to proceed carefully.”
Jabbari then cackled as he quickly put a Thief’s ring on his finger and disappeared.
Demon’s Souls is out now for PS3.

No one owns Demon’s Souls yet. No one. The game doesn’t release for another few days. Procurring an early copy is impossible. Even if you’re the President.
But, hypothetically, if you’ve somehow managed to weasel your way into a copy of Demon’s Souls before its release date, Atlus would like you to know that the game’s online servers won’t be live until October 6. The publisher told us as much in a press email.
For now, you’ll just have to make do with single player. Or you would, if you had a copy of Demon’s Souls. Which you don’t.

Some new Demon’s Souls screens popped up on the internet today. Some are new at any rate.
The PS3 exclusive is expected to land on shelves October 6 in the US.
So far, it’s still an import for the UK, but it sure looks worth it despite the scariness of those fire breathing bee thingies.
Head on over to Kotaku and have a look.

Atlus has detailed the preorder swag a bit more for the Standard and Deluxe versions of Demon’s Souls over on the US PS Blog.
All preorders come with a full-color, 40-page art book featuring sketches, designs, and renders that show off the game’s “gritty medieval aesthetic” along with the soundtrack.
In short, the Deluxe edition will include the above along with a 150+ page strategy guide, a collectible slip case, the game’s complete musical score, and a premium art book and the Standard gets the game and the above referenced swag.
The game arrives in North America on October 6.

Ugh. Bad news there folks.
The title is currently without a European publisher, so Demon’s Souls is currently not venturing to the continent any time soon.
“We have no plans to publish it in Europe at present,” Sony told Eurogamer.
The Atlus series Shin Megami Tensei was brought to Europe by Tecmo Koei, but there are no plans to do the same with this particular title, the site was told.
Same with Ubisoft which has published Atlus titles in the past.
It was announced for an October 6 release in the US yesterday.

Atlus said today that PS3 RPG Demon’s Souls will release on October 6 in the US.
The game will get a deluxe edition, which includes a strategy guide and a “collectible outer slipcase”.
Pre-orderers of either the normal or bumped-up SKU will get a free art book.
Details after the break.

Atlus has announced that it has secured the North American publishing rights for Demon’s Souls.
Expected to hit PS3 sometime this fall, it will feature online support as well as co-op and the single-player game.
According to the press release, players can:
Team up with two other players in simultaneous cooperative play, working together to topple some of the game’s colossal bosses, or force your way into the games of skilled players and challenge them to PvP battle. Leave hints and clues for those who will follow in your footsteps; either intentionally or through your own inadvertent demise, your bloodstains will allow your successors to view a replay of your death, hinting at how to avoid your gruesome fate.
We think it looks fabulous, and Eurogamer even gave it a 9/10.
More details are posted in the press release.

Siliconera’s reporting that PS3 RPG Demon’s Souls is voice-acted in English, so you’ll be able to play it despite the fact it’ll never get out of Japan.
The From Software game’s out of stock at Play-Asia at the moment, but we’re sure you could find it if you were enterprising.
Eurogamer posted loads of new shots over the weekend, just in case you need to be persuaded.

On Gamersyde. The From Software PS3 title appears to be an RPG involving dragons, running around castles and putting on armour. Looks pretty. See for yourself.

1UP’s posted some translated text from this week’s Famitsu which gives a fair amount of detail on From Software’s PS3 RPG Demon’s Soul, which was announced this morning.
“I am a fan of From Software, but naturally that also means there are parts of their games I’m not satisfied with, too,” SCE Japan producer Takeshi Kajii told the magazine.
“If this was a new King’s Field game, there would be areas we wouldn’t be able to touch since they’re part of the series; working together like this, we can try to make something really new.”
The game takes place in Boletaria. The king’s woken up a monster and the country’s covered in fog. As you do.
You, a nameless hero who you’re free to customize Elder Scrolls-style, must save the kingdom
Apparently the game’s designed to be as open-ended as possible.
“You get only the barest minimum of a goal, and there’s nothing forcing you to do anything in the game,” Kajii said. “People say to you ‘Save the world,’ but you can ignore them and keep going if you like.”
More through the link. There’ll be proper detail from TGS.
