‘Demon’s Souls’, the 2009 role-playing action game, is coming to the PSN network as a downloadable game. It will go for roughly $20.
This was announced via the Playstation Blog on January 4 by the publisher of the game, Atlus. It will be available starting January 8, 2013.
Also, a Pure White World Tendency even for ‘Demon’s Souls’ will be held on January 8-14. This will ‘slightly’ bring down the game’s difficulty.
The original ‘Demon’s Souls’ (a horrible grammatical lesson for any person) was released in 2009 for the Playstation 3. It is a fantasy role-playing action game where the player controls a character who, right at the start of the game, gets killed and goes through the rest of the game with—most of the time—half of his full health. The difficulty is notoriously high in the game, and was only brought down slightly in its sequel, ‘Dark Souls’ (a title made by someone who knows the English language).
Last May, Atlus had planned on shutting down the online servers for ‘Demon’s Souls’, since the game relies on online play so players can interact with each other and help each other. This has obviously not been the case.
Atlus editor Nich Maragos has revealed that ‘Demon’s Souls’ is also Atlus’ highest-selling title of all time.
