Atlus Launches Demon's Souls Site
October is going to be downright huge for PlayStation 3 owners; not only are we getting Uncharted 2: Among Thieves on October 13, but exactly one week before, we'll receive the long-anticipated RPG, Demon's Souls.
Revered by many as being one of the finest RPGs of the generation and indeed, of all time, Demon's Souls is the first epic PS3-exclusive RPG of immense size, scope and grandeur. Atlus will be distributing the game in North America and if you haven't rounded up enough information just yet, head on over to the official website, which just launched. There, you will find an excellent trailer, new screens and media, and some news; you can also visit a makeshift blog in Atlus' forums and even purchase the title if you wish. Remember, that attractive Collectors Edition sports a 150+ page strategy guide (which will not be available to purchase separately) and a collectible slipcase. We keep hearing great things about this title, although we have also heard that it will definitely test your mettle; many sources have called it one of the most difficult games in recent memory. But role-playing fans should appreciate that, as they often go in for enhanced depth and intricacy, anyway.
So mark your calendars, RPG fans: October 6 is the day. But also that month, we will have the option of playing Alpha Protocol and Dragon Age: Origins, so you may have some tough decisions to make... There is no "decision" concerning Uncharted 2, though. If you don't buy it, we'll hit you over the head with a mallet or something.
