Rumor: Atlus To Announce Demon's Souls 2 For 2010
But we stand by our judgment call and remind everyone that we loved Atlus' excellent role-playing adventure, too. This is why we're especially excited that the announcement of a sequel could be just around the corner... As noted by Examiner.com, Japanese publication Dengeki hints at a big unveiling of "an unannounced sequel to a title that was released last year." This new sequel will actually be on Japanese store shelves later this year so it's a very fast turnaround if we're talking about Demon's Souls, but it might be possible. Besides, the magazine describes the original game in question as being "very hard and interesting," and that sums up Atlus' RPG to a "T." This could be gigantic news for all those who adored Demon's Souls; the unique RPG even managed to snag Game of the Year honors at GameSpot and other major sources, so the developers obviously did something right the first time around. Sure, it was crazy challenging and we still maintain that the balance left something to be desired, but it really resonated with ardent, hardcore role-playing aficionados. A sequel would quickly rocket to the top of their priority lists for 2010.
If we hear anything more about this, we'll be sure to let you know immediately. It's a PS3 exclusive that earned most all the praise it received, so any follow-up is big news.
