Demon's Souls 2 Isn't Happening

We know Demon's Souls garnered a ton of fans last year and it now has a die-hard following. However, as much as those fans may want a sequel, From Software says they shouldn't hold their collective breaths.

Although we've all been assuming a sequel would probably be in the works, especially after the better-than-expected sales performance of the original IP, the developers appear to have no interest in pursuing such a project at this point in time. According to Examiner.com citing a podcast on Biglobe, From Software Producer Kajii and director Miyazaki have made it abundantly clear that there is no Demon's Souls 2. They also say they don't plan to do one, which definitely comes as a disappointment to those who have spent many an enjoyable hour indulging in one of the best RPGs of the generation. Of course, there was an undercurrent of very vocal complaints, all centered on the high level of difficulty. We thought it sort of affected the game's inherent accessibility but then again, given the targeted demographic, it probably didn't tick off the hardcore role-playing buffs.

It's just too bad that From Software apparently has no desire to issue a follow-up title. Granted, the original can be played for a loooong time but hey, those aforementioned avid fans have likely had their fill already...right?

From Software has nothing to do with Persona games, or SMT games in general, Atlus just published the game here in america.

Not sure why you gave up on Demon Souls so fast, its not THAT hard with the exception of the flamelurker boss. I could have helped you out back then

The game is not unfairly difficult, there is an easy way to do ANYTHING in the game, including flamelurker. Don't blame your own shortcomings on From Software. They made an incredibly playable and rewarding game, and you couldn't step-up. You are not alone, but you are wrong about whose fault it is.

If you need any help, you can shoot me a PSN message (same name), I got that platinum in about 3 weeks, helped many others get theirs, and know the whole game inside out.

Don't be so harsh guys. I didn't even buy the game 'because' of all the articles and talk online about how insanely difficult it was. I agree with everything World said, I don't play games to show off (that's what trophy hunting is for anyways, as well as prolonging a game) Anyways, I was hoping there was gonna be a Demon's Souls II with a difficulty level of some sort (knowing Demon's Souls, it would be done in a unique way) so it would be a game anyone could enjoy at least in some way. I still may pick up Demon's Souls (Since I've never played it myself, but heard great things) I just didn't want to spend $70-$80 on a new game that may just frusterate me, and who wants to feel that whlie enjoying your hobbie?

Really Ox? If someone doesn't like the game you like you get all personal and pissy and snarky? Grow up. I clearly said it was a quality title, but I don't have the time to invest in that sort of thing. A lot of people don't.

If you ever rent Zemus I suggest doing that first so you know if it's for you.

For the record, getting all the trophies isn't the best part of the game.

People should play this game to experience the game and to play the role of a hero or even a villain if you desire so.

@World,
You needed to give this game more time. There are blue phantoms which help you beat the level. Though there's always many ways in which you will die, that's part of the learning curve. The game is old school

It's like a SNES game, it's all 'bout not babysitting the player*

Imo, the way to do the sequal properly would be to maybe not have difficulty settings, but ratherr have the first playthrough just a normal playthrough, not casual, but accessible to the normal players (I've been playing games since a little before the NES released and I don't even consider myself hardcore, I hate getting frusterated and playing the same thing over and over) then on the second playthrough more things unlock, and the difficulty goes up, etc etc etc. Right? yes, no?

It seems like only Western developers start working on sequels after a success in a certain game, while Japanese developers work on an entirely new game after seeing good sales.

Maybe they want to do something else and play DS by ear, remember wayyyy back in the day when sequels were never certain and you didn't know about them until Poof! they just showed up at the store or in Nintendo Power or some such. Now we get the sequel announced days after the first releases.

If I ever get into v-games I will make a sequel to this game.

Or at least copy everything that was good about it

This is the saddest news in v-games this year. DS2 had the same potential Uncharted 2 had. It had the potential to make an already great game even better, bigger, more focused and with so much quality behind it that it would shine on its own

I can't believe the Japanese aren't mad at this (they probably are), but not in large numbers :(

Well that just makes Demons Souls more of a classic. I really a sequel or part 2, but hey, I see this game being one of those we talk about 5 years from now..."Hey ? remember Demons Souls...yeah that game...nothing like it since right?...exactly". Demons Souls is my favorite PS3 exclusive and I am glad they aren't making a part two because it makes this game even more special, but then again...this news is a clear dissappointment.

I am so saddened by this news. I was going to post a thread in the forums related to Demons Souls yesterday but now there is no point.

Maybe they will at least come out with some DLC. Land of Giants would have been a cool place to explore... or would that fall into the "no follow-up" category :(

Though I'm not too surprised, since the fact that they only hit 250,000 sales by the end of March this year is pretty abysmal considering how amazing this game actually is and how much work they put into it.

It stinks that games that are simple and n00b friendly like MW2 (though I will admit I enjoy it) get so many more sales than a masterpiece such as this one.

It's upsetting that its going to end with only one demons souls. I feel like if a game with this magnitude of difficulty was released years ago when not every game held your hand and actually provided a challenge it would have been much more well received.

However you also can't go without blaming the relatively poor amount of sales on the lack of marketing. So I guess that would be Atlus, the publishers, fault and Sony because apparently they initially passed on publishing this stellar title and now regret it.

I am still saddened by this news that there will not be a sequel. It's understandable by sales standards, but the game had such a high level of difficulty and gave that sense of defeat and triumph at the same time that made it unique.

That's what it all comes down to. Options. Some people want to do things differently then others. No one is right, and no one is wrong.

JPBooch -

There is one problem that persists when you only cater to niche gamers. You get niche sales numbers. There is nothing wrong with offering something that makes both hardcore and casual fans happy. Of course, you have to do it RIGHT..

The end result is more sales, more revenue, and more excitement for a potential sequel. And that my friend, is the entire POINT.

Jofa didn't blast me, Oxvial did, Jofa said I shouldn't blame my shortcomings on From, and well he's wrong I didn't do that. I've been playing games a long time and I know when they are being unfair either through bad programming or (in this case) on purpose. I know the point of the game is to create a massive sense of accomplishment, and I don't feel it is a shortcoming to not need big video game accomplishments and instead enjoy action or story.

It is, however a shortcoming of mine that I need to be treated for high anxiety medical issues and can't allow unneeded frustration and stress into my life, even in the form of games.

Well, in true European style, we don't even get the first one until next month. So maybe there's still a chance that the extra sales and attention will help motivate a sequel.

I've only ever played one RPG (Fallout) but I really like the look of Demon's Souls. It is a little worrying that you RPG vets are complaining about the difficulty though. I'll be sure to bubble-wrap all my valuables before I start.

It's more an Action-RPG than a true RPG. Like the bastard child of an unholy union between Ninja Gaiden, Elder Scrolls, and Legend of Zelda, with a dash of Kingdom Hearts and Resident Evil. Or something.

Really, it's sort of a difficult game to quantify. I stick by the Action-RPG label, but making comparisons to other games is a bit difficult.

Noooo, thats terrible news. Hope they get some interest in it soon - its hands down the best game this generation. And no way would an easier version be a good thing. At first, the game seems rock hard and very unforgiving. But you just know that each time you die, you're learning - and getting better. I actually get frustrated by games like DMC for their difficulty, but DS rewards strategy and patience.

Aye, while I'm a hardcore RPG fan that really didn't think much of Demon's Souls (beyond it's excellent atmosphere), it's still a crying shame that a game that so many enjoyed seems to not be getting a follow-up. Lobby long and hard, DS fans - as dev costs for the PS3 drop, it may become worthwhile for From to make more gaming goodness for you :).

Strange that From Software instead chooses to make 5 or 6 Armored Core games which arent nearly as good...granted those have their fan bases, but DS2 will definitely have its own. Why not make one I just dont understand.

So this begs the question -- what are they working on if it isn't DS2? Demons Souls came out of nowhere and blew my socks off. Hopefully their next game will be just as good, whatever it turns out to be.

It's not that Demon's Souls is all that "hard". Well, it is hard. But it's more brainy than brutally difficult. You can't just aimlessly run in undiscovered places because you just don't know what's going to happen. The devs of this game kept me guessing every time.

The other reason why it's so hard is because you actually have something to lose if you die. This concept is totally lost on the new generation of games. Having a bunch of souls and then determining whether you should press on in bravery or find the safest way to the Nexus isn't inconvenient, it's an incredible game experience.

I'm new to the game. Last night, while pressing on through level 2-2's tunnels, praying that I wouldn't run into something that would destroy me, all the while bravery and morbid curiosity fueled me to go on...holy crap! I haven't felt this tense about a game since playing Ultima Online.

ok to all of you that are saying this game is to hard. stop being a cry baby about it this game really isnt that hard you just have to be smarter... thats all there is to it. you cant just run in to every situation in this game slashing and hope to come out alive. if something doesnt work the first time think about it before you just go running in like an idiot becuase thats problly how you got killed the first time. yes this game can be difficult at first but after you figure it out its really very simple. this game isnt about simple brute force. you have to take time to see whats happening and make a plan if you just run around swining aimlessly that is why you sucked at this game.. use your brian people.... sucks there wont be a ds 2 im on ng++++++ and love this game its one of the best games out there for hardcore rpg fans. there is nothing like the sence of accompleshment you get from finisheing a game most cant... love this game!!!

Finding this page and reading this news has lead me into alcoholism. I put my blood, sweat, even tears into Demon's Souls, I've never been a fan of new generation video games because of the "hold your hand" style dev's are going for here in the U.S. Then I get this game, blow the dust off my ps3 and it was love.

I've beaten the game well over 30 times and have 1 character SL 611, but something keeps me coming back.. But whats the point anymore? The servers will be closed down soon and everyone will go back to playing trash like "Call of Plz line infinity wards pockets"

Seriously. This is probably the biggest slap in the face related to video games I've ever felt.

Why...... WHY!?
