Demon's Souls: Black Phantom Edition Revealed For Europe
It just has to be one of the coolest special editions we've seen, and it's bound to appeal to role-playing fans everywhere. ...too bad only those in PAL regions will get a shot at it.
According to Electronic Theatre, Namco Bandai has revealed the details of the upcoming Demon's Souls: Black Phantom Edition, set to be released in PAL regions on June 25. This great collector's set includes a brand new hardcover art book loaded with concept and game art, a strategy guide, and the original soundtrack, and although the source doesn't list a price, we have to imagine it's not exactly cheap. But at the same time, it's very likely that RPG fans in Europe and elsewhere have been waiting anxiously to get their hands on what is widely considered to be one of the best role-playing experiences of the generation. Fans in Japan and North America will absolutely defend it to the death, so that should say something. Sure, it's challenging - and some will say, "overly difficult" - but if you don't mind dying a lot, and you intend to be patient and vigilant, the rewards will be great.
Well, we know what RPG aficionados will be doing in a few weeks time: lining up for Demon's Souls. Too bad From Software says they won't be doing a sequel.
