Dark Souls Director Displays Terrifying Demon Art

Beauty is a relative term.

So when Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki says that all the monsters he designs are "beautiful" to him, regardless of their hideous appearance, we understand perfectly.

In honor of the game's release this week, the PlayStation Blog has tossed up a bunch of demon art, which displays the unbelievable design and creativity that went into the game's deadliest adversaries. It's brutal but immensely rewarding, and Miyazaki has a message for all those wishing to attempt the dark journey:

"I am hoping all of you experience meaningful deaths many times in the game. I know that the game is challenging, but I want you to keep trying to overcome any difficulty you face in the game. And please feel a great sense of achievement when overcoming a difficulty!"

We're not sure what a "meaningful death" really is but again, we get the point. Those art designs really are amazing, too; check out drawings for the Gaping Dragon, Snake Man, Crystal Undead, Sealer, Havel's Armor, Bell Gargoyle, The Egg-Bearer, Embraced Knight, Dragon Zombie (pictured here), Titanite Demon, Black Knight, and Gravelord Nito. Nito is a name you will become familiar with, if you aren't already.

For anyone who desperately wants to ring those Bells of Awakening, we wish you the best of luck.

The designs are really amazing. The gaping dragon and zombie dragon are what impressed me the most. This makes me want to finish Demon's Souls.

If I preorder this game does that mean I get some DLC which causes my character to have a heart attack at random moments to make it harder?

But jokes aside, even if this game is just gloating its difficulty, At least the art design seems more creative than their last game. Demon Souls has to be one of the blandest games I have seen this gen.

It is so pretty in a depressing and disturbing way.

I love it!

Now I just have to wait a week for my pre-ordered copy to arrive. This is the last time I will have one delivered to me.

Just wanted to let everyone know that i have experienced the issues with the camera. I think i might have found a solution within the game that minimizes it. In the options window if you select the Toggle auto lock-on mode to OFF, the Camera auto wall recovery OFF, and set the Camera speed to 4. It seems to be allot better.

What i propose if anyone needs these features for example because the camera is stuck in a wall or what have you to turn them on when needed and then turn them off again. I am hopeful that From Software finds a way to rectify the issue. But do not be mistaken this game is great and i believe with these settings it becomes a non-issue, in my opinion.
