: : : : : Demon's Souls

[edit] Background

King Allant the XII, the last king of Boletaria, searched tirelessly to expand his might. The Nexus, a great ice shrine nestled in the mountains, bestowed the power of the souls onto him, bringing prosperity to his kingdom. Still unsated, he returned again to the Nexus, where he foolishly awakened the Old One from its eternal slumber. This long forgotten evil, now wrought upon Boletaria, plunged the realm into darkness and fog. A mighty demon horde poured into the kingdom, devouring the souls of men.

Champions from other realms learned of Boletaria's fate and sought to deliver the kingdom from evil; none would return from the cursed land. Called upon by a mysterious maiden in black, you go forth, the last hope for humanity in a place lost to demons and darkness...

Demon's Souls has a been a massive hit in both Asia and the States. Last year it won various "Best RPG" awards, even bagging a few Game of the Year ones too. My only gripe with Demon's Souls is that RPG fanatics in the UK may never get their hands on it!

Heath Flor gave Demon's Souls a flawless 9.5 in his Neoseeker review. To put things into perspective, Mass Effect 2 and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves are the most recent to get the almost perfect 9.9. Demon's Souls is said to be the staple example of action-RPGs, offering plenty of replay value.

The port could easilly be made for PAL regions, but the only factor holding Atlus back would probably be the sales figures here in Europe. The continent is only host to few hardcore gamers, but it hasn't stopped other unique titles releasing. Another JRPG titled White Knight Chronicles is launching next month for all regions, which makes the situation even stranger. You expect casual gamers to invest more in action RPGs than the conventional turn-based ones, eh?

Coming back to my main point, Atlus should really consider making the port soon. With Game of the Year status supporting it, I'm sure it will be an equal success here in the UK. If it doesn't happen though, PS3 games are region free, so importing the game would work fine.
