Rumor: Demon Souls 2 May Be Announced at Sony Nov. 15 Event

According to a reputable NeoGaf member, “the Demon’s Souls spiritual successor” may be shown at Sony’s PlayStation 4 launch event.

Famousmortimer, who previously leaked the DriveClub delay and the next-gen resolutions for Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4, revealed information he was given months ago about the launch event. (PS4)

Even though I'd love it if it was true, I find it hard to believe. Dark Souls 2 is coming out early next year, There is also Deep Down

I read the article and it says "Demon’s Souls spiritual successor", not "a Demon's Souls sequel".

Dark Souls is the spiritual successor for Demon's Souls. I'm guessing this means Dark Souls 2 is coming to the ps4.

If this is true I'll buy a ps4 just to play that game on it. ... I'd probably buy the game for the ps3 as well just for the online community.

I'm addicted, what can i say! O.o

Demon's Souls is a Sony owned IP and Dark Souls was a way around that problem. If it's being shown at the PS4 event then it's more likely to be Demon's Souls 2

If I had to choose between Dark Souls 2 and Demon's Souls 2 for PS4 I would rather like to touch the demon inside her, again.

Dark Souls somehow doesn't come close to what made Demon's Souls so special.
wsoutlaw87  +   668d ago
dark souls 2 isnt next gen and demon souls is sony exclusive. I also dont know much about deep down but I would love a new demons souls, was probably my favorite ps3 game.
Lord_Sloth  +   668d ago
Yes but that doesn't mean Sony can't show up with a new DeS game for the PS4.
SilentNegotiator  +   668d ago
Sony owns Demon's Souls. They could easily have passed the IP onto someone else to make.

The whole point of "Dark Souls" was to sequel Demon's Souls on all systems without REALLY breaking copyright.

According to developers and Sony it only takes 2 months to get your game up and running on PS4 at playable framerates (my guess 20 - 30fps). Dark Souls doesn't come out until March, and it's only November so that means the game can be up and running by January, and with another 2 - 3 months to go it's possible, but I wouldn't hold my breath, and if it does happen it'll likely be a 1 - 3 month delay (April - June).
gaffyh  +   667d ago
I absolutely love Demon Souls, just got into from PS+ and am almost done playing. So will look into Dark Souls and teh sequel after I've finished that. But I would love a Demon Souls sequel, but I don't think it will happen because I can't see them wanting to piss off Capcom (deep down) and From Software (Dark Souls), unless From is making the game.
Rynocirator  +   667d ago
@gribblegrunger There was no "problem" with the fact demon's souls was a ps3 exclusive, it sold incredibly well. The problem is that FROMSOFTWARE was bought out by NAMCOBANDAI and atlus owned the rights to demon's souls, so they made dark souls instead. It could very well be atlus creating a sequel, but you can be sure as hell FROMSOFTWARE won't be making it.

vishmarx  +   668d ago
really hope so.
but unlikely since FROM is already working on DS2.
dark souls was a spiritual successor. demon souls sequel seems kinda unnecessary at this point.dark And demon n dark werent THAT different to warrant two separate sequels

I thought they were. I tried so many times to get into Demon Souls and just couldn't do it. I don't know if it was the whole Nexus thing or what, I just couldn't do it. I absolutely LOVED Dark Souls though.

I'm super excited for Dark Souls 2, I probably couldn't say the same if it was Demon Souls 2 being announced instead.
MetaReapre  +   668d ago
Well it doesn't seem so far fetched as the reason dark souls was named thusly was because Sony claimed rights to the demon souls name. (Correct me if I'm wrong) if Sony was holding the demon souls name, it could be for this very moment. Also wasn't the director or an important person that worked on dark souls collaborating with Sony on some project that was rumored to be the next demon souls? I never did follow that much so I don't know if that project was ever announced or something.
Killjoy3000  +   668d ago
I just don't understand this. If we already have Dark Souls, why do we still need Demon's Souls? It's the same game...
cpayne93  +   668d ago
Very different in art style and level design. Demon's Souls was much better than Dark Souls in my opinion.
Killjoy3000  +   668d ago
A sequel of any type, regardless of name, would have those same differences. Ghost disagreer's - lmfao.
cpayne93  +   668d ago
I disagree. Dark Souls was a spiritual sequel to Demon's Souls, and it fits that term very well. The gameplay is similar in many ways but there is a big departure in terms of personality and design. To say they are the same game is ridiculous. It is pretty rare when a sequel abandons elements of past iterations to bring in new things, usually they just build on what is already there. I can see why you would say if we have one we don't need the other, but they definitely aren't the same game. Personally though, I would love a demon's souls 2 to go along with dark souls 2.

I've never once found Demon's or Dark Souls stressful. But they are the two most rewarding and addicting games I've ever played. DS4 seems pretty durable you should give it a go ;)

As someone who enjoyed demon souls more than dark souls I'm
Very excited for this. And all can put vets that this will be exclusive.

I always like demons souls better for its darker more grim feeling
KingKelloggTheWH  +   668d ago
Demons was just better overall, cant wait to play Demons 2!
Sevir  +   668d ago
Well Its not a stretch, the Dark Soul's Producer does have another game being worked on at From software, and that Studio is great partners with both MS and Sony and has given them both great and not so great exclusives. In anycase Demon's Souls really was the game that PUT From Software to a studio worth working with.

Shu actually details that it was his fault why Sony didn't Publish the game in the States and Europe because He got his ass handed to him by the unforgiving nature of game. Shu said he threw his DS3 at the TV because of how brutal it was, and provided feedback in sayin that they'd not profit from because its too hard and US users prefer easier games... Only to see the game Sell bucket loads in Japan and later on sell a even more impressively in the west in both Europe and NA spanning a dedicated fanbase, as such Namco got DS and DS2 as spiritual successors...
Poor Shu lol.

Still Dark Souls 2' director said his next game being unannounced is a Next gen Ip... given that SHu has said that they love the Demon's Souls Ip and that He personally is a fan of the game its not hard to believe that They have something cooking up.

Geoff saying that New Game announcements and premiers are happening at PS4AllAccess I'd put this up as likely! and I cant freaking wait.

This is on wikipedia.org under Demon's Souls. You can get the source material from wikipedia. Edit: Its' a polygon.com interview from June 13, 2013. So, I'm officially excited that this rumour may very well be true.

*While Dark Souls is not a sequel to Demon's Souls, but a spiritual successor, there has been no official announcement of a sequel to Demon's Souls. However, a European retailer listed "Demon's Souls II" on their website as an upcoming title for the PS4 system. When asked about a potential sequel to Demon's Souls, SCE Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida stated; "That's a great question, but because of the attention that will get, I choose not to answer. But, personally, I love Demon's Souls. I spent hours and hours and hours playing it." He went on to say. "I love the team, I love the game and yeah, I'd really like to see more. But that's all that I will say." *
