I love how Sony collabed with Miyazaki for a new experince, thank you Yoshida:)

@Alex

Agreed!

Alexious681d ago

It's a really good idea. Personally I hope the game departs quite a bit from Demon/Dark Souls, I'm not the biggest fan of those games.

SolidGear3681d ago

I just hope it's not as difficult. Maybe along the same lines as The Last of Us as far as the survival aspects and everything.

abzdiine681d ago

PlayStation is all about variety and this just one more proof of it

"Personally I hope the game departs quite a bit from Demon/Dark Souls"

It's not going to be that different. Aside from having no shield, no magic and being more challenging. Which is great, in my opinion.

Anyone getting excited thinking this is going to be a different/easier experience than the souls series, needs to revaluate. I can tell you just from watching the leaked trailer, it's made to punish players (like myself) who got to good at the previous games.

odderz681d ago

Sony is making the right choices.

rdgneoz3681d ago

@NextLevel Yep, the game is going to be just as punishing, if not more. In the souls series you could play defensive, wait for the enemy to attack and react. This one seems to make you have to go on the offensive from the start, trying to avoid getting destroyed while not having a shield to save your hide.

AKS681d ago

I wonder if the offensively oriented dual wielders of Dark Souls 2 will have an easier time adapting to Bloodborne. I may put some more time into trying a more aggressive style and see how it goes. I do some 2-handing, but I also like to have a good shield for some circumstances.

UltraNova681d ago

Why make another Demon Souls when you have that need already covered with the Dark Souls series? Its a 100% sure thing we'll see DS 3 on next gen consoles! This way they avoid sales polarization from one IP to the other and keeping things fresh at the same time.

Very smart move from Sony-From.

Back-to-Back681d ago

I might be the minority, but I would have rather saw Miyazaki make a Demons Souls 2 rather than a new IP. I love Demons Souls

kaiserfranz681d ago

Demon's Souls 2 wouldn't have made much such sense, honestly, since Dark Souls is practically the same thing. Bloodborne looks interesting although it's still very similar, I would have preferred something more like Otogi

Festano681d ago

I agree, it would be nice to see a game similar to Otogi.

DragonKnight681d ago

Dark Souls is not the same thing. Lol.

Ignorance like that is what makes me ask if you played Demon's Souls at all.

rdgneoz3681d ago (Edited 681d ago )

Dark Souls was the spiritual successor to Demon's Souls. They couldn't put Demon's Souls 2 on the 360, because Sony helped with the first one.

From wiki: "developed primarily by From Software with assistance from SCE Japan Studio exclusively for the PlayStation 3. It was released in Japan on February 5, 2009 and published by Sony Computer Entertainment"

Demons was separated into levels, while dark was more open world. Both required similar strategy for mobs / bosses - don't rush or you'll get brutally punished. That punishment has been consistent over time, rush and you die. They both also had a form of online integration (notes, invasions, co-op help), though it has changed over time with the series. Both also had the living and hollow form, used souls for currency to level / improve gear, similar crafting / gear improvement system, similar character models, combat mechanics, ...

Though Demon's Souls world tendency was interesting.

DragonKnight681d ago

You don't need to explain Demon's Souls to me, I've owned it since launch.

I misworded my post though. I meant to say not 'exactly' the same. They were very similar, but there are some key differences.

"It's nice to meet you." "We've meet before." "Ah, that's right. I meant it was nice to meet you that time that I met you."

Nice save.

My_Name_BTW_Is_Dante681d ago

Demon's Souls is nothing like the crappy cash-in spinoff they made of it (dark souls). I'd rather have Demon's Souls 2 over a couple of crappy spinoffs. dark souls didn't need a sequel anyway as even the story to the game was trash.
