GearNuke: "Atlus confirms that there is currently no Demon's Souls 2 in development for the PS4."
"Contrary to some earlier reports, Sony might be actually working on a successor to Demon’s Souls, although from what we are hearing, it might be a different game with a different name." that's all i need to know
It still sucks, Demon's Souls mechanics were simply amazing. I loved the World&Character tendencies which added so much depth to the game. I hope Sony somehow gives another Demon's Souls as I didn't like the changes made for Dark Souls.
is From Software a sub-company of Atlus? Atlus was just the publisher, and as far as it goes they aren't allowed to say anything about any game that isn't theirs. i don't get it anymore...
This is what I mean, buy them upgrading Sony Japan. Sony Japan should be pumping out games like, The Last Guardian (Ico), Demon's Souls, JRPGs (get some Square devs. / Level 5 / etc...), and Japanese Action Games (Capcom and Platinum games devs). Sony Japan Current: Team Ico: The Last Guardian / PSN art-house games Project Siren: Siren / Gravity Rush Polyphony: Gran Turismo / New IP Sony Japan New Teams: Team JRPG: Demon Souls / Legend of Dragoon / New IP Team Action: Heavenly Sword / PlayStation AllStars / New IP
From soft got rid of world tendencies for Dark souls for gameplay reasons. Not because it's name changed. The sooner you guys accept that the sooner you have to accept Demons souls won't be coming back. Unless it's on the Vita maybe. It's just odd seeing people expecting Demons and Dark souls sequels to be different than one another due to the name. Every single gameplay change from Demons to Dark was done so for the sake of advancement(whether you consider it as advancement or not, Tendencies were not liked by a large group likely the majority including me, I like consistent difficulty). And will carry over to any Demons/Dark game that comes out again. Dark souls IS Demons souls sequel(In the same way FF8 was an FF7 sequel, ie: It is the successor to the series). Dark souls 2 has some major changes from Dark souls. Just like Dark had some from Demons.
"I didn't like the changes made for Dark Souls." I liked some things about Dark Souls better, but I do think Demon's Souls was an overall better game.
@MysticStrummer yes, the DS is a good game but i feel that the lack of tendency system and no penanty when you stay dead is something make the game less punish than demon's souls
Atlus saying no Demon Souls 2 means nothing at all considering they are not the developer of the game (its From Software and SCEJ) nor even the original publisher (only for the US release). They would not know anything about a DS sequel, especially since Sony would definitely localise the sequel themselves making Sony the sole publisher of the game in all regions.
Is it just me or was Demon's Soul's a better game Than Dark Soul's. Dark Souls back stab was overpowered and horrible overused. Dark Soul's had worse frame rate skipping than Demon's Soul's . Demon's Soul's story was better than dark Soul's.
Backstabbing was way worse in DeS. I didn't even have to be right on someone to register a backstab. But I do agree about the frame rate. Frame rate is the only thing I want them to work on. They can continue with the vague story lines if it gives them time to work on other things.
Hidetaka Miyazaki is working on a still unannounced game http://uk.ign.com/articles/... (December 17, 2012) It's been a long time since anything has been said about it, there's still hope Praise the sun
I think you mean "Umbasa".
A new Tenchu.. i wish.
I'm really hoping for a demons souls 2 on PS4. I don't plan to get any more ps3 games either so we'll see what happens. I'm sure with it's success Sony has to be planning something aside from deep down!
Yoshida is a huge Demons Souls fan, which can only be a good thing. http://www.destructoid.com/...
Too bad he apparently did not want to share the game with the west
Too bad for who? Sony? He's openly said that not publishing the game was a mistake, I imagine they won't make that mistake again. Either way we still got Demons Souls in the end and if there's a sequel my bets are on Sony publishing it.
Anyone noticed how big that item select cross has become in the Dark Souls 1 and 2 ,..(dpad)? WHY? make something worse that stuffs the screen even more?? Fix it back,... Yes I'm complaining about details because I love DS.
I would even accept a touched up demon souls 1 in full 1080 on ps4, but a new game would be even better :P
Atlus is not the developer of Demon's Souls. So i assume Sony / From Soft just keep the title tight on their chest. They want to build the hype in the right time and of course Sony also respect From Soft / Namco did with Dark Souls 2. Maybe 3-4 months after Dark Souls 2 released, they will spill the infos.
F that, I don't want this game to only be PS4 as I don't own one. I want any souls game made by From to be available on a system I own. With Demon Souls being my favorite, a direct sequel to that one would be greatly appreciated. We should be asking for a port of Dark Souls 2 to the new consoles, as I'd rather not bust out the 360 for one game.
One word for it: STUPIDITY. Yeah, make one thousand other shooters. Then complain that AAA games don't sell enough, rinse and repeat until bankruptcy.
Ah ... Shit. 'Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.'
No need to get too upset, It is still soo early in this gens cycle and plenty of time to bring these games alive. As gamers we just need to keep letting them know there is alot of interest in making them :)
I just thought, maybe it would be a good thing if GG worked on a like minded Demon Souls game? It sure would be a looker. Their animator a are pretty excellent. What do you think?
