Now that we have a few RPGs this generation to pave the way for more, fans of the genre feel a little more cheered at future prospects. For those who like the Eastern style of RPGs mixed with a Western hack 'n slash gameplay format, we suggest you pay attention to From Software's Demon's Souls, which is scheduled to release on February 5 in Japan but doesn't yet have a North American or European release. Considered to be the spiritual successor to King's Field, this action/RPG holds a "dark fantasy" theme and allows the player to create their own character and set off on an adventure in the kingdom of Voletaria. The realm is in upheaval due to the emergence of beasts and demons that have steadily annihilated the race of human warriors, which means you're gonna have your hands full. But you'll be able to utilize a variety of weaponry – each weapon type should significantly change the experience – and your quest could be epic in overall size and scope.
