Demon's Souls provided a financial windfall for its North American publishing partner Atlus, which reported in March that the game had sold 250,000 units. Nearly a year after its release, Demon's Souls may soon be getting a bit more wind in its sails, as Atlus said today that the game has been named to the PlayStation 3's Greatest Hits line, bringing with it a new $29.99 price tag.
Developed by From Software, Demon's Souls takes place in the bleak kingdom of Boletaria. In addition to its steep difficulty, Demon's Souls gained notoriety for innovative online features that allowed users to journey into each other's world to lend a hand or slaughter each other. The game received substantial critical praise and went on to win GameSpot's Game of the Year Award in 2009.
With Sony handling the game's Japan release and Atlus stepping in for North America, Namco Bandai delivered the game to Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Pacific Asia this year.
