Demon's Souls 2?

Tenchu!

Oh god I'd get so wet. It'll probably be related to Demon Souls however :(, which is still great but a new Tenchu would be amazing.

Hasn´t been officially announced by FromSoftware that Demons Souls sequel is completely off the table. You are as annoying as the ones who beg for a Shenmue sequel.

If it's Demons Souls, than they should keep the hub world.

Something that's bothering me with all the screens that have been "leaked" is that damn mouse cursor on the top right side of every single screen. It seems to be in the same exact position in every single one of them... :S

Your right i just noticed it, wonder what it means but everything looks so legit to be be fake but like any other rumored news its hard to say anything more till the official confirmation.

Another Bad game being passed off as "difficult" for all the Masochists out there ?

Could be a development build and the screenshot is taken from within the tool set. Maybe it uses a really impressive level editor.

either that or it's a fake.

The screens don't seem fake tho.

Once again, Demon Souls has already a sequel. It´s called Dark Souls. Only idiots cannot grasp it. Whatever it is, it's not Demon Souls 2.

Its starting to appear on Gaf too.. seems more and more legit now

this always happens the closer we get to E3, more and more games will slightly start to get leaked out before E3.

Demon's Souls 2/spiritual successor has been "confirmed" by a couple of the GAF industry boffins for a while now, whatever that's worth, there was talk of Miyazaki/FS collaborating with Sony Japan Studio again. They better not be talking bullplop. Looks like they weren't.

the word came from Atlus but they have nothing to do with From Software (acquired by Kadokawa) or Demon's Souls, an IP owned by Sony.

Hopefully not. I like the series but it'll get so stale if they make too many of them.

Btw, the Gaf thread right now seems to be taking the word of a poster which "confirmed" it's real. Many of the replies to that post seem to imply that he/she has confirmed legit stuff in the past.

As always, take it with a grain of salt. E3 will tells us more (or not).

E3 better tell me more about last guardian as well!

It's time for Team Ico to ryse from the ashes.

While i know the Souls franchise is pretty popular this news isnt interesting me as i disliked Demon Souls ( not into games that make you rage ) so hopefully this game is one of many other exclusives to be revealed at E3.

almost a month left till E3!

It's a spiritual successor.

I guess only idiots can't grasp what a sequel actually is.

Wasnt he the same guy who worked on Demon Souls?

Very interesting i think its seriously great that Sony own the IP that started the Souls popularity and for this IP ( if true ) to be the first next gen Souls game it will make the PS4 even bigger.

#29 Edited by XboxDone74 (2116 posts) -

And the goty Demons Souls jelly is running wild in this thread already.

Agree. Dark Souls might not be a "sequel", but if not it was directly ripped off and inspired from Demon's Souls. So in effect there has been a trilogy.

Although if they made it a proper next gen game, working with Sony 1st party... it could still be awesome. It can't be more of the "same old same old" though.

It's a parody account, but all signs are pointing towards Demon Souls 2. There were rumors before of Sony funding a new game and it looks like this might be it.

Would probably make for a more balanced game than those goddamn OP lightning bolts in DS2.

Also, pirate zombies? Pirate. F*cking. Zombies. And dogs too :P

I'm thinking it's going to be more Victorian and less medieval.

I'm guessing it's a standalone title though I want Demon Souls 2 it won't be.

I'd love for him to make just another hard as hell game like demon souls.
Guys a genius at whatever he does so this new game is in great hands and i'm sure sony will give him and FS all the support they need.

Is this why you weren't available to work on Dark Souls 2, miyazaki? You were working on the next gen Souls game? The next goty, gen 8 ps4 exclusive DemonsSouls 2 game?

Miyakazi said he was working on a light hearted game, this is likely Deathless from Square Enix
