While gamers in Japan have been able to pick up From Software's PlayStation 3-exclusive Demon's Souls from their local retailers for months, North American gamers have had to make a veritable deal with the devil (or pay importer premiums) to play the action role-playing game. That's going to change soon, as Atlus USA this weekend announced an October 6 North American release date for the game.
Atlus also revealed plans for a deluxe edition package of the game. For $69.99, the deluxe edition will include a strategy guide of more than 150 pages and will come in slipcase packaging. The standard edition of the game will cost $59.99, and gamers who preorder either version at participating retailers will receive an art book of concept sketches and other designs.
Set in the medieval kingdom of Boletaria, Demon's Souls calls upon gamers to cleanse the land of a demonic scourge unwittingly unleashed by the king in a misguided grab for power. Players will also be able to customize character skills and equipment to the task, relying on melee, projectile, and magic attacks to send the cursed creatures back from whence they came.
