This Demonic Archive Is A Demon's Souls Treasure Trove

Lore and preorder.


From Software's Souls series has some of the finest lore in video games, and while the numerous characters, stories, and worlds have been dissected for years in robust videos and podcasts, nothing compares to a good book. For anyone looking to dive into the legends of Demon's Souls, the Demonic Archive from Tune & Fairweather looks like a classy way to spend an evening reading up on the secrets of the Sixth Archstone, the fall of King Allant, and the mysteries of the Nexus.

Available for preorder and priced at $87, Demonic Archive: The Mythology of Demon's Souls is a comprehensive excavation of the game's lore and universe, and is authored by Lokey, the scholar behind Abyssal Archive: The Mythology of Dark Souls. Two versions of the book will be available, a standard edition with a board-reinforced die-cut slipcase, and the Armored Edition that features a brushed-steel slipcase, with shipping expected to begin in 2024.

Internally, both editions are 212-page books using a sturdy 130gsm Munken Pure uncoated design paper, have dozens of illustrations, and have a screen-printed 'Vanguard Demon' cover design across the front cover, spine, and reverse. A preorder bonus includes a free digital edition of the book, if you order any of the physical editions before September 30. Books like these usually make for great gifts, and if you have a From Software fan in your life, an elegant tome of Demon's Souls lore makes for a very thoughtful present.

For more book gift ideas, this Legend of Zelda manga collection is pretty cheap at Amazon and volume 2 of the Elden Ring official strategy guide is now available for preorder.
