Okay, it's technically not Demon's Souls 2, but it's being made by the exact same developer (From Software) and this footage pretty much confirms that this is everything we loved about Demon's Souls but the name.

Seriously, check it out here.

HOLY CRAP, HUGE DRAGONS AND CRAZY ASS BOSSES OH GOD I'M EXCITED

Having recently finished DS, I did think there were plenty of areas to improve. Least of which being making the game challenging for my mage build. Here's hoping they build on from DS.

They changed the title because Sony owns the DS IP & project dark is multiplat.

I love how it's so obviously DS2. Even down to the text. Watch the name be like "Souls Demon's" or "Demon's Hearts" something.

Honestly, I think the online components in Demon's Souls are close to perfect, and adding something like mic support would only ruin the whole integrated-multiplayer thing they have going on. *A BLACK PHANTOM HAS INVADED YOUR WORLD!* "Oh ****! Man, this is creepy! I sure hope I can strategically find out where this invader is an thwart his attempts to take m-" "YOU DUDE! LOL, I'M A BLACK PHANTOM! WHAT'S UP? I'M A LEVEL 4- oh wait hang on. My mom wants me to get the groceries. BRB, BRO!" "..."

Indeed, that is pretty much Demon's Souls 2. They might as well call it that. It has the same art and gameplay style. Plus the same atmosphere.

Anyway, I couldn't be more excited! Demon's Souls was one of the greatest things to come out of this generation, so a sequel can only kick some major ***.

It's not a sequel to Demon's Souls, although it looks exactly like it. This is what the game industry calls, a spiritual succesor.

@TrueIori The way I understand things, Sony owns the name for Demon's Souls, and doesn't want Fromsoftware making a DS2 that's not way easier than the first, so FromSoftware is making "NOT"Demon's Souls 2.

What i was told by someone on Youtube.

Excellent news…

As long as the core game play and difficulty of DS will remain intact (or be as similar as technically possible), the devs can name this game whatever the hell they want. And as soon as I'm 100% confident that this game will indeed play like DS (the video provided, although very persuasive, did not grant me complete certainty that it will), I'll visit Amazon immediately.

ok this has immediately jumped to the top of my most anticipated list, well right behind bioshock infinite lol. but i really hope they dont change the gameplay and difficulty to try and appeal to the masses. i LOVED the first game.

I really don't blame them for making the game multiplat. I think it's a great move so they could get more money in their pocket and perhaps give us more than we've gotten for DS1. Like DLC or something.... and I wish we could do combos and etc and get a combo system.

uno-dos

For me, it has to be way better than the original. One can only hope the campfire with friends is indicating a good Co-op system. I bought DS expecting to be able to play with a friend, and instead they are only supposed to help you every now and then. I will keep an eye on this, but the overall package DS delivered was mediocre in my opinion. Graphics, Story, and Multiplayer all left a lot to be desired. The combat was good enough, but needs to be tweaked. And PLEASE no pitch black levels. it just isnt fun in any way.

I don't even have to think about it, I know it since that's how I played. Bosses were ridiculously easy (except 1). Like Naveed, I think there's plenty of room for improvement. And agree on the no pitch black levels too(or at least implement it better). A.I.'s greatest advantage over you shouldn't have to be darkness.

pretty much the DS IP is pretty much useless now, there aint no point in it if this game is coming out.. Thats like bungie making a halo game without the name halo but everything is down to a T. Sony wasted there money making this exclusive and the devs played em. Not mad that this is multiplat just whats the point in the end if they are gonna do this from the get go thats a waste of investment and time. Sony should be outraged imo.

They would probably call it Demons 2 or something like that.. I just hope they could make it a title where it could be more of them like a Final Fantasy Series. This game is going to rock.. its making me want Demon Souls all over again..
