Update, 6:45 p.m. ET: Sony has confirmed that the Demon's Souls remake is a PS5 exclusive, releasing on November 12 alongside the new platform. During today's showcase, viewers noticed that the end of the new Demon's Souls trailer included a slide that said the game would also be coming to PC and would only be a PS5 console exclusive "for a limited time." In a statement given to Kotaku, a Sony representative says the slide was mistakenly included due to "human error."
Demon's Souls will also cost $69.99, following a trend of next-gen title price increases.
Our original story continues below.
Today at Sony's latest PlayStation 5 games showcase, we got an updated look at Bluepoint's Demon's Souls remake. Although we saw a gameplay demo for the remake, there's still no firm release date for the remake.
Today, we saw our first gameplay feature for the Demon's Souls remake. It was a predictably tough, brutal gameplay demo, in which our anonymous hero hacked and slashed their way through knights and skeletons alike, all climaxing in one tough boss fight. One thing of note was that the remake looks a lot quicker than the original Demon's Souls, almost akin to Dark Souls 3 in pace.
Bluepoint's Demon's Souls remake was long-rumored before it was finally revealed earlier this year. Bluepoint previously teased they were working on a "big" project all the way back in October 2019, before continuing to toy with fans throughout the rest of the year, and into January 2020.
But the ambitious remake was finally revealed earlier this year at the PlayStation 5 reveal event in June. If you weren't already aware, the Demon's Souls remake is a PS5 exclusive game, so don't expect it to come to Sony's current-gen machine.
There's a lot to look forward to with the Demon's Souls remake. It'll give Dark Souls and Bloodborne players the chance to experience an older game that they perhaps missed out on (I know I did), going back to FromSoftware's roots in making extremely challenging games. The Kingdom of Boletaria looks excellent in stunning HD visuals, and I can't wait to explore it later this year.
