As part of its PlayStation 5 Showcase, Sony showed off new footage of Bluepoint Games’ Demon’s Souls PS5 remake. The game is also slated for release on PC, according to the trailer.
Revealed earlier this year at Sony’s June event, Demon’s Souls updates the PlayStation 3 cult classic in a similar way to Bluepoint’s Shadow of the Colossus remake, with a full visual overhaul but faithful controls and gameplay. The new footage shows the fight with Vanguard, an early in-game boss. Check out the full gameplay clip below:
The original Demon’s Souls, the predecessor to Dark Souls and Bloodborne, put together the punishing, rewarding formula that would make those games so popular with dedicated players. This Demon’s Souls PS5 remake, in addition to upgrading the visuals to take advantage of the PlayStation 5, is designed to take advantage of the new DualSense controller’s advanced haptic feedback.
There’s no word yet on whether Demon’s Souls will make the PlayStation 5’s November 12, 2020 release date, or any other details about the game’s release plans. The trailer included a “not available on other consoles for a limited time” statement along with its PC platform reveal, but no further information was given.
