FromSoftware‘s PlayStation 3-exclusive title was put next to the PlayStation 5-exclusive remake, developed by Bluepoint Games and Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Studio.
The comparison is a little off, as 2009’s original isn’t running on the PlayStation 3, but on an emulator (RPCS3), as this is how the game can be upscaled to 4K resolution, and this is also how Demon’s Souls can run at sixty frames per second in its originaé format. The reasoning behind this is that the comparison wanted to give the original a fair chance to compete against the Bluepoint-SIE Japan Studio remake.
„[…] Experience the original brutal challenge, completely remade from the ground up. All presented in stunning visual quality with enhanced performance, this is the world of Boletaria as you have never seen it before. […] Venture to the northern kingdom of Boletaria – a once prosperous land of knights, now beset with unspeakable creatures and ravenous demons. Meet strange characters, unhinged and twisted by the world around them, and unravel the unsettling story of Demon’s Souls.
[…] Perfect and hone your skills in combat – know when to push forward and when to bide your time, as with each missed swing and careless mistake, you risk losing the very souls you’ve worked so hard to collect. The rewards for slaying the strongest foes are immense though, and death does not mean the end – it’s just another state of being. […] Face the world’s greatest warriors in ferocious PvP combat with online invasions adding to the danger of your quest. Or play cooperatively by summoning allies to aid in your fight against the demons,” the game’s official description reads.
Demon’s Souls will be a PlayStation 5 launch title. Thus, look for it in the stores from November 12 in North America and November 19 in Europe, respectively. It will require 66 GB of free space on your SSD.
