Yup. Old school turned based. The character animations have been done by Akira Toriyama, which is why the hero looks like teenage Gohan

level 5 (WKC) were the co-developers of DQ8


Is WKC a dark and violent game? I have played only one Level 5 game and that was Rogue galaxy, which I enjoyed to the hilt.

Damn, should have ordered it when it was available on PA. It went out of stock in a few weeks and they haven't restocked it yet.

Gameplay trailer. After reading the review and watching the video of a fight with a comparatively small boss, it looks like it will be far more difficult than NG.

And the online features seems interesting.

Integrated into all of this,there's a unique system of online play, the game's most forward-thinking feature - though like everything in Demon's Souls, it's a double-edged sword. Assuming you have your body, which is an achievement in itself, you can call upon other players to help you, and they can join your game as blue phantoms to fight alongside you.

It's a way to even out the odds a little, or progress if you're completely stuck, though you often find yourself running after more experienced players as they rush through a section of the game they've seen 40 times. Players can also leave helpful messages for each other on the ground (“WATCH OUT FOR THE GIANT FALLING BOULDER”).

The downside? Playing the game online opens you up to invasion from Black Phantoms, other players who force their way into your game in order to assassinate you for your souls. You've no control over when this happens.

The best you can hope for, as an invaded player, is that your opponent isn't smart enough to stalk you, manipulating the level to make things harder for you before appearing at the most unwelcome possible moment to dispatch you, and instead rushes straight up to you in search of a quick kill. Then, at least, you have a chance of outmanoeuvring them in a face-to-face fight instead of panicking that every shadow behind every wall is your would-be assassin, armed to the teeth and with an enchanted arrow notched and aimed at your chest.

The prospect of playing as a Black Phantom yourself, of course, is seductive, once you have the ability and skill. But you always run the risk of being defeated. Besides, everything that you do online affects the world around you; defeating boss monsters and invading players shifts the World Tendency of a level towards white, whereas becoming a Black Phantom yourself shifts it towards black.

Black tendency makes a world's monsters more aggressive but increases the rewards for killing them, white tendency does the opposite, and both trigger events in the levels themselves, opening up previously locked doors or dropping in unique NPCs to help or hinder you. The tendency system is so complex that players haven't yet figured out all of its implications. Whichever way you choose to use Demon's Souls' online play, though, there are consequences in your own game.

The death system itself sounds far more punishing than resetting you back to a previous save...

RPG Fan Review 84/100

The reviews looks good and according to rpg fan the difficulty of the game is far higher than games like NG. Its a shame PA still hasn't restocked it.

PA might get a few copies soon, ncx will re stock this thursday. Its most likely the final print since they say that the game won't be available after that. Shame really, the game has consistently been in the top 40 japanese chartsa( very impressive for a hd console title). Ebay has some stock but they are charging a bomb :wallbash:
Let me know if you find it somewhere, I need one copy too.

Demon's Souls is absolutely compelling; dark, detailed, unforgiving, creatively cruel. It gets under your skin and becomes a personal obsession, daring you to probe further into its worlds, fall for more of its traps and overcome more of its impossible challenges; it slaps you in the face with your own incompetence and dares you to overcome it. You can learn to love Demon's Souls like few other games in the world. - Eurogamer Review (Score: 9/10)

It is just called the Asian version in PA with both English and Chinese language options available. Im not sure if it is Chinese.

Shame really, the game has consistently been in the top 40 japanese chartsa( very impressive for a hd console title). Ebay has some stock but they are charging a bomb :(

Ill definitely let you know if I find one. But if this is going to be the last print then maybe Sony decided to release a proper NA/European version?

the only problem is that neither SCEA or SCEE seem to be interested in bringing it into NA/pal territories. same case with afrika, aquanauts holiday etc.
if it does come here, it'll most likely be through another publisher. nippon ichi maybe?
something like this, another SCEJ developed title Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman!

The frame rate throughout the game seems pretty awful. And the enemy AI is not the brightest we've seen.


Hmmm... maybe I should take it out of my PA shopping cart. I still have "The Witcher" to get through.

Word. Seems to be a great game if you only own a PS3 and not any other console /PC(translated: 99.99% of the GI populace).

...and that's exactly what I've been thinking as well!

Why bother when there are many other titles I've still got to play. Persona 4, Star Ocean 4, Tales of Vesperia, inFamous, Prototype...
