-From Software are huge fans of kings field.
-Sony Approached From Software to make a game for them.
-The director thinks it was a great timing when sony asked about the game. He was working on Armored Core game and his company was working on an rpg (Probably Enchanted Arms?). It was a while since they worked on a fantasy game (I think more of an action rpg game).
-From Software gets complete freedom to make the game.
-They get also lots of help from Sony when they need to.
-The main character is a From Software like character. They want to have their From Software flavour with the game and characters.
-The game doesn't necessary have to look amazing, they are more aiming for a good game with the right balance.
-You can swap items in realtime? (Not sure about that).
-They want the game to look very rpg like and it has elements to remind you from older rpgs.
-They had of like a trial and error with the balance of the game many times.
-They are not planning on making the game too hard like other action rpg games.

In this week's issue of Weekly Famitsu magazine, Sony Computer Entertainment made the first announcement of Demon's Souls, a new "dark fantasy" action RPG under development by Armored Core makers From Software. The game, which will be playable at the Tokyo Game Show next week, is due out for the PlayStation 3 next year in Japan.

While details are still scant on Demon's Soul, SCE Japan producer Takeshi Kajii described the game to Famitsu as a spiritual successor to King's Field, the From-developed first-person RPG that first hit it big on the original PlayStation. "I am a fan of From Software, but naturally that also means there are parts of their games I'm not satisfied with, too," he said. "If this was a new King's Field game, there would be areas we wouldn't be able to touch since they're part of the series; working together like this, we can try to make something really new."

Demon's Souls takes place in the kingdom of Boletaria, currently enshrouded in a deep fog thanks to its king inadvertently unleashing an ancient monster from his slumber. You, a nameless hero who you're free to customize Elder Scrolls-style, must penetrate into Boletaria and save the kingdom -- but like many US RPGs these days, the game is slated to be extremely open-ended. "You get only the barest minimum of a goal, and there's nothing forcing you to do anything in the game," Kajii said. "People say to you 'Save the world,' but you can ignore them and keep going if you like."

The way Kajii and From Software director Hidetaka Miyazaki described it, Demon's Souls is a bit of a hybrid -- an RPG that uses the PS3's hardware to the hilt while still retaining the challenge and exploration of traditional role-players. Your hero can use a wide variety of weapons, each of which has different attacks and animations depending on how skillful you are or whether you're using one hand or two, and the game's physics system places natural limits on what's possible in any given tactical situation. "We gave a lot of thought to how to make the fun and charms of a classic RPG interesting all over again with the latest technology at hand," Miyazaki noted. "We figured that doing the things that previous hardware ignored -- having long weapons bump into walls, lighting the area in realtime with the torch in your hand -- would make the game that much more fun. We're taking the things you did through menus in Wizardry and letting you carry them out in real life." (Miyazaki also hinted that while Demon's Souls won't have multiplayer, he would still like to "find a way to use the Internet to make the single-player mode more interesting.")

Evil is Evil. Lesser, greater, middling...makes no difference. The degree is arbitrary.

The definition's blurred. If I'm to choose between one evil and another, I'd rather not choose at all.

ok, but the English language is still available. So it shouldn't be far from a NA release unless they don't plan to do that.

First two reveiws-

Famistu- 29/40 (9, 7, 7, 6)
Dengeki- 350/400 (95, 85, 85, 85)

Source

Well that seems pretty good to me. I wouldn't care about Famistu reveiws after they gave Last remnant 38/40, IU 32 and WKC 28. They are going in the route of SE fanboys (first time I heard of one). But these reviews are still better than what WKC received and it is the highest selling jrpg this generation.

And looking at PA, the Asian version of the game has passed even KZ2 as the bestseller, so thats some achievement.

Not much info is available on it. Famistu gave it 28/40 but the western previews have so far been positive. Check out the 1up preview posted in the WKC thread to get a better idea about the game.

Well, the low scores for DS are because of its insane difficulty and the inability to pause during the game.

There is no low "scores" for DS. The only low score is from Famistu and it is still higher than WKC.

Well, according to a couple of hands-on reviews, the game is exceedingly difficult, which will lead to you dying often.

Yeah, hands on hasn't been positive and claims poor frame rates. But since the game is being made by Sony, it is probably an extremely old build which everyone tried out and none of these previews were from reliable sites. 7.25 from famistu and 8.75 from Dengeki is definitely good scores for non-SE rpgs.

Anyway, the game is selling a lot right now. Lets hope the WKC and DS sales will encourage SE to bring SO4 to the PS3.

Lets see how this turns out to be. To tell the truth, I am enjoying DQ 8 so much that I don't know if I will be able to go back to dark and violent RPGs any time soon.

DQ8 = Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of a cursed King.

It happens to be the fastest selling PS2 game ever, with 3,000,000 (yes, these zeroes are real) copies sold in the very first week.
