PAL Demon’s Souls To Have Fan Made Strategy Guide

April 19, 2010

It was recently announced that Demon’s Souls was finally making its way to PAL territories and that it would be arriving in a fancy box, complete with the soundtrack, art book and strategy guide. Namco were keen to point out that these were not just the leftovers of the other releases and were in fact completely new. So new, in fact, that the strategy guide is completely different and has been written by fans rather than professional writers.

Not just any fans mind you; the guide has been written by Matthew Whisker and Wayne Gibson, who run the Demon’s Souls Wiki. Namco Bandai contacted them and requested they write the game because their Wiki is the best place for information on the game. They obviously accepted and the deal means they do it free of charge but people who buy the game get a free strategy guide.

This deal keeps all parties happy really. Namco are able to produce the guide for basically nothing, the Demon’s Souls community gets credit for their work and gamers get a free guide!

Namco To Publish Demon’s Souls In EU, Details Revealed Tomorrow

April 15, 2010

Demon’s Souls has received extremely positive reception by gamers and critics alike in the US and Japan. From Software, the developers, were surprised with how well it’s been doing commercially, as well as critically. However, it still hasn’t been released in Europe despite us European gamers really wanting it. Finally, EU gamers can rejoice as Namco Bandai will be publishing the game in Europe.

This is all good news so far but it gets better. Namco Bandai told VG247 that they “will be making a full announcement tomorrow.”. This means that we will probably find out the release date tomorrow as they can’t really show off new gameplay when the game is already out in other regions. Either way, I’m looking forward to finally getting to play it.
