228w ago - Today Atlus' Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced that Demon's Souls pre-order PS3 bonus has expanded, and now includes a full soundtrack.
To quote: As you may already know, we're offering fans who pre-order either version of the game (Standard or Deluxe, at participating retailers only) a full-color, 40-page art book featuring sketches, designs, and renders that wonderfully show off the game's gritty medieval aesthetic.
On its own, this is a pretty nice bonus (says the publisher offering it), considering it is being thrown in at no additional cost to the customer, but we've recently decided to take things a step further.
In addition to the art book, fans who pre-order will now ALSO receive the game's FULL soundtrack CD. That's right, we're going to throw 24 tracks (about 71 minutes) of music into the pre-order bonus as well. And if you've ever heard the game in action, you likely know that the music is haunting, atmospheric, sweeping, and orchestral.
Don't worry, people who have already pre-ordered: the music disc is secured on the back inside cover of the art book, so you won't miss out!
So, whether you reserve (at participating retailers) the Standard edition of the game, which would net you the game, art...
