- Today Atlus' Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari
has announced that Demon's Souls is officially released for Sony's PlayStation 3 console.
To quote: The Kingdom of Boletaria is now open to you, brave adventurers: Demon's Souls for PlayStation 3 is now available in retailers across North America.
For months leading up to its release, we've emphasized the game's difficulty level, striving in every instance not to misrepresent the game and to ensure that curious gamers are not caught off guard by the challenges that await them. That said, we don't want anyone to steer clear of the game because of what they've heard. If that is not the perfect segue into some starting tips for new heroes, then I don't know what is.
Mild Spoiler Alert:
Your first task in Demon's Souls, before even jumping into the game world, is to create your character. Demon's Souls offers 10 different player classes, each with different starting stats and equipment.
Unlike many RPGs, Demon's Souls does not punish players for choosing something out of line with their play style. Regardless of which class you pick, you'll be able to eventually do anything another class is more capable of at the start; all it takes is a little extra work.
