In an interesting post and video, Digital Foundry has provided an in-depth explanation of the reasons why “the time is right” for a Demon’s Souls remake for PlayStation 4.
According to Digital Foundry, “developed exclusively for PlayStation 3, Demon’s Souls is arguably the most overlooked game in the Souls series. It was a revelation in 2009 and also something of a mystery as players took their first uncertain steps into Boletaria.”
“From the gothic palace front to its dragon-besieged bridges, every area was built to create a unique sense of dread. The game’s status as being playable on just one console has only added to the game’s allure over the years.”
Definitely, “with Dark Souls getting imminent remaster treatment, Demon’s Souls will soon be the only Souls game that isn’t playable on PS4. And with online servers having shut down earlier this year – almost a decade on from release – the appeal of a modern-day remaster is undeniable.”
