Do you live in Europe? Are you a fan of action RPG’s? Do you enjoy punishing yourself with extremely challenging gameplay? If you answered yes to all of the above, you might want to read on because Namco Bandai have revealed that they have partnered with SCE Japan to bring the super-hardcore, but critically acclaimed RPG, Demon’s Souls to PAL territories.
The PS3-exclusive action RPG is due to hit European store shelves on June 25th, and will be available in an Europe-only exclusive Black Phantom Edition.
The Black Phantom Edition bundles a soundtrack CD, a new art-book and brand new strategy guide as well a copy of the game. You can take a peek at the limited edition set below.
Olivier Comte, Vice President of publishing at Namco Bandai had this to say:
“We’re very pleased to be working with SCEI to bring the fantastic Demon’s Souls to gamers outside of Japan and North America. The game is exactly the kind of quality experience with which we are continuing to grow the Namco Bandai Games portfolio of titles, and we will be working hard to ensure it’s at least as much of a success in our markets as it has already proven to be elsewhere.”
As a gamer based in England, it’s great to hear that Demon’s Souls is finally getting a release over here. I’ve been interested in checking out the title since it was released in North America way back in October. The addition of a limited edition bundle only sweetens the deal.
