Bluepoint Games’ Demon’s Souls, a remake of the beloved FromSoftware classic, was recently rated for the PS5 in South Korea and Japan. This could indicate a release soon but given that the PS5 is out this holiday season, will it join the console’s launch line-up? According to Kinda Funny co-host Imran Khan, also formerly a senior editor at Game Informer, it’s possible.

Replying to a Twitter user about it being a launch title, especially with the recent rating, Khan said, “I’d doubt it if only for COVID reasons but I don’t think it’s off the table.” Interestingly, he added that, “As far as I know, they had always been targeting launch/launch window.” Plans could change, especially given everything that’s happened this year, but there could be a chance.

Neither Sony nor Bluepoint Games offered any kind of release window with the remake’s reveal. However, the launch rumors are interesting when you consider recent comments by Eric Lempel, Sony Interactive Entertainment SVP and head of global marketing. He told GamesIndustry.biz that the PS5 launch window line-up is “best line-up that we’ve ever seen in the history of PlayStation.” Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Astro’s Playroom, Godfall, and Bugsnax make for a pretty strong line-up, but Demon’s Souls would truly complete it.

We’ll have to wait for more details in the coming months. In the meantime, you can read about how Bluepoint Games is using the PS5’s DualSense controller to make the combat feel “grittier, darker, and deadlier.”
