In 2009, there was a small game called Demon’s Souls released on the PS3 as a collaboration between Sony and FromSoftware. The title ultimately was a flop in Japan, so much so that Sony decided to pass publishing duties in other regions to Atlus. However, it managed to garner a following, which lead to a spiritual successor, and over a decade later at the launch of the PS5, Demon’s Souls returned in a remake (though without the addition of a lot of rubber ducks), and it is meeting much the same acclaim as the original.
Sony released a new accolade spot for the remake which was done by Bluepoint Games with support from Sony Japan. Much like the critical reaction of the PS3 original, this one is garnering high praises, and considering just how little the game changed the core gameplay itself, that says a lot about how well the game aged.

Demon’s Souls is available now on PlayStation 5.
