I was one of the rare King's Field fans back when, so I'll be watching for this one.

I was hoping the PSP remakes of the King's Field games would get a US version but no luck so far.


I couldn't agree more. I loved Kings field, but have given up hope the PSP remakes will be coming stateside. I am not getting a warm feeling that this will see a US release so I just bit the bullet and bought Demons Souls from yesasia yesterday. They listed it in stock, but it will not ship for a month (then a week for delivery).

Have any CAGs actually imported the game yet?

I have. It's similar to King's Field, but moreso the Shadow Tower series.

I just ordered from Play-Asia.com, it came to $67 shipped via 5-10 day shipping speed, pretty good knowing this game probably wont come to the US, Asian version is full english (Text, voice, menu), Online mode is compatible in all regions (Mean US players can play with people in Japan and Korea)

If they even have english voices already done they would be stupid not to do some kind of US release. Even if they only print 10K copies and don't advertise much, I think the fact that it is an RPG will move enough units to justify getting a rating and printing the discs. They should put it out sometime during the summer, after InFamous just so they can have exclusives coming out throughout the year.

Why even wait that long? If you want it now, there's no reason to wait since this game has 100% english support. The ONLY thing that's not in english is the instruction booklet. Even then you get an insert that's in english which tells you the important features within the game. Also there's a Demon's Souls wiki out there.

I ordered it on the 14th from play-asia, I don't know when they're going to get more stock in since it's still back ordered. I'm thinking I won't see it till late April-May. Hoping I'm wrong.

Argh....anyone else order this from Play-Asia? I ordered it on the 14th of this month and its status got updated to back ordered the following day. I've been waiting since then and I'm just curious how long it takes these bastards to restock?

Canceled my Play-Asia order for the asian version since people who ordered in Feb, are still on Backordered.

I ordered it from NCSX on 3/26 (Click details on the product and they list in most cases the EXACT day they expect to receive more of that item, so I placed an odered and it shipped a matter of hours later (Ships from NY), I received it today, and cant wait to try it out!

I managed to get two of these. One to play and one to keep. I have the feeling that this game is going to be rare. Hopefully ill get a chance to try it out sometime soon but Killzone 2 has me hooked

Looks like a great game but not enough for me to spend almost 70 dollars. It costs too much for a game that has not been rated from American game critics like gamespot or GT. Seems risky to me. Also anyone notice the health, mana, & stamina bar looks like its from oblivion?

Gave up Eternal Sonata so I could play this one... have to say I'm loving it!! (Ba da ba ba ba) Not quite sure what I'm doing now, but it's feels rewarding once you learn the system better. Kinda like how Etrian Odyssey felt once you got into it. :3

Ha, so I finally beat 1-2 (Tower Knight)!! Instead of trying to fight my way through everyone to get to the actual boss, I ran through most everyone. When the TK finally came down, the fog lifted and they all came running after me!! lol Great game :).

You can buy the Korean version too. It has full English support just like the Asian version. Might run a tad cheaper too.

I think I'm going to give in and put an order in for this. Since nowhere has it in stock right now, that means it won't show up until the semester is over. 8-)

Wow, that Eurogamer review might be the first review I have ever read and thought Fuck I Must buy this game. I won't have any time to play it till the fall at earliest, so hopefully a US version will be announced by then, or the asian one will be more available/cheaper.

Sony should post that review on the wall at E3 and announce they are releasing the game in the US, the localization is already done, they can even just do it as a $40 game on PSN, Gamestop/walmart won't care about not having this on the shelves.

For what it's worth, Demon's Souls also got a very positive write-up in the latest issue of Play magazine. The only potential drawback, depending on your point-of-view, is that's is supposedly pretty challenging.
