Demon's Souls celebrates its second anniversary today photo



When Demon's Souls released two years ago, it literally came out of nowhere. It was, and still is, one of the most refreshing, difficult and satisfying RPG experiences to date. Its surprise success proved that you don't always need big-budget marketing to sell a fantastic game and that a game could sell almost by word-of-mouth alone.

In addition to extending the servers for the game into 2012, Atlus is also celebrating the second anniversary of Demon's Souls by shifting the world tendency to all-white, the game's easiest difficulty setting, from today until October 17th. After that, the tendency will be all-black, the game's most difficult setting, until the end of the month. So if Dark Souls keeps kicking your ass, why not hop on Demon's Souls to see where it all started?
