E3 09: Demon’s Souls trailer is the f’in hotness

Damn, where has this game been? Why haven’t I been playing this yet? Well, I’ve seen the error of my ways, that’s for sure. Demons Souls, for the newly initiated like myself, this game is a hardcore RPG set in the post-apocalyptic kingdom of Boletaria, where beasts and monsters laid waste to the kingdom of warriors there.

If you’re familiar with the King’s Field series of games, this is the next one in their line of titles. While I haven’t touched the previoius titles, this one sounds a bit like Oblivion, in that open-ended RPG with intense customization. Hopefully without the horse armor, though. The game has fairly high rankings — in the high 80s from Degenki, and a 9/10 from Eurogamer.

Just from the trailer and these screens, though, they’ve managed to really capture that dark and desolate feel. I can’t wait to get my hands on this. In the meantime, check out their awesomely sexy trailer after the jump.
