Demon's Souls Remake Thread
We finally got some more info on the Demon's Souls Remake.

First up, we got confirmation that a couple armor sets and a weapon are exclusive to the Digital Deluxe Pre-Order and cannot be obtained in game (unless someone drops them for you, I guess?):

There are a bunch of spoilers in the articles explaining what's the same and what's different, so read them at your own risk:

In one of the interviews that released today, they said they didn't create the Land of the Giants. So we're still getting a broken archstone.

Today's gameplay trailer is the first thing I've seen that got me legitimately excited for the new consoles.

Looks amazing.

Demon Soul's atmosphere is pretty incredible. That's the number one thing they have to get right.

I'm a purist when it comes to remakes but I hope they made a few of the boss fights less gimmicky. Most Souls games have 1 or 2 gimmick bosses and to be honest most of them are kinda lame. There have been a few cool ones but they usually are kinda disappointing. The ones in Demon Souls are pretty much all bad imo so if they attempted to de-gimmick them and make them more traditional fights I wouldn't hate it.

I doubt you can really go away from the core mechanic of the bosses. Tweak, yes, but I doubt they make them straight up fights.

Yeah I saw in the video a quick shot of the fight against the Sky Mantra ray thing and it looked the same.

You gotta keep the core gimmick so that it's a true remake but you could add additional mechanics and phases I guess, in between the more gimmicky ones.

The atmosphere does look incredible though. Those shots of running through mines, hearing the pick axes in the distance, good stuff.

I see they clarified what Fractured Mode is (just a mirrored mode, whole world is flipped).

Any word on how they changed world tendency if any? If any mechanic in the game could use some TLC it was that. It's a very cool mechanic just really poorly implemented in the original.

Also WTF is up with that font they use for major notifications, does not look Souls' at all, way too clean and crisp.

Agreed, I also am not getting one at launch and DS is the only thing I'd be wanting to play day 1 anyway. I've played through the PS3 version several times though so I'll live until I can play the remake later.

I'm jelly of all the people who get to experience the game for the firs time though, especially this new version which looks so sick.

I do hope they made it to where you can’t just stay in one place and snipe the Adjucator.

I'm also interested in seeing the comparison between cinematic mode and performance mode.

The former being locked 4k/30fps and the latter being a dynamic 4k/60fps. I'm not sure if I've played a game with a variable resolution (or if I have, I just didn't notice )

The footage looks impressive, but I think it's lost something in not being so hazy.

I didn't even know what Flamelurker looked like, for example. I just knew it was fast and intimidating and on fire. Now it looks more like a generic video game boss with everything sharp and distinct.

There are some filter options to make it not as crisp and clean looking.
