Demon's Souls is the first installment in the Souls series of games created by game director Hidetaka Miyazaki, and was produced under supervision by Sony's Japan Studio. Set in a dark fantasy world, players take control of a hero who has journeyed to the fictional kingdom of Boletaria, which is being ravaged by a cursed fog that brings forth demons who feast on the souls of mortals. The gameplay involves a character-creation system and emphasizes gathering loot through combat with enemies in a non-linear series of varied locations, with a heavy emphasis on challenging combat. It has a unique online multiplayer system integrated into the single-player where players can leave useful messages and warnings for other players' single-player game worlds, as well as joining other players in their world to assist and/or kill them.

Known Issues

PSN versions do not work

The PARAM.SFO file in the PSN versions are the same as the ones used in the Blu-ray version. Hence, the emulator identifies the games as Blu-rays and tries to install it as such. Due to this, the PSN versions only display a blackscreen.

Missing Geometry

There are certain situations when the game doesn't send geometry to be renderer, see issue 4302 for more details

Special Notes

60 FPS Patch exists for the title. Note that the patch accelerates game by 2x.
