From Software's game will be hitting retailers in North America this October 6th, with a Deluxe Edition packing goodies unveiled by publisher Atlus.
Also "participating retailers" will hand out a "free bonus art book" to pre-orders. Demon's Souls will come with an exclusive "150+ page strategy guide" if gamers go Deluxe, for $69.99.
The PS3 exclusive title is billed as the "ultimate hardcore RPG challenge", but American fans will have to wait till October to find that out for themselves, unless they import, which Atlus hopes they don't.
The game's US price tag is "less than it costs to import the game" claims Atlus marketing VP Tim Pivnicny, "we hope this is an offer patient Demon's Souls fans will be hard-pressed to resist."
Demon's Souls is going for $59.99, with a Deluxe Edition priced at $69.99 for October 6th. See the clip below for some gameplay action, in English!
