Demon's Souls speed run amazes

Japanese player beats the unforgiving game in under an hour

PS3 exclusive dungeon crawler Demon's Souls has a reputation for being a tough game, but you wouldn't know from watching Japanese player "alternalw's" speed run below.

He/she laughs in the face of reputation, beating From Software's cruelly hard (for most people) RPG in just 54 minutes and 54 seconds.

You can watch the whole thing on alternalw's YouTube channel, which was spotted by Kotaku.

If you still haven't played the game, check out PSM3's review.

From Software's due to release a new PS3-exclusive title in Japan next year. Titled Project Dark, it's billed as a "dark fantasy" game that will appeal to fans of Demon's Souls.
