Demon's Souls' spiritual sequel, Dark Souls, will be released on Xbox 360 as well as PS3, it's been confirmed.
The news comes in the extensive preview of the game, formerly Project Dark, from Japanese gaming mag Famitsu, which spilled forth a bunch of details earlier.
Demon's Souls was about as difficult a PS3 exclusive as you could find, and a Sony fan favourite. Sheer reader power led to it taking the No.10 spot in a recent CVG list of The Best PS3 games of all time.
According to Famitsu's write-up, Dark Souls' "overseas release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 is being handled by Namco Bandai".
However, the report clarifies that Japan will only get the PlayStation 3 version, published by Developer From Software itself. The title is noted as being due for release in the territory this year. No European or US release date is been given.
According to a translation from Andriasang, the "difficulty has been increased greatly over Demon's Souls" - which sound absolutely tortuous to us - and although the pair are related, there will be "no connection with Demon's Souls in terms of story or world".
