Demon’s Souls getting a sequel?

The PS3’s surprise hit Demon’s Souls may be getting a sequel. This year. Maybe.

Japanese outlet Dengeki Games’ podcast has made mention of an “unannounced sequel to a game which came out last year,” a game that is very difficult and one that has “interesting gameplay systems.” Sure, that’s far from a confirmation but it certainly sounds familiar. And developer From Software not making a sequel would in fact be more of a surprise than the opposite scenario.

1UP adds to the rumor, saying they’ve heard “a few rumblings” about another Demon’s Souls game from some sources of their own.

Whatever the game Dengeki is referring to turns out to be, it is said to be released this fall.
