Like a wandering soul leaving the Nexus and returning to the world, Demon’s Souls is coming back to stores with a big red stripe. A bloodstain left over by another player, perhaps? No, that’s just the PlayStation 3 Greatest Hits banner.
The Greatest Hits re-release of Demon’s Souls costs $29.99 and is shipping to stores soon. Untainted copies of Demon’s Souls box art are still in the wild.
Atlus rarely re-releases games as Greatest Hits. Even hits like Disgaea: Hour of Darkness and Odin Sphere were re-released late in the PlayStation 2’s life. Actually, I can’t think of any other Atlus game that reached Greatest Hits status this quickly.
