From Software is pushing Demon’s Souls by using “edgy” English and they’re doing a much better job than Global A. Demon’s Souls isn’t a story driven game so I suppose Japanese gamers don’t care about the creation of souls pretext. Seeing a dragon carrying a corpse and a lone warrior against a swarm of enemies describes the game enough.
When I played Demon’s Souls all of the voiceovers were in English too which was somewhat surprising. Sure, Capcom has done this in the past for games guaranteed to get an international release, but From Software? Is Sony or someone else really thinking about bringing Demon’s Souls over here?
