No Demon's Souls 2 planned

It might happen "one day" though.

From Software currently has no plans to start work on a sequel to its critically acclaimed PlayStation 3 action RPG Demon's Souls, producer Takeshi Kajii has revealed.

Kajii told The Guardian, "At the moment, my answer is 'no sequel!'"

Dry your eyes though – he wouldn't rule out the prospect of revisiting the franchise at some point in the future.

"We have been encouraged by all the players, and this title is so well supported, and besides we like this title so much... Well, this is my own feeling, but I think one day we could bring you another Demon's Souls."

Demon's Souls was granted a belated European PlayStation 3 release earlier this year after terrorising Japanese and US gamers with its brutal, brilliant gameplay.

Eurogamer's Keza MacDonald dubbed it "deep, intriguingly disturbed and perversely rewarding," awarding it 9/10.

In other news, last week a resourceful Japanese gamer figured out a way of beating the game in under an hour. Elsewhere in the interview, director Hidetaka Miyazaki explained that it didn't bother him that gamers were using exploits.

"It was not intentional, and if we had discovered it during development we would have corrected it. However, now that some remain in the final game, I think that these exploits have become part of its flavour.

"Of course, this will be taken in consideration for future versions, especially those instances which are not exploits but bugs that prove to be a disadvantage for the players."
