US Demon's Souls servers guaranteed

Atlus promises support until March 2011.

If you're one of the many who imported the North American release of the From's modern classic Demon's Souls, you'll be happy to know that Atlus is guaranteeing that servers will stay switched on until at least March 2011.

The PS3 exclusive is essentially a single-player action-RPG, but it has many unusual online features and does allow players to invade each others' games to co-operate with - or attack - each other.

The servers also have a World Tendency that varies between black and white, making the game more or less difficult and unlocking secrets.

To celebrate its announcement, Atlus is setting the servers to Pure White for two weeks, which will make the game easier for newcomers and allow veterans to reach new areas and items.

Demon's Souls is now available in Europe too, following a release by Namco Bandai last month. It's a must-play - and Keza's rare interview with director Hidetaka Miyazaki, covering the making of the game, is a must-read.
