Oh come on, we need something more accurate than "late 2011." That just isn't good enough for the hardcore Demon's Souls fans!
Atlus has attached that rather vague "late 2011" launch date to Dark Souls , the spiritual successor to one of the best PlayStation 3 exclusive titles. But as a reader pointed out to us, GameFly has given the game an exact release date: September 30, 2011. Maybe the service knows something retailers don't, as Amazon and GameStop still have the placeholder date of December 31, 2011. Obviously, GameFly's date isn't the be-all, end-all and it's hardly a confirmation, but it's still encouraging. September 30 might not be a bad date; it would be available just before the typical October/November crunch, and right in between great titles like Resistance 3 (September 6), Batman: Arkham City (October 18), and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception (November 1).
At any rate, whenever it arrives, we're willing to bet that RPG fans everywhere will be paying attention.
