If you remembered, Hidetaka Miyazaki didn't direct Dark Souls 2, he was apparently working in other project. Some might say that he's working in Demon Souls 2 (Jeff Cannata from TRS said it in his youtube video, while he and Dan was querying the From Software guy about Dark Souls 2)

Apparently this surfaced on NeoGAF (which in turn, taken from /v/, so take it with grain of salt), it's called Project Beast, and supposed to be project between Sony and From Software. I have no idea whether the image is doctored, but this definitely looks interesting.

Sure looks like it could be Demon's Souls to me, assuming those pictures are legit. Remember, Sony owns the Demon's Souls franchise...

Oh crap, i knew that this would be happening one day. I love the Souls series and played them all but i never enjoyed the PS3 as a console i must admit and the PS4 i traded in as well after a while. Just did not feel that thing, but a new Demons or even a new Miyazaki game exclusive to the PS4 will make me buy one again. Hope there´ll be a price drop by then, or i will buy one used. Oh my...slave to the game :P

Those screenshots looks super reminiscent of the Souls series. There's even a fog door. I know they've said Demon's Souls 2 isn't happening, but that doesn't mean we won't get it under another title. I can't wait to hear more about it.

I've been having a blast with Dark Souls 2 so far. In my opinion, It's just as good as the first one if not better, so the prospect of a next gen game is super exciting.

Dog Souls actually sounds kinda cool when I say it out loud.

Oh my god yes. Dark Souls 2 was a pretty big let-down.

You play as Snoop Dogg, and he's high all the time.

So...Beast Souls?

#14 Posted by ShaggE (7226 posts) -

Yeah, that has to be a Souls spinoff or something. It looks way too Souls-y to be anything else.

Well those screenshots certainly look Souls like to me. I probably shouldn't get too excited until we know if it's real but I can't help it. Praise The Sun!

Omg. Yes please. Please be Demon's Souls 2. The world needs it. Did anyone notice the mouse sitting on the right side of every picture though? What's up with that?

#23 Posted by MannyMAR (594 posts) -

Seems like they're going for a 1600's-1700's time period. Van Helsing demon slaying Souls game? Sign me the hell up!

#24 Posted by sub_o (951 posts) -

@j0lter: Some people speculated that these might be (hasty?) screen grabs from a trailer to be shown during the upcoming E3 or something.

#25 Posted by JackSukeru (6144 posts) -

That looks potentially sweet, I'm cautiously excited.

I hope the Sony rumor is false. I have no intention of getting a PS4.

#27 Posted by Seppli (11233 posts) -

Massive E3 spoiler. But hot damn, that's exactly looking like what I was hoping for would happen. Demon's Souls 2, or its spiritual successor, respectively a next gen-exclusive Souls game.

Extremely excited for this!

#28 Posted by MonkeyKing1969 (3792 posts) -

It looks like a...well not sure. I guess e3 might be interesting.

If it's Demons Souls 2 I'm all in. Enough of this baby Dark Souls business, kindling and other dumb nonsense, let's have a real Souls game again!

Let's have it be something else. We get enough sequels everywhere else.

Looks very, very nice. I believe.

Though not confirmed, obviously, it would be a very smart exclusive for Sony to get.

#32 Posted by Oldirtybearon (5290 posts) -

That definitely looks like a Souls game.

I wonder if they'll call it Demon's Souls 2 or if they'll call it something new? Undead Souls maybe?

As an aside, I'm getting a real Universal Monster Movie vibe from those screencaps. I can't quite place it, but something about the costume design, monster designs, and the setting makes me think of the 1930s/40s era of Dracula and Frankenstein in particular.

#33 Posted by Fredchuckdave (7417 posts) -

Van Helsing Souls?

#34 Edited by sub_o (951 posts) -

@oldirtybearon: They'd call it The Last Demon's Guardian Vita Agent Soul.

Just to block their ears from people who ask them about Demon's Souls 2, The Last Guardian, The Agent, and Vita.

I was half kidding but I wouldn't mind either way. I'm sure if it's actually Demon's Souls 2 and on new hardware it will be significantly different from the other souls games. At the same time if it's a cool new IP I'm down with that also - Dragons Dogma was a great new IP that I enjoyed a bunch, so I'm open to new experiences.

I opened this thread hoping it was a new Bloody Roar game.

Actually I have never played a Bloody Roar game.

Weird.

Well, judging by the clothing of the monsters, this seems a bit too modern to be set in the same style as Demon's / Dark Souls. Who knows, this might be a spiritual successor to... Otogi.

@j0lter: I think the mouse cursor was shopped in by /v/ as a joke. Don't read too much into that.

Either way, if Miyazaki is on this. Then so am I. DSII is awesome and all, but it was missing that little extra that truly made the first two games so unique.
