Demon's Souls Online Server Support Extended Into 2012

Atlus has announced that it's extending the online lifespan of the hard as nails Demon's Souls online server support, enabling players to continue utilising the game's innovative network features, such as leaving hints for other players, reviving fellow adventurers and replaying the death scenes of unfortunate souls. You can even enter another player's game and wreak havoc, which just isn't cricket, if you ask us.
"While it comes at significant cost to us and although it has been over two years since the game revolutionised the notion of multiplayer and online functionality in an RPG," commented Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales at Atlus, "Our commitment to the game and the fans that turned it into an incredible success remains as strong as ever. While the reality is that one day the servers will ultimately close due to operation and maintenance costs, that day is not today, nor will it be this year."
Demon's Souls is currently available for an RRP of $19.99, making it one hell of a bargain, for one hell of a game, that will send you to hell and back again. Spiritual successor Dark Souls is also out next month.
