As we approach the release of another astonishing Bluepoint Games remasters, this time in the form of Demon’s souls, the team has shown off how they aren’t just remastering the game, but how they are bringing character creation into the next-generation of consoles.
As we quickly approach the November 12th release date of Demon’s Souls, Bluepoint Games and Sony Interactive Worldwide Studios has already taken some major steps to show how truthful their games actually are to the original.
In another major step to show Demon’s Souls fans what to expect; Bluepoint Games has revealed another aspect of the Soulsborne genre in the form of character creation. Unlike previous titles, Demon’s Souls will see itself step into the realm of realism instead of deformed figures and faces we often are happy to hide with equipment.
In a recent PlayStation Blog post, Gavin Moore, Creative Director for SIE World Wide Studios External Development’s has explained their approach to the game, “Rebuilding Demon’s Souls from the ground up has been a daunting task, not only because of the original title’s grand scope, but also because we know how much this game is beloved by PlayStation fans.
We love it, too, and that’s why we have gone to great lengths to recreate every feature of the original game on PS5, and that includes the character creator.”
The studio has remained true to the game’s core gameplay elements, appearance, and dark fantasy elements. One of the core improvements comes in the shape of overall graphics, character animations, and the atmosphere itself.
“The team is incredibly excited to see the amazing heroes (including the weird and wonderful) you will imagine. It’s important to remember: Demon’s Souls is a deep, rich single-player action-RPG with seamlessly integrated synchronous and asynchronous multiplayer elements,” Moore explains a bit more.

There are a few elements that still remain in the air, which includes a few elements that fans are wondering about such as PvP as well as black and white world tendencies, which allowed for specific encounters, including hidden bosses.
