Namco Bandai has issued a press release earlier today, stating that it has acquired the rights to publish Demon’s Souls in PAL-regions. The game was originally released in Japan on February 5th 2009, with a release in the United States on October 6th. The PAL version is currently slated for June 25th, 2010.
The PAL-release will include several items not found in the original Japanese or US versions of the game and is set to be released under the name of ‘Black Phantom Edition’. While an artbook was already included with the game in the United States, European users will find a hardcover artbook containing different pieces included with their purchase. Furthermore, a new strategy guide as well as the soundtrack to the game are included.
