If you found Demon's Souls to be a hard game, you better strap yourself in an prepare for even more punishment when its spiritual successor comes around.

"You might laugh because you die so much." That's what From Software producer Hidetaka Miyazaki said about the game during a hands-off demonstration in Japan.

"There’s no safe place in Dark Souls," he added. "My goal is to kill all players who think there is a safe zone in Dark Souls."

From Software have said before that Dark Souls will be "significantly harder" than Demon's Souls, but there will also be more weapons and spells to choose from.

Some levels of the game will be littered with numerous traps, so you'll have to watch out for those in addition to the monstrosities that block your path.
