Demon’s Souls PS5 Remake Vs. Original (Gameplay Comparison)

The PS5 Demon’s Souls Remake shows a lengthy gameplay walkthrough of the Nexus tutorial, so we decided to see how the game looks compared to its 2009 original.

Demon’s Souls was first released for the PlayStation 3 in 2009, and while it has become something of a cult classic, the Dark Souls franchise that followed it has had a massive impact on the gaming landscape ever since. So it’s no surprise that the upcoming remake of Demon’s Souls, bound for the PlayStation 5 later this year, is one of the most anticipated launch titles for the console.

With the original Demon’s Souls being more than a decade old, there are a lot of possible improvements when bringing the game forward into the next generation. We fired up both the original Demon’s Souls to compare it to the PS5 remake, and the results are pretty impressive. Check out the video above to see both games running side by side through cutscenes, combat, and the tutorial boss fight.

We’ve got plenty of coverage of the PS5 and the next generation of consoles and more coming as we approach their launch this holiday season, so stay tuned to GameSpot.
