That's part of the story guy, the colourless fog started in the land of the giants and after the other races failed to repel the demons that archstone was broken to try and keep it contained there.

Except you were actually supposed to be able to go there but it was cut. Just like the final area of the game.


Never heard/read anything about that.

You do go to the final area of the game...

Do you have a source for this?


There is a developer interview with Miyazaki and someone else from FROM where they share that some of the resources intended for the 6th archstone were instead used for the Tomb of the Giants and Anor Londo in Dark Souls. There is a separate interview that also admits that they chose to cut some content in DeS, but that anything unused would probably find its way into another game somehow (ie, in Dark Souls). In addition, they hint that the area shown at the end of the DeS intro cinematic (as well as the boss creature) may have been from the designs of the Land of the Giants (but in a traditionally cagey manner, as Japanese developers tend to do).

It's very likely that anything left out of Dark Souls will just make its way into Dark Souls 2 as FROM doesn't like to waste good resources, but then the DLC apparently filled a lot of it in, so maybe there aren't many leftovers anymore?

Sorry that I can't find the links at the moment. Japanese sources are sometimes hard to find. I'll try to dig them up later if they're still posted.

Did some searching, and I at least found the interview discussing the removed/cut content of Dark Souls that later became the DLC (line 302 of http://pastebin.com/B2MYxP5Z).

Finding the early Demon's Souls interviews is proving harder. Guess it's been a while, but the Japanese sources buried in the bookmark folder are all dead now. All I found in the past half-hour was some of Kael's pastebin translations. Might have to look later. >_>;

That happens in the development of every game. I haven't played either Souls game enough yet to have an informed opinion on whether or not they were rushed, but just because they cut things doesn't mean that it was rushed. That's a normal part of game development.

Demon's Souls was unfinished. The finished version is called Dark Souls. It's just a matter of expectations. People were looking for Dark Souls to advance the series, but all the developer was doing was trying to get where they wanted Demon's Souls to be.

This is still a relatively low budget game, so obviously it's not going to have the same level of attention to level design that triple-A titles get.

The only reason Demon's Souls seems more complete is because people didn't realize how much got scrapped only to get put back in when they made Dark Souls.
