Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today revealed that Demon’s Soulsâ„¢, a groundbreaking action RPG experience for PLAYSTATIONÂ®3 system, is to become the newest entry in the Atlus Spoils fan appreciation program. In addition to the standard version of the game, which now features new North-American exclusive box art, there will also be a deluxe edition.

Moreover, fans who pre-order either version will receive a free bonus art book with designs and concept sketches from the world of Demon’s Souls (only at participating retailers, while supplies last).
