  • FE1 is getting a surprise localisation for the 30th anniversary. Limited availability, though
  • Demon’s Souls got a new gameplay trailer, looks a little bit more grim. They also confirmed they’ll have a filter to make it look more like the old game’s desolate feel, so it’s not just me that thinks that’s a thing. But man, the game is real pretty. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iiDpDKGhGps
