FolksSoul Demo Set For June
April 25, 2007 - Everyone's been wondering where all the PS3 game demos are hiding. Our response is, you can't have demos when you don't have any games!
Sony Japan is actually making the best of a sparse summer PS3 lineup with demos for two of the system's biggest upcoming games. The first is Ninja Gaiden, whose demo was already announced for distribution via the Japanese PlayStation Store beginning on 4/27.
Today, Sony announced another demo. This one is for FolksSoul, the title formerly known by too many names to recall without doing some actual research. The Game Republic developed action adventure in which you gather fairies for use in battle will see a demo in early June, presumably prior to the final 6/21 release date.
Sony has also announced a tie-up with Japanese boy group Abingdon Boys School. A promotional video for the group, who will be performing the theme song for FolksSoul, will be available for download at the PlayStation Store on 5/21. Since it's against our policy to write at length about Japanese boy bands, we will end this article here.
