Folklore Demo On PAL PSN

folkloreimp-thumb.jpgIn honour of Folklore's playable debut at the Leipzig Games Convention, SCEE has gone ahead and put a demo of the game up on the Euro PlayStation Network so all PS3 owners can get a chance to put the game through its paces. There's a catch though. The demo will only be available through August 31st, after which it will be taken down from the store forever, which is a very long time. That, and it's for PAL territories only. I cry! The skinny:

Isabelle Tomatis, Marketing Manager PSN commented, "Folklore is a game we are really excited about and we recognise that not everyone can afford to get to Leipzig. PSN gives us a new way of talking to and rewarding our loyal fans so we have decided for the first time to get them on the inside track with the early release of this demo! We hope they enjoy it and look forward to the feedback".

Ooo, I've got some feedback - PAL PS3 owners can bite my ass. *runs off to pout*

Folklore is a skilfully-woven tapestry of beautifully-detailed, colourful landscapes and characters with a gripping supernatural storyline and intuitive, motion-sensitive game-play. Set in the Irish village of Doolin, players soon discover that the village hides a mysterious gateway to the Netherworld where it is rumoured that people can commune with the Dead...

Folklore has been created by Japan's Game Republic studios under the guidance of iconic Executive Producer Yoshiki Okamoto, the creative genius behind Resident Evilâ„¢, Devil May Cryâ„¢ and Genjiâ„¢. The demo will offer the chance to experience:

Ø Compelling mystery storyline - Folklore has two parallel yet distinct storylines running through the game - each with its own twists, turns and intrigue.

Ø Meet the Folks - Fight, capture and control the Folks, nightmarish creatures that inhabit the Netherworld, and use their incredible powers for yourself.

Ø Real-time combat with SIXAXIS™ functionality - players must latch onto Folks' souls and "reel" them in by flicking the controller at the correct moment.

Ø Amazing art-style inspired by Celtic and Western mythology - enter the world of Folklore and be transported to 7 fantastic realms of beautiful scenery, wondrous imagery and nightmarish creatures.

This exclusive demo will give PS3 and PSN fans a unique and intriguing look at one of the year's most original titles - so head over to PlayStation®Store with your PS3 and download the demo now - you don't want to miss out!
