PS3 Demon's Souls: Black Phantom Edition - Import Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Preorders are welcome for the European version of Demon's Souls - a title which Asian and North American gamers have been playing since 2009. Why the delay for Europe? Maybe demons are scary and only one continent at a time can handle them. The European edition is termed the "Black Phantom Edition" which includes the following:

» Demon's Soul game (PS3 games are region-free and playable anywhere)
» Demon's Souls Soundtrack CD
» Demon's Souls hardcover illustrations booklet
» Demon's Souls strategy guide

Everything's packaged in a slipcase that's similar in size and design to the North American deluxe pack that routinely sells for over $100 nowadays. The best price we got was $193 on Amazon during the 2009 holidays. Preorders are welcome to ship on or around June 25, 2010 at US$69.90 from NCS.

Demon's Souls Description
King Allant the XII, the last king of Boletaria, searched tirelessly to expand his might. The Nexus, a great ice shrine nestled in the mountains, bestowed the power of the souls onto him, bringing prosperity to his kingdom. Still unsated, he returned again to the Nexus, where he foolishly awakened the Old One from its eternal slumber. This long forgotten evil, now wrought upon Boletaria, plunged the realm into darkness and fog. A mighty demon horde poured into the kingdom, devouring the souls of men.

Champions from other realms learned of Boletaria's fate and sought to deliver the kingdom from evil; none would return from the cursed land. Called upon by a mysterious maiden in black, you go forth, the last hope for humanity in a place lost to demons and darkness.
