Demon’s Souls on PS5 Completed In Less Than 20 Minutes by Speedrunner

A speedrunner managed to complete the remake of the dark action role-playing game Demon’s Souls for PS5 in less than 20 minutes. The Youtube user Distortion2 made use of various tricks.


One of the most interesting launch titles for the PlayStation 5 is the remake of the classic action role-playing game Demon’s Souls.

Due to a locked door, which could not be found in the original title from 2009, the remake has already provided plenty of talking points in the past few days. After the mystery of the locked door was solved, we received a video this week in which the Youtube user and speedrunner Distortion2 tried to complete the fantasy adventure Demon’s Souls as quickly as possible.

As part of its best run, Distortion2 only needed 19 minutes to master the remake of Demon’s Souls and to see the credits. It goes without saying that the speedrunner used certain tricks to skip a large part of the game and save time.

If you are interested in the tricks of the speedrunner, you will find two videos at the bottom of this article, in which both skipping areas and the 19-minute run are presented. The remake of Demon’s Souls is available exclusively for the PS5 and is based largely on the original title from FromSoftware.

Smaller adjustments were only made to the camera work and the medicinal herb system.
