A demonic task.

Demon’s Souls, a launch title for the PlayStation 5, is a remake of the cult classic for the PS3 that brings all the good stuff from the original while adding a few modern tweaks. Are Demon’s Souls’ PS5 trophies a worthy update, however?

As might be painfully obvious to anyone whose familiar with Soulsborne, getting full completion in Dark Souls on PS5 is going to be quite the tall order. Not only is the game traditionally difficult, but there are also a lot of secret sidequests that aren’t signposted, meaning that you’re going to have to crack out some guides.

Here are all of the trophies for Demon’s Souls on PS5, as well as long it will take you to reach that coveted Platinum trophy.

Number of trophies: 37

Time to Platinum: 50 hours

So, the most important thing to note here: Demon’s Souls is hard. A game that teaches you per death, it’s not an experience that most newcomers will be able to immediately pick up and be good at, so expect a steep learning curve.

A lot of the trophies for the game are for the boss fights, which are regarded as some of the trickiest fights in all of gaming. Trophies like Brother-in-Arms and Fists of Legend ask you to beat bosses with specific weapons, while One Shall Stand and Not Fooled are two boss-centric trophies that require you to do very specific, harder things. On top of all that, due to you needing to collect rings, spells, and miracles for the Saint’s Trophy, Sage’s Trophy and King of Rings trophy, we expect it will take you at least 50 hours for full Platinum completion of the game.

An interesting sidenote about these trophies: there’s actually one less trophy for Demon’s Souls on PS5 than the PS3 original.
