Pre-order Demonic Archive now


Demon's Souls may have begun as an obscure Japanese action RPG with some inventive online features. But it has since grown into a cult classic, most notable perhaps for heralding the arrival of Hidetaka Miyazaki, a generational talent that would reshape the potential of the video game in the way Tolkien exploded the scope of what was deemed possible in fantasy literature.

Tune & Fairweather is excited to honour this classic game by publishing the most comprehensive excavation of Demon's Souls' lore and universe yet released.

Introducing... Demonic Archive: The Mythology of Demon's Souls.

  • What happened to King Allant that would motivate him to kickstart the apocalypse?
  • Where exactly is the Nexus situated within Demon's Souls' world?
  • What secrets lie beyond the sixth Archstone fallen to ruin and bereft of light?

Get the answers to these questions, and many more, in Demonic Archive. The most exhaustive dissection of Demon's Souls' lore in existence. Authored by Lokey, the scholar behind Abyssal Archive: The Mythology of Dark Souls.

Now available in two stunning editions – a standard edition with board-reinforced die-cut slipcase and the limited Armored Edition featuring a brushed-steel slipcase, which only be available for pre-order until September 30th, 2023.

A Benefactor Tier is also available for a limited time, featuring the Armored Edition of Demonic Archive plus a special name credit in both the physical and digital versions of the book.

We expect to have this book printed by the end of 2023 and arriving to collectors early next year.

Reserve your first-edition copy now... "so the world might be mended."
