It's almost certainly not fake, but whether it actually has anything to do with Souls (or even From) is still questionable. The fog/light/mist gate is certainly a pretty Souls-y detail, though.

Some are speculating that it's actually related to whatever this Square Enix game is.

It does look Souls-y, and we know that Miyazaki and a lot of other staff from Dark Souls 1 did not work on the sequel. Plus, who would be so cruel to photoshop a From Software logo over another game? I don't want to get my hopes up too much, but damn it would be cool if this ends up being real.

And now it doesn't look like this is the case. The game apparently already came out. It was an iOS game.

I'm not saying this makes it related to Demon's Souls, but Beast was a great name to call the project.

Oh, I really really hope this is true. My body is ready for anything from From Software. With From Software being bought out by Kadokawa Corporation, I am wondering if Sony are kicking themselves for not buying From Software or at the very least striking a deal with them to make the Souls series a Playstation exclusive. I guess in the end it does not really matter if this new game ends up being a PS4 exclusive. Perhaps this will be the PS4's first must have exclusive assuming that it turns out as good as any of the Soul games.

It's purportedly the same team from Demon's, which was also a From/Sony joint. Regardless of whether it's in canon, I'm sold.

Except I don't have a ps4...

There are lots of subtle confirmations coming from a lot of different places. For example, a Sony employee who posts on NeoGaf has been using the word 'Beast' a lot in the last year or so. Saying that the next From game is going to be a whole different beast, an upcoming reveal will be a beast, etc. A lot of reporters are saying it looks legit but aren't posting stories about it, which seems to indicate that they're under NDAs.

Unused code from Demon's Souls showed beast people behind the sixth archstone, so maybe they're using some of those ideas. Plus, there's obviously a fog door in one of the Project Beast pictures. I'm really looking forward to seeing the trailer for this. Hopefully they show the gameplay a bit and show how it's going to be different. Even if it's just a new Souls style game on next gen hardware I'll be happy, since the Dark Souls games were clearly pushing the PS3 as far as it could go.

I am a little annoyed that some people are using this as a way to put Dark Souls II down, saying that it was a stopgap and that it was made by a B-team. DS II did a ton to improve the gameplay and online interaction, and I can't point to a single area of the game that isn't great. It lost the connectedness from Dark Souls and it's not the massive leap that some people were hoping for, but it's awesome and I hope that people don't skip it in favor of waiting for Beast Souls.

Hmm, that makes sense. Dark Souls II is a good game, but it feels a bit hollow.

I haven't been able to get into either Dark or Demon's Souls, maybe this one will finally click for me.

Shadow Tower is the game that people who gave up on it claimed Dark Souls was.

So that NeoGaf thread has a lot of static to wade through, but it sounds like this has pretty much been confirmed as legit?

The original Shadow Tower is terrifying and impenetrable, but Shadow Tower: Abyss is actually very accessible (as long as you're down with item degradation, and not hoovering up every piece of loot you find). It's even got modern first-person camera analog controls!

I couldn't get in to King's Field IV, but old From games are super fun to watch on in Let's Play form.

I told myself that I'd hold out on a PS4 until there was a From/Souls game, but it looks like that delay tactic didn't buy me much time.

Literally the only thing that would make me want a new gen console is Souls game exclusivity, at this point.

At first I was bummed it looked exactly like just another Souls game, which are starting to lose their luster a bit.

Then I saw the whip and I'm praying like hell this is secretly From Software making a Castlevania. We need a new good Castlevania game more than we need another Souls title.

Sure it looks like *Souls, but can you blame From for wanting to capitalize on their (by now) well-known house style?

The gothic setting of Project Beast is perfect match for From's dark deserted worlds. I got a Castlevania vibe more than a Ghouls n Ghosts vibe, but either way I'm super excited.

**
I agree with Patrick, Dark Souls II is great game. My second favorite of the series, Demon's being my favorite.

That back dash into shotgun blast looked like something out of a mecha movie in the way the character moved. That is a good thing.

It looks cool, but the blood covered hero looks like a killer from a slasher movie who fell into a jelly factory.
