Demon’s Souls PS5 Mystery Door Has Been Solved | IGN

Well, that was fast. After reports emerged that there is a mysterious door in the Demon’s Souls PS5 remake that didn’t exist in the original, streamer Distortion2 unlocked the mysterious gate and uncovered the hidden mysteries within.

Soon after the release of Demon’s Souls on PS5, players soon discovered a mysterious door in the first world that didn’t exist in the original PlayStation 3 version. A mystery was set into motion, especially since developer Bluepoint is known for adding mysteries into its remakes as it did with Shadow of the Colossus.

This door was hidden behind an illusory wall in Boletaria world 1-3. However, there didn’t appear to be any kind of key nearby that could unlock it. The race to open the door was on.

As it turns out, the solution to opening the door lay with one of the new items added to the Demon’s Souls remake, the Ceramic Coin. These Coins were hidden across different Fractured Worlds with either Pure White or Pure Black tendency. The design on the coin matched the design on the mysterious door, which is why it seemed smart to start collecting these coins.

And that proved to be the answer! Distortion2, who was the first to point out the importance of the Ceramic Coin, traded in 30 coins to Sparkly the Crow, an item trader in Shrine of Storms, and received in return a Rusted Key.

So what was behind the door? A veranda with a corpse, but on that corpse is a full Penetrator armor set and sword.

Bluepoint actually showed off the secret veranda area in a tweet it sent out to prominent Demon’s Souls streamers. The developers captioned the postcard style image with “Wish you were here!” a cheeky message in hindsight.

The coins were also a good lede because the Shadow of the Colossus remake secret also relied on coins. Except instead of 30, players needed 79 hidden coins to access the easter egg Bluepoint added.
