Players got busy with the first challenge they had found. Bluepoint Games is well known for making remakes interesting by adding secrets and Easter eggs, like they had done with Shadow of the Colossus.

How to open the secret door in Demon’s Souls?

If you are playing the game and intend to solve this on your own, this is where you stop reading.

The door lies beyond an illusory wall in Boletaria world 1-3 and there’s no key anywhere nearby to open it. The secret to open it lay with another fresh addition in this remake: the ceramic coins. These coins are hidden around the game in two rarities:  Pure White or Pure Black. The design on the coins is similar to that on the door.

All players have to do is trade these coins for a Rusty Key with Sparkly the Crow, an item trader in Shrine of Storms. It took Distortion2 26 coins to get the key and open the door.

Beyond the door lies an empty verandah with a corpse. This corpse is wearing the full Penetrator armor set and sword, which is the actual reward. In fact, Bluepoint Games tweeted an image of the verandah to the Demon’s Souls streamers.
