If you have a date with a random Blue Phantom this Valentine's Day weekend in Demon's Souls, a Kotaku game of the year contender, make sure you're up to speed with what's happening in the game during the holiday.

Last week, Atlus asked players to decide whether the normally red and pink holiday should be the subject of a Black World or White World Tendency, which alters the game's difficulty, drops and offers special appearance by certain demons and non-player characters. Fans voted and chose.... both.


It was a close enough race for Atlus to shift the world to both White and Black over the course of the coming week. Starting today, North American servers go white. Then, on Tuesday, they go black for the rest of the week.

Should be a good time for everyone who's not Tower Knight or Flamelurker in my new game plus.
