Just last week we reported on the discovery of a mysteriously locked door in the Demon's Souls remake that couldn't be found in the original PlayStation 3 version.

The mystery of the locked door stands solved faster than anticipated.

In an interview with The Washington Post, creative director Gavin Moore said that while Bluepoint did make some changes to the original, when it comes to adding an easy difficulty, "it wasn't our place - merely being custodians for this incredible game - to add something that would fundamentally alter its balance".

Bluepoint presented a similar solution to a mystery in its remake of Shadow of the Colossus when players needed to gather 79 Ceramic Coins to access that game's Easter egg. He got the credit for being the first person to open the door after he shared the following image on Twitter.

Finally, players witnessed what was available on the other side.

If you are playing the game and intend to solve this on your own, this is where you stop reading. The secret to open it lay with another fresh addition in this remake: the ceramic coins.

However, it seems that players will able to complete the trade with only 26 coins.

So, what sort of glorious treasures lie beyond the mysteriously locked door? As it turns out, players need to give somewhere around 30 Ceramic Coins to in-game trader Sparkly the Crow, which will earn them a Rusted Key. This guide will show you exactly how to open the secret new door in Demon's Souls on PS5 and how to get the Penetrator armor set.

Moore previously told The Washington Post that although Demon's Souls is a challenging game, he believes it's "actually very fair". Until then, happy slaying in Boletaria.
