Downloading right now, I didn't know there was a demo. I never got into any "Souls like" game. FromSoftware set the bar too high. Scarlet and Nioh are on my list to try next. I can't say I'm expecting too much.
Scarlet Nexus is not a Souls game. If you have played Astral Chain then you will know what to expect. Hell, Kingdom Hearts in a closer comparison.
