It is not a demo but an independent self contained prequel to King's Field III. Yes, Pilot Style is its own game in the series!
The plot takes place shortly before the events of KFIII : you play as Silviera, who is searching for the stolen Sword of Moonlight in order to return it to its resting place, away from dark forces.
It's about an hour long.
It might be the rarest Playstation hibaihin if you consider that it might only have been distributed in two places :
- at the Tokyo Game Show, on August 22nd 1996 , From Software is said to have offered 8 copies (I don't know the details);
- a magazine offered to win 5 copies in a lottery as well.
That would make a total of 13 copies...
I know that some fans have given up the idea of grabbing it after 10 years or so of constant searching, some are ready to pay 4-digit prices for it... So I would not be surprised if it were true.
What? You want to know how I managed to get a sealed copy and how much I paid for it?
