Dark Souls Director Moves On

Over the last few years Demon Souls and Dark Souls have caught gamer's attention in one way or another and kept gamer's coming back for more. Gamer's were told they had more on the way with the worldwide reveal of Dark Souls 2 at the Video Game Awards on Spike TV. Unfortunately yesterday a sad bit of news was revealed regarding Dark Souls and someone on the development team.

Hidetaka Miyazaki was the director for both Demon Souls and Dark Souls for the development studio of FromSoftware and it appears he will be moving on into another project. This decision was a company based decision by Namco Bandai in order to inject the new upcoming game with some fresh blood. Replacing Miyazaki's role as director is Tomohiro Shibuya and Yui Tanimura. 

Even though Miyazaki is saddened by the chain of events he shares "Sometimes I'd like to work on a warmer game - not necessarily casual, but warmer in terms of the atmosphere and the environment." Any gamer who has played or watched gameplay of Demon Souls or Dark Souls knows exactly what Miyazaki is  talking about with atmosphere and enemies. Even though he will not be taking part in the development of Dark Souls 2 he says he very much looks forward to playing it and that it's important that the developers serve the series fans with whats to come.
