Now that Dark Souls III’s second and final DLC is out, series director and FromSoftware president Hidetaka Miyazaki shared his thoughts on wrapping up the series and what’s next in an interview featured in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine. [Thanks, Hachima.]
The second DLC expansion has released, now that makes the series complete.
Hidetaka Miyazaki, Director: “As I’ve said from the start, we don’t have any further developments planned at the moment.”
Were you able to do everything you wanted?
Miyazaki: “I can’t say I did everything. Like all the games I’ve directed, each Dark Souls title from the series has their own issues and failures. However, even with that premise, I believe that the Dark Souls series was satisfactory.”
What kind of games would you like to try working on or develop next?
Miyazaki: “I’m already working on several, so if I say what they are it would be a bit of a spoiler. One thing I can say is that nothing has changed for us when it comes to our stance on game production. While working on a new game, we’re not being conscious about making something that is similar to Dark Souls, and on the other hand, we’re not being conscious about making something that isn’t similar to Dark Souls. Without any worries about whether it is or isn’t similar to the Dark Souls series, I want to make something now, and I plan on making a game that’s fun and worthwhile.”
Dark Souls III is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
