Dark Souls III director not concerned about whether or not his next game resembles Dark Souls

Some tidbits from Weekly Famitsu's interview with Hidetaka Miyazaki.

Dark Souls III

The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has an interview with Dark Souls III director Hidetaka Miyazaki on the release of the game’s final expansion, “The Ringed City,” which is available today. But Miyazaki also talks somewhat about what’s next for From Software.

Here are the tidbits:

With the second expansion released, that means that the series is complete.

Miyazaki: “As I’ve said from the beginning, there are no further developments planned at the moment, at least.”

Where you able to do everything you wanted to do?

Miyazaki: “I can’t really say that I was able to do everything. As is the case with all of the games I’ve directed, each entry in the Dark Souls series has its own problems, and I carry those blunders. However, I think that even on this premise, Dark Souls was a happy series.”

What kind of game would you like to develop in the future?

Miyazaki: “Since I’ve already started work on several, it would be a spoiler if I said something. One thing I can say is that our stance on game production has not changed. In making a new game, we’re not being conscious of making something that resembles Dark Souls, or on the other hand of making something that doesn’t resemble Dark Souls. Not being concerned about whether it is similar to Dark Souls, I plan on making a game that I want to make now, and that is interesting and worthwhile.”

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
