Miyazaki, head of FromSoftware, believes Elden Ring owes a lot to Dark Souls 2.

In a recent interview with GameTopic, Hidetaka Miyazaki, the director of Elden Ring and the head of FromSoftware, shared his thoughts on Dark Souls 2. And let me tell you, opinions on Dark Souls 2 are like Scorchbeasts in Fallout 76 โ€“ they vary wildly!

Some players consider Dark Souls 2 the black sheep of the Dark Souls franchise. These naysayers believe it falls short in comparison to its siblings, labeling it as the worst Dark Souls game ever. However, there are also those who appreciate this captivating title for its open-ended gameplay and player-driven exploration. It has become the Marmite of the Souls series โ€“ you either love it or hate it.

Miyazaki, however, believes that Dark Souls 2 played a crucial role in shaping the franchise we know and adore today. He expressed his admiration for the game, stating, โ€œI actually personally think this was a really great project for us, and I think without it, we wouldnโ€™t have had a lot of the connections and ideas that carried the rest of the series.โ€

But what sets Dark Souls 2 apart from its siblings? Well, itโ€™s the only game in the โ€˜SoulsBorneโ€™ series where Miyazaki didnโ€™t take the helm. Instead, Tomohiro Shibuya and Yui Tanimura co-directed the game, while Miyazaki took on a more supervisory role. This shift in directorial responsibility brought a different impetus to the development process. Miyazaki believes that having new directors for Dark Souls 2 led to the exploration of fresh ideas and connections that might not have emerged otherwise.

โ€œItโ€™s very likely that weโ€™ll see new directors going forward,โ€ Miyazaki declared. โ€œAnd if we do, Iโ€™d like to step away from that supervisory role and give them full direction and control over those projects. This is the best way for them to flourish and for new projects to thrive within our studio.โ€

This statement suggests a growing confidence within Miyazaki in letting other talents take the reins. One such talent is Masaru Yamamura, who directed Armored Core 6, a game that Miyazaki handed over early in development. Yamamura had previously worked closely with Miyazaki as the lead gameplay developer for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which probably helped establish trust between them.
