From Software’s Hidetaka Miyazaki, the mastermind behind the likes of Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and the upcoming Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, has shared his thoughts on the (oft-requested) possibility of a Demon’s Souls remake.
Demon’s Souls is, of course, the 2009 PS3 game that first introduced the world to Miyazaki’s mesmerising, and hugely influential, action-adventure template. We’re rapidly approaching its tenth anniversary on February 5th this year, and that (alongside the fact that its official servers are no longer online), would seem to make 2019 the perfect time to give Demon’s Souls the respectful remaster treatment. As Digital Foundry’s Tom Morgan argued last year.
But does its creator agree? Somewhat disappointingly, Miyazaki has now revealed to Game Informer that, even though the decision to create a Demon’s Souls remaster would ultimately lie with IP holder Sony, it’s not a project that he’d personally be interested in working on.
