Dark Souls 2 Interview.

So, Dark Souls 2 doesn't have its own forum yet, but this'll do.

http://www.edge-online.com/features/...of-the-series/

Just after reading this interview, the last bit of it caused a chill down my spine.

''Weíve been taught that if the Fire Keeper dies, the bonfire they guard turns to cold ash. Letís hope this is the exception. Dark Souls II has the potential to be a dramatic departure indeed.''

I'm just hoping the new directors keep it as HC as DaS was. This is a series that will die if they try to make it mainstream.

I still reserve judgment until the game is in my hands, but I will say that I get a little more worried with each new piece of information.

Miyazaki will be sorely missed!

Just by the simple fact that Miyazaki states: "Itís true that Iím sad about not being involved in the development of Dark Souls II, because Iíve worked on Demonís Souls and Dark Soulsí development for the past five years." tells me everything I need to know about how this went down. He got fucked! And no, it's not fucking time for fresh impressions! That's simply Miyazaki showing class and tact. Having absolutely adored every moment of Demon's souls and Dark Soul's I was thrilled to hear this series got it's legs and sold well enough to get a sequel. And now, just as it's becoming successful, they fucking jelly-finger the very person responsible for made these games so amazing.

Well, I guess this now has nowhere to go but up for me. Because my expectations for DS2 could not possibly be any lower.

@ghost: This is sad to hear. This happened to the creator of Final Fantasy too (for example). He was extremly succesfull ,but got replaced by somebody else.

I hate this "replacements" so much, why change something/somebody when its already super good?

I can`t fucking understand that. Its like everytime something is successfull , the big bosses behind the companies get greedy as fuck and want to get more and more money as fast as possible, but with this fucked up behaviour they are destroying the work of the ones (the creators of the games we love), who brought the TRUE success/glory to the company.

"From Software's philosophy is not to get caught up chasing what's popular, but rather to make games on what we value. It's our companies most basic principle. Instead of saying, '"this other game is a hit, let's copy it,'" we put enormous emphasis on simply making the games we want to make." - Eiichi Nakajima, Sr. Managing Director

Sorry to tell you Eiichi Nakajima, but it sounds like Capcom doesn't agree with you.

What does Capcom have to do with it? They're not related to Dark Souls in any way whatsoever.

I don't remember typing that but I probably meant Namco Bandai.

Oh okay. That makes more sense.

I really don't think there's any cause for concern yet. I'm going to be optimistic and wait to see some footage before I pass judgement on Dark Souls 2. Hopefully a lot of new information will be released at E3 this year. I'm really looking forward to seeing how they implement some of these new additions and changes.

^THIS.^

It's a sequel - It'll be different game. but however it plays, it'll still be awesome because FromSoft are making it.
I personally can't wait to see how the online features have developed.
