Dark Souls II director Yui Tanimura said during a roundtable interview at the Tokyo Game Show this week that difficult games are now the "minority" in the video game industry. But this won't stop the Japanese studio from making games that might make you rip your hair out.
"Other than focusing on a dark fantasy world, we're focusing more on making players experience the sense of accomplishment," he said. "That's what we have been always pursuing for all games that From Software has created. We are aware that creating [games] featuring higher difficulty is becoming a minority in this industry. But that's what From Software has been working on. In order to bring a sense of accomplishment to the players, that's something we have to keep, stick with it, and keep remaining to do for all the upcoming titles that we will be creating."
