It says Hidetaka Miyazaki was the original director for the game but then he handed it over to the Sekiro director. I wonder if that was cause he had to work on Elden Ring or if they have another big game in development.

I gather maybe Elden Ring DLC and then another project?

GamingSinceForever531d ago

Elden Ring DLC is totally unnecessary. 😂

I think I put about 220 hours into the game and still haven’t unlocked a few doors.

It had enough filler , but a tight DLC I wouldn’t mind . They said DLC is coming

I'm betting Elden Ring DLC is headed by yui tanimura while Miyazaki is working on a new IP

jznrpg531d ago (Edited 531d ago )

I do believe they saw the massive money Elden Ring made and Miyazaki was put on another Souls game or DLC or both . That is most likely what happened in my mind .

I don’t hope for Elden Ring 2 though any time soon .
I’d much rather have Bloodborne 2 , Sekiro 2 , Demons Souls 2 .
Would be cool if they want back to the old days and make ShadowTower , KingsField or of course a new IP.

I am really looking forward to Armored Core 6 and hopefully what Miyazaki started and Yamamura finishes is the best mech game ever made , I hope

What do you mean "put on"?
He is the President and Representative Director of From Software!

This isn't getting the hype it deserves. I haven't felt this excited since the announcement of FF7R, and we all know how long ago that was.

Masaru Yamamura was the Lead Designer in Sekiro, not director

Indeed, the only game Hidetaka Miyazaki didn't direct was Dark Souls 2.

Day 1. Almost positive it will be GOTY, unless Bloodborne 2 releases the same year.

What’s the best Armored Core game to check out?

fitofficial530d ago

The controls for the PS2 games were pretty rough before AC3. I'd say start there, but if you want a real challenge AC2 is a good place to start.

Never had one, always wanted one.

Now with power of next gen console (to do these justice)
....might have to oblige and buy it finally.

In other words, FromSoft is kicking ass; other Kadokawa game companies, not so much.

Name another company that has ever released only games worthy of a 90+ score for over a decade? starting with Demon's Souls, nothing but 90+s...even DS2 was a great game.
