FromSoftware: There Is More To Come From Demon's Souls/Dark Souls

Dark Souls is harder than a coffin nail, but it's a very successful video game. For that reason we're not too surprised to hear From Software confirm that it's not done with the series, but it's a relief nonetheless.

Masanori Takeuchi is the head of R & D at FromSoftware, he spoke to GameTrailers about the future of the studio.

"Of course, it's not over yet," said Takeuchi, discussing the future of the Demon's Souls/Dark Souls series. "You have to go back to our roots, which is King's Field. We've made many games in that series. We've always been enamored by dark fantasy action RPGs. That's just been our core DNA and I think we'll continue to utilize that."

The studio is also looking to move into other markets, and is considering creating some sort of game for mobile devices.

"[A]s developers, we like to do new things and new challenges will help us mature and grow as a developer," said Takeuchi. "Smart phones and tablets are an interesting challenge for us."

"If we do go down that path, it's not going to be what you see on the market today, more watered down, less 'core' experiences. We like to make games for core gamers, so if we take that approach, it's going to be a core experience on a tablet, something that gamers are going to love."

    New game mechanic, if you die in ghost form not only do you lose your souls but your whole SAVE FILE!

      and if you die after that, your hard drive formats itself!

      Soon there will be a peripheral that makes you feel the pain that your character feels.

        Reminds me of this: http://www.kotaku.com.au/2009/11/the-dangerous-video-game-you-werent-supposed-to-play/

        and if you die a third time, your console bricks itself, and you need a new console.

        HAAAAAARRRRRDDDDCOOOOOOOOORRRRREEEEEEE

    I can't imagine playing one of these games on a tablet or a touchscreen phone. They require precision and control, and touch screen controls provide neither.

    I can see them making a strategy game with the same dark fantasy theme.

    I wonder how the DLC is coming along for Dark Souls?

    I wish they wouldnt make a tablet version. It's more costly when you throw it against a wall in frustration

    I reckon in the next one they'll probably have it so that whenever you die somebody from From Software comes around to your house and kicks you in the balls.

    I have to say, as much as I loved Demon's Souls and Dark Souls, I'm probably done with it now. I still hope to finish Dark Souls at some point, but I can't see myself going back for a third instalment..

    Come on Dark Souls on PC.

      Dark Souls PC + Mod community = BIG WIN
