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."
