Demon’s Souls Remaster is Under Sony’s Jurisdiction – Miyazaki
“It could happen through another developer.”
From Software’s Dark Souls and Bloodborne series have been a major success for the developer but both have origins in Demon’s Souls, the first breakout title in the franchise which debuted on the PlayStation 3 many moons ago.
Since then, many players have been asking for a remaster or remake. Game director Hidetaka Miyazaki may have appeared to not be interested in pursuing said remaster but later clarified to GameSpot that the decision is actually up to Sony.
“It seems like there was a misunderstanding in a previous interview in relation to a remake or a remastering of the game, so let me reiterate here. The Dark Souls series is Bandai Namco Entertainment’s IP, and Demon’s Souls and Bloodborne is Sony Interactive Entertainment’s IP. Hence, the decision to do a remake or remastering is under their jurisdiction. For me and for From Software, I don’t think we’ll be involved with their happening, but it could happen through another developer.”
