Dark Souls II - Comments from Miyazaki
Polygon has some comments on Dark Souls II from Hidetaka Miyazaki, the previous project director, in Japan's Famitsu magazine. Dark Souls II will be set in a different region of the same world and he believes they need to protect the "core":
"If we're going to announce this as a sequel to Dark Souls then I think there's certainly a core that we need to protect," Miyazaki said. "I'm talking about how we think about the difficulty level and how you achieve things in-game; about the concepts behind the mechanics and level design. Outside of that core, though, I think it's better to leave things to the discretion of the director. There's a lot around that core that we need to fix or adjust, besides, and individual touches always tend to come out in the world setting and artwork, so I'm not meddling in that very much."
