Demon's Souls Creator Open To Another Studio Doing A Remaster

Demon's Souls Creator Open To Another Studio Doing A Remaster
He poured his heart and Souls into it.



Demon's Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki says that a remaster of the genre-defining game is possible, but he's not eager to get started on it himself. In an interview, the director shared some thoughts on his legacy and the changing nature of Souls-likes, including whether Demon's Souls could get a remaster similar to Dark Souls.

"It's like when you write--when you're younger, you look back on [previous work] and you think, ‘Oh, goodness what was I thinking,'" he told Game Informer. "It's not that I'm embarrassed, I just don't like to look at my previous works."

He also said that he could envision another studio handling the port, even if the idea makes him nervous. "If it was a studio that really loved the original work and really put their heart and soul into realizing it again, then that's something I would enjoy," he said. "But it's really complicated because I have these fond memories. Thinking about the idea of a remaster gives me kind of butterflies in my stomach and makes me a little nervous, so it's complicated. But I understand there are many users and many players and fans out there who really love Demon's, so if that’s something they could accomplish with a studio that loved the work, then yeah, I'd be okay with that."

All that said, he also noted that it isn't entirely up to him. The decision would be up to the game's publisher, which was Sony.

"That was the first action fantasy game that I created, or I directed," he said. "I have fond memories of it, but it's definitely not my place to say they'll remaster."

Miyazaki's next game is Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which takes the Souls mechanics into 16th century Japan. It certainly carries some familiarity with the existing games, but From Software is rethinking some core elements like boss battles.

Fond memories of farming a winged spear off the red eyed knight in the first area. Wish more souls fans could play it. A remaster would have to be completely butchered for me to put my money away.

I'm not sure if this is correct but I think Demons souls was the first ps3 game I ever stuck with long enough to get the Platinum trophy on. I say it still holds up to this day as some of the best gaming in the whole soulsborne line of games.

It is the first game I got platinum on too. I only ever really did that with games I loved or games that were easy to do it with.

Like MAG, I got the plat BEFORE They nerfed the requirements to get it. They went from destroying buildings 200 of each type of building. Like radar, bunkers, etc. But then they nerfed them to needing only 25 each of them. BLAH! now that's way too easy to do it and I did it before it cause that's how awesome I was in that game.

I was like the ultimate spy in MAG, I equipped everything that goes with stealth and they never could find me and when they went to defused my bombs, I knifed them in the back! lol I miss that game.


One time, 5 of them showed up to defused it, I stayed back and sniped them all hahaha it was hilarious how nooby everyone was at that game.

Makes sense since Dark Souls was already outsourced to another company for the remaster.

Loved the original. Loved it to death. That said, I've had my fill. I never cared to try Dark Souls and I don't really care about a remaster. But what it was, when it was, was perfect for me at the time.
