Hidetaka Miyazaki, best known as the director behind Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls 1, has been appointed President of FROM Software. Not to be confused with Hayao Miyazaki, retired animated film director who made such classics as Spirited Away and Grave of the Fireflies. I don’t really know what he’s up to.
There honestly isn’t much of a news story here, but it’s just exciting when cool people in the industry succeed, especially considering that the appeal of the Souls franchise is far from mainstream, yet it still affords FROM all this success. And besides, I can report about whatever I want.
