Author and references

Hidetaka Miyazaki director at FromSoftware of genre-defining games, i Souls is wondering about the resounding success achieved with Elden Ring.

After reaching 17 million copies sold, the title Bandai-Namco is preparing to win several awards ai The Game Awards which will be held in December.

In a recent interview published by Famitsu, a well-known Japanese newspaper, Miyazaki-san said he felt honored to have won the Users' Choice, or to have been awarded by the public rather than by a commission of insiders.

“When they ask me why so much success, I can't understand, but my feeling is that I don't intend to change the way I have done things in the future”

And then again:

I try not to think about it too much, because it could become a distraction when I make the next project. However, I am very grateful and feel honoured. Personally, I try not to look directly at user comments, this is because I can't listen to everyone's opinions: I'm afraid if I did, they would have a strong influence on my future decisions, so I'm careful.

Then he specified:

However, when I look at the reactions, I notice that there are many people who have played Elden Ring for the first time with a title that is in fact in the same genre as Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, etc. It makes me nostalgic: I remember feeling very happy when I tried Demon's Souls for the first time.
It's an exciting title to discover and we've had a surge in new users. Personally I was happy to hear this kind of feedback.

According to the producer, his secret is that he continues to make products that interest him, going straight on his way.
