In an interview with the gaming website Gamespot, Hidetaka Miyazaki shares his favourite FromSoftware title to date and a few tidbits about what made it such an iconic title.
Hidetaka Miyazaki Reveals Bloodborne As His Favourite FromSoftware Title
Miyazaki was interviewed in an article for Gamespot Brazil which was translated into English by Reddit user Gbraga. The interview went over why Bloodborne has become his most favourite FromSoftware title to date. Fans are always eager to find if Bloodborne 2 will be on the horizon, and From have even gone far enough to include an easter egg in their title Déraciné that relates to the game. Even now the avid fanbase have unearthed many secrets found in-game, whether it be lore or even through data mining cut content bosses, or an original use of an object such as the Yharnam Stone. Passion for Bloodborne is very much alive and well, not just through its fans but also its director Hidetaka Miyazaki.
However, Miyazaki has still not given a definite confirmation on a sequel. When asked about if there were any improvements he would have wanted to make with Bloodborne, Miyazaki mentions in the interview “the Chalice Dungeons and the Blood Gems” as he wanted them to be “…more detailed, worked more thoroughly. I see the possibility of adding more to it”. The interviewer asks if this could be in the sequel, but Miyazaki replies:
Bloodborne 2… Unfortunately, it’s not up to me.
But Bloodborne still remains a project close to his heart:
But if I were to say which one stayed in my heart the most, it’s Bloodborne. It’s the one that marked me the most. I believe I did it my way, the way I wanted.
That being said, his favourite boss still comes from Demon’s Souls, the Old Monk, due to it’s “unique system” at the time, facing players versus other players. Players have a chance to invade another player, giving the option to fight them instead of the AI boss. This was something quite unusual in games during that time and has continued to stay with Miyazaki.
There was no mention in this interview of the current project Miyazaki has been working on, the enigmatic Elden Ring that has stirred a lot of anticipation, specially as it’s in collaboration with Song of Fire and Ice author George R.R. Martin.
