There have been many Souls games that have come out over the past several years and just about every one of them has been adored by everyone, which has resulted in some begging for a remake/remaster of the first game. 2009’s Demon’s Souls is where everything started as a PlayStation 3 exclusive, before the Dark Souls series was started as a multi-platform release.
While previous reports have suggested that a remaster or remake of Demon’s Souls would be unlikely to happen, the game’s director has now come out to clear the air. Hidetaka Miyazaki spoke to GameSpot recently where he said the following:
“It seems like there was a misunderstanding in a previous interview in relation to a remake or a remastering of the game, so let me reiterate here. The Dark Souls series is Bandai Namco Entertainment’s IP, and Demon’s Souls and Bloodborne is Sony Interactive Entertainment’s IP. Hence, the decision to do a remake or remastering is under their jurisdiction. For me and for From Software, I don’t think we’ll be involved with their happening, but it could happen through another developer.”
So while From Software will likely not have anything to do with another version of Demon’s Souls, it really isn’t up to them when all is said and done. Seeing as how many remasters there are these days, it definitely isn’t a stretch to expect a remaster of Demon’s Souls at some point.
