Dark Souls 2 - New Famitsu Details

New Dark Souls II details were released in this week’s issue of Famitsu. The info comes from supervisor, and series creator Hidetaka Miyazaki.

- Miyazaki is the game’s supervisor

- Dark Souls/Dark Souls II share the same worldview
- Dark Souls II’s story won’t necessarily be related to the original
- Dark Souls II takes place in a different time period
- Keyword is time
- Changed game-engine
- Team going after photo-realism
- Movement to be improved
- Considering having players directly get involved with each other

- Extra indivudal item/parts won’t be sold as a fee through DLC

  1. Really hope the new direction doesn't kill the franchise. Glad to hear about the no weapons for cash decision.

    On another note, how come you don't have a site of your own that isn't a blog, NC? Your news is usually more up to date than any of the 'news' sites.
