Demon’s Souls Director Appointed President of From Software

on May 21, 2014 5:27 AM

Kadokawa announced today with a press release that following the acquisition of From Software by the group, the executive team of the development studio has undergone several changes.

The most interesting within the list of new positions is the appointment of Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls Game Director Hidetaka Miyazaki as the new President of the studio. Additionally, Demon’s Souls Producer Masanori Takeuchi has been placed on the Senior Managing Director seat.

The press release did not specify whether Miyazaki-san will continue his work as game director on the side of his new executive position or not, but considering his track record and the rumors that place him at the helm of development of the PS4 exclusive codenamed Project Beast we can definitely hope that he will.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
