Bloodborne and Dark Souls developer From Software has announced they will open a new development studio, based in Fukuoka, Japan next month.
The studio’s main job will focus on producing “3D CG assets,” while helping the main studio in the development process of their games in general. From Software sees Fukuoka as a good choice, since it has a “number of passionate young people and rich living environments.”
“The Fukuoka studio will focus on creating 3D CG assets for games while working closely with the original studio in Tokyo.”
“Fukuoka and its surrounding areas are easy to reach from Tokyo and these areas have enormous potential as there are a number of passionate young people and rich living environments. FromSoftware has high hopes that these high-potential areas contribute to build good development environments that lead them to greater quality and creativity.”
The new studio will be established in October, and will begin working efficiently starting from January 2016. They also encouraged people to start applying for some of the vacant development positions.
