Dark Souls II will boast a "new hero, new storyline, and an unfamiliar world." But it also might be…easier?
No, perhaps that isn't the correct interpretation of the comment in question, which comes from game director Tomohiro Shibuya, one of two directors that have taken over control from previous boss Hidetaka Miyazaki. In speaking to Edge , Shibuya said he's more about the direct approach:
"I personally am the sort of person who likes to be more direct than subtle. [Dark Souls II] will be more straightforward and more understandable."
Now, some hardcore fans of the original are already skeptical. What exactly does that mean? The problem is that it's kinda vague, so a lot of Dark Souls followers are a little concerned; maybe it means it'll be more linear, or not quite so surreal and mystical. It doesn't help that new directors are on board, which prompts more suspicion. But this isn't a casual/mainstream project and From Software knows it, so maybe we shouldn't be worried at all…what do you say?
