Editor’s note: The title of this article has been changed to reflect that Bandai Namco published Dark Souls, and did not develop it.
Bandai Namco released an animated teaser for a new title today, telling us to #PrepareToDine, showing a world with monsters, vampires, and lots of blood. No confirmation has been made on whether this is tied to the Dark Souls series (which has been promoted with #PrepareToDie in the past) or Hidetaka Miyazaki, the director of the Souls series, but Miyazaki has announced that the Dark Souls series is finished and he is working on new titles. In a recent interview with the Japanese magazine Famitsu, and translated by twitter user ‘BlackKite’ Miyazaki had this to say:
Hidetaka Miyazaki: Dark Souls series is completely done as of DS3: The Ringed City. At least for now we don't have any future plans for it. pic.twitter.com/M3LlZ1gTHB— 黒凧 BlackKite (@bk2128) March 28, 2017
From Miyazaki: Currently working on a number of games that should be interesting. We're not concerned about whether they resemble DS or not. pic.twitter.com/7mMcF26qsL— 黒凧 BlackKite (@bk2128) March 28, 2017
So this new title could be tied to Miyazaki and the Dark Souls team, only time will tell. More news is to be announced on April 20th.
What do you think of the teaser? Are you #PreparedToDine? Let us know in the comments!
