Sony and From Software should make "soul" games about Samurai and Steampunk (Koei nailed the Samurai with Nioh)

Here is the deal guys, I think the "souls" formula games should receive other themes as Samurai and Steampunk, obviously not being called souls like Bloodborne.

For the Samurai idea, FS is a Japan company as well as Sony, and that could be a nice game to boost HW sales in Japan and also spread more worldwide the theme, because I do think we could and should, in general, appreciate way more this theme around here.

But how would it work? We could have classes as heavy samurais, focused on power and lacking speed using cool samurai (and even some european) armors, light samurais, wearing cool kimonos and with good power and speed/mobility, ninjas with cool stealth suits focused on speed/mobility, sorceress with cool robes/kimonos and focused on magic and elemental attacks, and alchemists, western like dressed focused on cience (not very evolved) using cure and some inventive weapons.

We could have all kind of weapons fitting all classes as hammers, bows, kunai and shuriken, short shorts, some western swords, claws, spears, ad stuff like this but of course with a main focus on the japanese swords, the katanas.

If some of you guys are familiar with the Way of the Samurai series, it shoud use a katana system like there, with them being diveded by stances in big categories that would drastically shape their use form, but also individually based to more specific properties and uses. With katanas ranging from lower usage to high usage, left or right body weight based, or even explosive speed based when drawing as late as one can to boost it speed and power to being able to use two swords.

The plot could be about the Shogun losing his mind and opening the gates of the hell or some crazy shit like this that can put monsters in the game :P, where you, who lost your honor, as well as everyone in the world (Japan), should fight to get it back, and that could be the currency, honor, or some other thing other than soul and blood :P

Now about the Steampunk..., just let their mind roam free and dream about all the crazy cool stuff we could get with it, fighting for steam or pieces of some highly technological materia that allowed that world to be real and became people's life, and desire.

don't tease me!, i would be so hyped for that!

edit: i forgot to mention... i didnt knew you played the way of the samurai games, men those games were great even though they were short they were extremely fun to play and really funny sometimes.



ponies. i want pretty ponies.



SciFi Souls
Cowboy Souls
Stoneage cave dweller Souls
pre-human jungle ape souls
early earth-mud life form souls.

:)



Stonepunk would be a daring path to take, but it would be an interesting one indeed!

NO.

Steampunk is fine for alot of things.... dont wanna see a feudal japan with samurais and steampunk.

Rather just have the Samurais ^-^.

 

Just give me a game of feudal japan, that plays like being inside one of James Clavells - shogun book series.

No need for sorcerers / supernatural elements.  If it needs classes theres still tons you could make without supernatural elements.

Dont need monsters,.... enemies are just factions that all want to be shogun.



Steampunk is an idea, but there is no need for a Samurai one. All those weapons listed are already in the souls games, along with European weapons. Now maybe having a more eastern setting would be interesting, but it would still have similar weapons. I don't know if I like the whole shogun idea either. As for steampunk, I feel like steampunk is too reliant on the use of guns for it to really work as a spiritual successor to the souls series. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't see how it would work.

I played 1 and 2, didn't play 3 and 4 yet, as I've never even saw a copy of 4 and the one site I know that have 3 (used) it's pricing it too highly, but I absolutely love it, WotS 2 was so good, I've played it several times to collect all the swords I could and upgrade them and also collect titles and unlock secrets. Beating the excalibur user (can't remember his name but I guess it was a spanish name) for the first time was damn hard. I absolutely loved doing it over and over, I think I still have my save, and if I remember it right I was missing only one weapon.



I would definitely buy this. Though I´d also buy a Samurai themed Bloodborne* and a Steampunk themed Bloodborne*. Holy hell now I´m getting greedy:
-Steampunk Bloodborne*
-Samurai Bloodborne*
-BAM! Samurai-Steampunk Bloodborne*

* I prefer Bloodbornes fast paced attack approach to Demon/Dark Souls slower paced wait and guard approach thus I´m calling it XX-themed BB

That's be cool, by why does Sony have to do it. I want it to be multiplatform so I can play it lol
