Dark Souls and Bloodborne developer From Software is opening a new development studio in Fukuoka, Japan next month, the company announced.

From Software Fukuoka Studio “focus on creating 3D CG assets for games while working closely with the original studio in Tokyo,” according to the press release.

The company has high hopes that Fukuoka and its surrounding areas, which are easy to reach from Tokyo, “contribute to build good development environments that lead them to greater quality and creativity.”

The new studio will be established in October and begin operation in January 2016. From Software is now taking applications for a number of development staff at its recruiting website.

Great news that From Software is expanding IMO! Wonder what can this new studio create for us.

It's as I feared ...

They are going to keep milking the sh!t out of the idea behind Demon's Souls ...

I am disappoint, I don't understand why hardcore gamers are praising them for been like how Ubisoft handles AC or Activision handling COD ...

Why does a new studio that will focus on create 3D CG assets for games makes you think they'll keep milking souls games? Especially after Miyazaki went and said that he want to do new things?

What he says is not consistent with business logic or his actions ... 

The Souls franchise and games like it (Bloodborne) has made more money than their previous franchises and Miyazaki hasn't been involved of any other franchises when he directed Demon's Souls ... 

I must give my condolences to the Armored Core fans ...

because they make good games. Seriousley have you played a souls game? Comparing it to call of duty like franchises is an insult.

Here's how the hardcore cycle works:

1. "This game/series is good! It deserves to sell a lot."
2. Game/series is a breakout hit. - "It's still good. Well deserved."
3. Sequels release, IP is mainstream now. - "The developers sold out. This isn't good anymore."
4. The hardcore move on to another game that gives them the feeling that they know better than the mainstream.

Suppose that Souls games sell 5m+ copies with each installment. The hardcore would change their tune. It's the paradox of wanting the games that they like to become popular, only to move away from them once they are popular. Or to be more accurate, they still buy the games, but they don't admit that they are buying them anymore.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

who never bought these games, you are to be blamed for never buying other FromSoftware games. There was also Kuon and Otogi too. Why always giving blame on the devolopers?

We all have opinions ... 

I think I can compare it to COD when it comes to milking the idea and that's exactly what From Software is doing ...

they are milking a good idea that has an 80 hours campaign, old school hard gameplay and better graphics than call of duty. The multiplayer aspect works too
