From Software‘s president Hidetaka Miyazaki has shared a surprising comment about battle royale games.
In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Miyazaki has indeed claimed the Japanese studio is interested in joining the genre.
“There’s always the possibility,” Miyazaki told the publication.
“These games are definitely fun. And we’re interested in the patterns they are taking. If we did it, it might be a bit different! But we’re definitely interested and there’s definitely that possibility in the future. We’d love to take a crack at them some day.”
So, while you can’t see soulslike gameplay fitting battle royale that good, there’s a chance another historic From Software brand, Armored Core, could be used in the segment.
On top of that, a new IP could also be coming to just test the genre and see how the developer can make the best out of it.
Anyway, perhaps, it’s just talking. And it’s just surprising that Miyazaki, one of the leaders in the creation of single-player titles, has such a good opinion of battle royale games.
Were you expecting to think things like this about Fortnite, Apex Legends, PUBG and all the others?
