    Indeed, I'll confirm this as well. Also for the record how I've functionally worked is I first believed it was Kuon related on my own due to a few things I noticed, I shared my case why I thought it was Kuon from a few observations and knowledge on Kuon, then someone contacted me about something related to that. I then seperately approached someone I know who might know something, they were a bit obtuse but told me something very similar to what the person who approached me told me. I know no one from FROM or anything, but I do know a few people within the industry. This case I couldn't say I 100% know, but I've decided to believe in my own case I originally made and what the two people told me. But people should theorize what they think, I'm interested to see what this is as I haven't seen anything, only noticed some things and heard from a couple little birdies on some things. But I'll just mostly focus on why I think it's Kuon related, GIVEN I believe this isn't Kuon 2 but going to be more a spititual successor if it is indeed the case.

    I've also heard from a third source more recently this is not being published by Namco, but I promised not to say anything more than that

    It'll be interesting to see regardless, and fun what plays out here.

    I do not think we'll see a BloodBorne 2 up to PS5.

    It's probably going to be to Kuon what Demons was to Kings Field.

    Yea, I love that game. Just for the sheer craziness.

  6. I am starting to lean this way as well, just by the comments the past few days from Omnipotent, as well as seeing how they added PlayStation VR at the end of the platform list of the video on their YouTube.

    Post 579 in this thread.

    I had no idea that Dark Souls was a Bandai Namco franchise. I knew about Demon's/Sony but I always tought that Dark belong to From Software.

    I assume they want to keep the rights of the new franchise this time.

    I expect Shadow Souls with the dying twice mechanic.

    You have to kill enemies "twice".

    I think FromSoft owns the IP, but Bandai owns the publishing rights for worldwide. From publishes it themselves in Japan. So I'm assuming one can't make dark souls without the other

    The Dark Souls trademark is jointly owned by From Software and Bandai Namco, according to the legalese on the back of the DS3 box.

    From the link:

    When he says it like this I don't think From holds any power over the franchise, that's why I was surprised.

    Essentially, they own it (in part), but they don't have full control.

    Sony owns Demon's Souls (and Bloodborne) completely, but Dark Souls is jointly owned by From and NBGI. Miyazaki is just making it clear that in both cases they can't do anything with those IPs without the consent of the owner.

    Can you tell us anything regarding the "Shadows die twice" game genre?

    Miyazaki himself said in an interview that there no plans for BB2, so I guess this is nothing more than wishful thinking.

    Since they've already missed 2017, hopefully they'll get one of their games out not long after E3.

    Would make sense and be in line with what they have stated together with Kadokawa during the buyout. My prediction is still that it is a self published game or published by their parent company worldwide.

    Does Kadokawa have a western publishing arm?

    I'm perfectly fine with never having a BB2, as I don't think it will add anything meaningful to the BB universe, but this reasoning is really dumb - he ultimately decides whether or not a game has variety. If he wants more interesting magic or more armor variety, all he has to do is design the game with that in mind.

    They have been working with NIS for those but they might be gearing up for it. If I'm not wrong From has published some of their games themselves in Japan.

    Maybe we get a trailer at E3, but if Sony are really focusing on TLOU Part II, Spider-Man, Tsushima and Death Stranding, they might want to wait until Paris Games Week or PSX.

    I guess we'll have to see. It doesn't really seem like they have the pipeline in place to become a full-on publisher in the West, but if they can figure it out, that's a good thing.

    Well, sure. I wasn't commenting on how BB2, if it came into existence, would be designed, merely agreeing with Miyazaki's thoughts on the first game. I could well see a Bloodborne 2 developing different combat styles further, especially if it would be in an altogether different setting as some have theorized.

    I'm hearing people saying this is going to be published by Bethesda since an ERA poster said its meant to be a closer of a press conference.

    If this is true, then it has to be a Shadow Tower reboot. From Software with Bethesda’s First person single player games expertise.

    Um... I’m getting hyped. Omg the fucking possibilities!

    yeah,it almost perfected meele combat,but has nothing else to offer except that in terms of combat gameplay. I found Dark Souls combat to have a wider variety of options and excel in many different combat styles,at least in PvE
     
  46. Ugh... I hope it isn't restricted to just a first person perspective...
     
  47. That would be something. Bethesda will have one hell of a show if this game can be added to their roster. We can only speculate what they have in store for us but Rage 2 is a fact, very likely BGS'S new game, maybe Doom 2, Prey DLC or expansion etc.

    So a new IP.
     
  49. I'm excited to see what this is but I still can't help but be salty because that teaser was a huge dick move to put in the game awards right before Sony's disastrous show. Like come on, they had to know people would think it's Bloodborne 2 and thus be really salty to get no info about it in the Sony show.

    Anyways, I'm excited at the idea of it being a spiritual successor to Ku-on. That game is weird. Hope it looks way more Resident Evil/Silent Hill than Souls. Especially now in a post Silent Hills world.
