Miyazaki doesn’t prioritize graphics, but wants THE FIRE RING look good
In the most recent issue of the magazine EDGE (via VGC), Miyazaki accepted that the graphic section of Demon’s Souls for PS5 was added pressure for the team in charge of the look of THE FIRE RING.
The creative accepted that graphic quality has not been a priority in any of his projects, so other key aspects, such as playability, are always at the center. Despite this, FromSoftware has endeavored to ensure that THE FIRE RING look good and be attractive.
“Graphic fidelity is not something we put as a top priority. What we ask for on the graphics side depends on the systems and requirements of the game itself, and has a lower priority compared to the other elements of development. So this is always an area where I feel a bit regretful with my graphics team because I know they work so hard. And they have worked very hard on Elden RingMiyazaki commented.
Miyazaki has not played the remake of Demon’s Souls for this reason
The developer confessed that he is not a fan of going back to his old games, which is why he has not played Demon’s Souls on PlayStation 5. He said that the experience of replaying his titles can be overwhelming, as it brings back many memories and emotions.
“I haven’t actually played the remake of Demon’s Souls . But this is because I do not enjoy playing the titles that I made in the past. It brings back a lot of old emotions, a lot of old memories, and this gets a little overwhelming, and it doesn’t feel like playing anymore. So I haven’t played the remake of Demon’s Souls , but I’m really happy to see that it has this fresh look, these new graphics of the current generation, “said Miyazaki.
Finally, he commented that he was concerned about the relaunch, as he knows that the original title was very hard for some, so he did not know if it would be well received. In the end he was happy with the reaction of the players.
