From Software today announced that Hidetaka Miyazaki, the mind behind the popular Souls
RPG series, is the company's new president.
Miyazaki joined the Japanese company back in 2004, where he created and directed both Demon's Souls
and Dark Souls
. He also supervised on Dark Souls II
while he worked on another title.
The director's promotion came as part of a large group of personnel changes
[Japanese], including Demon's Souls
producer Masanori Takeuchi moving up into a senior managing director role.
These changes come just weeks after From Software was acquired by Japanese media corporation Kadokawa
, with the aim to take advantage of the company's worldwide influence.
