    Kadokawa bought Dark Souls II



    From Software, became famous because of Demon's and Dark Souls, acquire Japanese publisher Kadokawa.
    Kadokawa - one of Japan's largest publishers engaged in production of books, magazines, manga, movies and games. Among the latter is known for Lollipop Chainsaw Killer is Dead and Goiti Courts. Kadokawa Games also develops games: she created TRPG Natural Doctrine should go beyond the West in the III quarter of this year.
    Given the fact that From Software is famous as the developer of hardcore role-playing series , it's likely we will have a new Dark Souls, but in a new universe. If we analyze the overall situation trademarks and resources of various companies related somehow to the Dark Souls, then there is an interesting situation :

    Developers from From Software will engage in the creation of a new franchise , most likely, in the spirit of Dark Souls. Namco Bandai, which owns the rights to the trademark Dark Souls, is unlikely to want to miss the gold mine and abandon the use of a popular brand , and therefore attract staff of developers to create a sequel to Dark Souls 2 . Company Sony, according to rumors , is developing a Demon's Souls 2 . Announcement this game can take place on the summer E3. It is not known whether all these projects become just as popular as their predecessors, but the players are obviously still a lot of waiting for the pain and suffering . But " the Polish response " series Dark Souls - Lords of the Fallen - out this summer.

    Nope. I think it's releated. Because Kadokawa, anime, manga = releated to anime.

    The COMPANY is related to anime, but the news is not.

    :/ incorrect.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kadokawa_Shoten

    Kadokawa made Kantai Collection(which has the next biggest fan-art base after Touhou), published a bunch of magazines/manga(including Newtype), and published grasshoppers games.(they did not make it, simply funded it).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grasshopper_Manufacture
    ------------------------------------------------------

    Also although people are more familiar with Dark Souls thanks to DS2, From Software was first and foremost the developers of Armored Core and have sold more copies of that than they have with their "souls" franchise.


    Though I like from-software/DS2 was an extremely lazy design compared to the first one and had many issues that were also due to lazy programming.
    --------------------------------------------------

    It IS anime related because Kadokawa has a big presence in the animesphere.
