Congratulations are in order for the lead developer of Dark Souls, as he has just gone up to become the president of Dark Souls’ parent company, From Software.
To be specific, we’re talking about Hidetaka Miyezaki, who was head of development on both Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls. The prior president Naotoshi Jin, has taken a backseat role as an advisor, similar to Bill Gates in Microsoft.
In fact, in light of From Software’s acquisition by Kadokawa Games, almost the entire management lineup has been switched around. We’re sharing that for you below.
