Elden Ring: 9 Fascinating Insights From Miyazaki and Kitao's New Interviews

I’ve sifted through the latest (and perhaps last) wave of interviews about From Software’s forthcoming Elden Ring and wanted to share my nine biggest takeaways. These are less “news headlines” and more creative insights straight from Hidetaka Miyazaki and Yasuhiro Kitao themselves. I thought it’d be fun to discuss some of their biggest talking points in order to better understand the studio’s outlook and creative process during Elden Ring’s development. And there’s no serious spoilers to follow. I’m primarily pulling from Kitao’s interview at Taipei Game Show 2022 and Miyazaki’s interviews with Edge Magazine and the official Playstation Blog. And I’m also sharing seven additional takeaways in a second follow-up video exclusively for my patrons on Patreon. All of my patrons, regardless of tier, will have access to that second video. So check out the link below if you’re interested. (My patrons also receive access to my exclusive podcast and newsletter, as well as merch discounts, early video previews, Discord server perks, and more!)
