Yuka Kitamura confirmed the news on Twitter (opens in new tab), where she replied to a fan hoping to hear the famed composer’s work on Elden Ring, the latest project by From Software and A Song of Ice and Fire author George RR Martin.
We haven’t heard a whole lot (read: almost nothing) about Elden Ring since its first trailer was revealed at E3 2019 (opens in new tab). We were all geared up for an appearance at the Taipei Game Show, but the event was cancelled due to concerns around the spread of coronavirus.
What we have seen is about as grandiose as you’d expect from a collaboration between From Software and the author of perhaps the most influential modern fantasy saga. Compared to From mainstay Dark Souls, Elden Ring is said to be bigger, more open, and more versatile.
“Even when compared to the Dark Souls series, I believe this title will provide even more variety in the ways for players to overcome challenges and tweak their tactics when facing enemies,” Dark Souls and Bloodborne director Hidetaka Miyazaki told Xbox Wire (opens in new tab). The developer also described Elden Rings as “without a doubt our biggest title yet in terms of sheer volume,” in a conversation with IGN (opens in new tab).
With Kitamura confirmed to be working her auditory magic behind the scenes, Elden Ring sounds like one to keep an eye on.
We’re not quite sure when Elden Ring will be out, but here are the best upcoming games of 2020 (opens in new tab) to keep you busy until then.
