Dark Souls franchise is one of the most praised franchises developed by Japanese studios. Usually in the game industry we tend to compare one game to another even though sometimes they are completely different. Lets just say something same happened with Dark Souls creator, Hidetaka Miyazaki, and according to him Dark Souls is not worthy of comparison with Legend Of Zelda games.

Speaking with Glixel, Miyazaki said that he feels “deeply unworthy” of the comparison between Dark Souls and Zelda games. He further discussed his reverence for Legend Of Zelda games, and also said that both games are completely different, so a comparison would be inappropriate.

When I was a student, The Legend of Zelda was truly monumental. So to be perfectly honest, I feel deeply unworthy of the comparison. The Legend of Zelda and Dark Souls are different games belonging to different genres though, and they’re guided by different concepts of game design.

He further added that both games represent different ideals, and even if there is some similarity then it might be due to the fact that Legend Of Zelda is a sort of a blueprint for 3D action games.

They don’t need to aspire to the same ideals. If there are similarities, they probably stem from the fact that The Legend of Zelda became a sort of textbook for 3D action games.

Dark Souls 3 is the last game in the Souls franchise, and From Software has made it clear that Dark Souls 3’s DLCs will be the end of the franchise. However, the possibility of a sequel is still open but fans will most likely see HD Remakes of older games.

Ashes Of Ariandel is the first of the two DLCs planned to be released for Dark Souls 3, which will be available on 25 October, 2016 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
