From Software Discusses The Possibility of a Demon's Souls Remaster

While speaking to GameInformer about Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, From Software president Hidetaka Miyazaki discussed his thoughts on a possible Demon's Souls remaster following the success of Dark Souls: Remastered last year.

Hidetaka Miyazaki was the director of the PS3 game that essentially started the Souls franchise, and in this interview he reveals that it's not something he's personally keen to return to.

“It’s like when you write – when you’re younger, you look back on [previous work] and you think ‘Oh, goodness what was I thinking,’” he says. “It’s not that I’m embarrassed, I just don’t like to look at my previous works.”
He also revealed that it would be Sony's call regardless. Hidetaka is not opposed to another studio taking up the mantle though, as long as that studio could prove they had a lot of love for the game and could give it the remaster it deserves.

"Thinking about the idea of a remaster gives me kind of butterflies in my stomach and makes me a little nervous, so it’s complicated. But I understand there are many users and many players and fans out there who really love Demon’s, so if that’s something they could accomplish with a studio that loved the work, then yeah, I’d be okay with that.”
With the success of the Dark Souls remaster and the community vigil when the PS3 title's servers were switched off, the idea of giving Demon's Souls a new home certainly must be on some Sony executive's mind. With Hidetaka Miyazaki's tacit approval out in the press, perhaps it's something we will see in the near future.
