While Dark Souls, Demon’s Souls and Bloodborne creator Hidetaka Miyazaki is sort of busy with Dark Souls III, that’s not stopping the From Software president from looking to the future, beyond the Souls series, even.

According to an interview between Miyazaki and Gamespot, Dark Souls III is just the “turning point” in the franchise, and will essentially set up something entirely new.

“Dark Souls is my life’s work,” he replied when asked if he’d expand the Souls franchise into other genres, like fantasy or sci-fi. “Everything I came up with for Dark Souls 3 is based on my personal preferences. However, Dark Souls 3 is also actually the turning point for the franchise.”

Here’s where things get really interesting – when he was pressed further into talking on other genres and maybe applying the “Souls framework” to them, Miyazaki said that he “definitely wants to bring the Miyazaki Touch” to them.

Finally, Miyazaki talked up his role supervising games within From Software as president, saying that he plans on launching “several new projects,” but wasn’t keen on naming which games to expect. “I do want to work on something new,” he added. “I’m pleased to hear people are interested in seeing that.”
