Steve Bitto posted a article in SonyFrom Software and Sony Japan Studio may be working on a project for the Playstation 4. Screenshots leaked on NeoGAF show a previously unannounced game tentatively titled Project Beast. The screens are dark and somewhat blurry but display a cemetery and other Gothic settings. Outside of a beastly dog looking creature not much more can be seen in the photos. The individual who leaked the screenshots also mentioned shotgun wielding and "a huge pyromancy fireball". More information on Project Beast is expected to come at Sony's E3 press conference, that is, if the rumors are true. It is also unclear if Kadokawa's recent acquisition of From Software could influence the future of the project. Game Podunk will bring you the latest from the pre-E3 rumor mill over the next few weeks. Could this be connected to Demon's Souls which is a Sony owned IP? Source: NeoGAF
It has been reported by Siliconera that the developer From Software has been purchased by Japanese publisher Kadokawa. From Software is popular for developing such series as King's Field, Armored Core and Demon's/Dark Souls. According to a Japanese business report, Kadokawa's acquisition will give them 80% of stock in the developer. The purchase will be completed on May 21, 2014. The CEO of From Software, Naotoshi Zin, stated, "With a new system, from this point on, I believe we'll be able to make newer and more in depth games." Poor translation aside, this means From Software will have more resources to make better games. With Dark Souls II sitting at 92 on Metacritic, that is an exciting proposition.
