However, Dark Souls could achieve these honorable awards thanks to all who played it. As the director of Dark Souls and on behalf of FromSoftware, Inc., I am grateful to all of you. Keeping the fans’ voices and this nomination in mind, I promise to all our fans to create more enjoyable and valuable games. I would appreciate it if fans support Dark Souls and FromSoftware, Inc.”.
