While there is no particular secret behind the director’s brilliance in producing games, it ultimately all comes down to all the experience he has built over the years, as well as perfectly knowing what his audience really wants.

How Hidetaka Miyazaki Has Perfected His Craft Over Time

“For these people to put so much time into my games and really discuss things that I’ve created with such passion… I’ll go online and enjoy reading what they have to say. Of course, sometimes there are things that are not so enjoyable to read – but even taking that on board, over all I take great pleasure in their comments. As a creator it’s such a valuable resource, to listen to their honest feedback and think about what game I’m going to make next. You couldn’t go out there and pay people money to put in the hours that these people do!”

To the surprise of many, the director disclosed how it is the comments made by players on the internet that allow him to take direct feedback and work on things that need to be reworked. Miyazaki also mentioned how these comments are a valuable resource, and implements their feedback into his future work.

This interview was held nearly a decade ago, but the formula evidently remains the same, as testified by the immense success of Hidetaka Miyazaki’s latest title, Elden Ring. Likewise, many believe the upcoming Shadow of the Erdtree is going to be the director’s best work yet, something which the director has implied himself.
