Beginning with “Demon’s Souls”, the consistently high-difficulty game design continues to fascinate fans and continues to break new ground as a genre. Their latest work, “ELDEN RING,” is a culmination of their previous work, achieving quality and volume that greatly surpasses their previous works, and has received extremely high praise from users all over the world and has become a huge hit. He has won numerous awards, and his titles have attracted attention not only from game fans but also from game creators.from the CESA statement
