You could read it two ways I suppose.|
One way could be Namco thinking, "Hmm, he's done well with those games, let's get him to do Project X and see how he does with that, and backfill the souls games to these 2 guys here"
Or you could read it being, "We need to make it like Skyrim, so everyone buys it, and not make it too hard to alienate casual players." To which Miyazaki says, "Fuck that, that's bollocks". And he gets shoved to one side by the board.
Shrug, fuck knows really.
