Dark Souls creator wins Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2018 Golden Joystick Awards

Hidetaka Miyazaki has taken home this year's Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Joystick Awards. Miyazaki has worked on numerous titles throughout his career, but perhaps none more well-known or applauded than Dark Souls. Miyazaki's acceptance speech for the award can be found below.

It’s such a surprise and an honor to receive this prestigious Golden Joystick Award. I’m quite humbled. This award is not just my award. It goes out to everyone who has worked with me over the years making games, everyone who has shared this passion with me, and so I want to thank again everyone who has collaborated with From Software and everyone in From Software, our publishers, thanks again for everything. Thank you to my family for all of their support, and more than anything, thank you to the players, everyone who has played, enjoyed, and appreciated my games.

It’s thanks to you, all the players, that I have been able to carry on making games with the one simple goal of making games that are interesting. And I am so glad to have been able to make games in these exciting times with all of you.

I plan to carry on making games as long as I am able, and I will do my very best to make sure that they’re games that you will enjoy, so thank you for your continued support in advance.

And, coming up very soon, we have Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which is due to be launched in March, so you can look forward to that.
