I would like to use this opportunity to give my thanks to all our fans who have brought Elden Ring, into their gaming life. I am very proud to have been involved in bringing such a wonderful and fantastic game to life with FromSoftware, under the guidance of Director Miyazaki, and with George R. R. Martin.
Much effort was placed into creating Elden Ring so that we could exceed the expectations of our fans worldwide. In like manner, we will continue our efforts in expanding the brand beyond the game itself, and into everyone’s daily life.
We will continue to create enjoyment and fulfillment through entertainment, so that we can come closer and connect to our fans around the world.
