From Software has experienced a renaissance since the Dark Souls series captured widespread attention, but the studio's been around for decades. A recent video highlights its past work – including the King's Field and Armored Core series – and offers a tiny fragment of tantalizing info about its next project.

The video below, found by Reddit user 113mac113, concludes with a slide calling out what's called simply "Next Title." That's all there is, other than a list of supported platforms, and that's where it gets interesting. In addition to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, it calls out the upcoming PlayStation VR peripheral. (Note: The image above is from Dark Souls III, not this upcoming title.)

It's barely a nugget of information, but it does indicate support for the device, which is set for an October release.

Our Take
We've seen more than a few minigame collections and tech demos in the nascent VR space, but hopefully this is a game that has some actual meat on its bones. The From Software name alone is encouraging, as is the fact that the game is being developed for multiple platforms, which aren't necessarily able to lean on the VR gimmick.
