It'll be 2.5 years between the releases of Dark Souls & Dark Souls 2. The fandom has nearly exhausted the secrets & strategies of Dark Souls, and much of Dark Souls 2's appeal comes from awaiting a new, unknown world. But does it have to be completely new? Majora's Mask and Zelda 64: Master Quest got a lot of mileage out of reusing Zelda 64's assets, and I think From Software could do something similar with Dark Souls: release a remixed version before the next true sequel with just enough changes to surprise the fans. They could tweak the attack patterns, the enemy positions, the locations of secrets, the mechanics, even a few things about the locations and story itself, and provide a similar feeling of discovery at the fraction of the time & cost.
Do you think such remixes would strengthen or weaken the Souls brand?
