    KADOKAWA€ƒ•ƒ*ƒ*ƒ‚ƒ•ƒˆ‚‚‚‚’ƒˆƒƒ‚‚‚ƒ‚‚ˆ‚Š買Ž €’川‚ƒƒ*‚とと‚‚に‚ƒƒƒ—の**‚ƒƒ*企*と—て •–‹へ | Social Game Info

    for those not in the know, there's a huge publishing company called Kadokawa Shoten in japan, they publish alot of anime/movies/games/manga/books/etc. in japan.

    the game side of their department is Kadokawa games

    Kadokawa Games (Company) - Giant Bomb


    this company doesn't like to publish in the west at all. If their games do get published in the west, it's from a third party (lollipop chainsaw was published by Warner Bros, for example) so unless the companies games have mass appeal, you will never see them in the west.

    demon/dark souls was born out of niche fanbase, so you can see why this is a big deal.

    That's very true, but as you're aware, it has become a global phenomon (whether that's good or bad depends on your point of view), so I don't see it affecting the Souls series, if there are any further sequels. But I get your point--this may preclude having another Souls-type situation where a game goes mainstream, but started as a "grassroots" type thing.
