Everyone has this Elden Ring boss that they really enjoyed battling against, even if they kept kicking your butt, including game director and CEO of From Software, Hidetaka Miyazaki.
According to a new Xbox Wire Japan blog post, his favorite boss is Starscourge Radahn IGN. The famed director cites Radahn’s seductive design as a character in The Lands Between and the festival surrounding him as the reason for this.
“It’s hard to decide, but I have to say Radahn,” said Miyazaki. “As an individual character, he’s really alluring, and I really like the situation at the Radahn Festival. There is a literal sense of celebration and exuberance, but also a unique air of sadness and loneliness.”
He said when he first raised the idea of Radahn and his festival, “nobody on the team took it seriously,” which is especially funny considering this boss is Miyazaki’s favorite. He added that his next favorite bosses after Radahn are Godrick, the Grafted and Rykard, Lord of Blasphemy. He also said that one of his favorite designs out of everything in the game is Caria Manor’s 12-finger hand spiders, because of course (they still give me the Heebie-Jeebies).
“Spider Hand is one of my favorite designs,” Miyazaki said in the Xbox Wire Japan post. “It’s something you don’t even want to look at because it’s so awful. I wonder if the way to overcome your problem is to face it head-on and beat it.”
I was more of an “Oh, there’s a handspin thing, so I’m turning around now” type of player.
