"Yes, Miyazaki is directing [Dark Souls 3]," he said. "Excited to start showing it off and pumped for the story elements."
Miyazaki's involvement in Dark Souls 3 had been unclear up until now. Having headed-up the creation of Demon's Souls and the first Dark Souls, he served only in a supervisory capacity on Dark Souls 2, with Yui Tanimura and Tomohiro Shibuya co-directing the game.
Fans of the Souls series are quick to point out that his absence was felt on Dark Souls 2. A common criticism of the sequel is that it was missing "the Miyazaki touch."
Earlier eports of Miyazaki's involvement seemed to clash with Sony Worldwide Studios' Shuhei Yoshida confirmation that a Bloodborne DLC expansion pack is in development.
Prior to the official announcement of a new Dark Souls, it was unclear whether Miyazaki would be involved with the Bloodborne expansion. Or if, as the rumour suggested, he had moved on to a new project.
Dark Souls 3 was officially confirmed and shown during Microsoft's E3 press conference. Bandai Namco has confirmed Dark Souls 3 is coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC, which is why Microsoft didn't tout it as an exclusive during its briefing.
