A petition imploring Namco Bandai to publish 2011’s hit RPG Dark Souls on the PC was recently launched, and it has gathered a lot of support- 66,000 people have signed it till now. This has obviously grabbed the attention of Namco, and they say that a PC port of Dark Souls is definitely a possibility. The future, though, they say, is in your hands.
“I honestly wasn’t expecting such a massive support,” a Namco Bandai forums admin said. “
My boss(es) even came to talk to me about this, after it explodes all around the world. If you wanted to have the attention of Namco Bandai Games, now you have it.
“The future is in your hands, and I hope you will keep supporting this. I make a personal objective to make sure every relevant people in Namco Bandai Games is in touch with this formidable effort.”
The petition says: “
A port of this game has a high chance of being extremely successful for From Software and Namco Bandai. Given the sales of games such as The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and The Witcher, there is a large market for games like this. PC gamers love unforgiving, hardcore games.
“A port may also mean that the area’s in the game, such as Blighttown, won’t suffer from slowdown. An online oriented video game is also perfect for the capabilities of a PC. Steam would also be suitable venue provided the game is sold at a reasonable price for a late port. Steamworks could provide a strong and easy to use online infrastructure.”
