Less than a day after the Nintendo Direct trolling, Kotaku UK suggests that we could be getting a teeny Direct sometime today complete with the announcement of Dark Souls on the Switch.
While fans have been clambering for news and begging Bandai Namco to bring Dark Souls to the Switch pretty much since the console proved its worth, there’s one major question that remains to be answered: is it really a good idea?
By that I don’t mean it wouldn’t be fantastic to have the game on the go. As proved with games such as Stardew Valley, one of the Switch’s major benefits is that you can close the console down without having to exit your game, then start it up where you left off. Sheer luxury for such a challenging game without a pause button.
No, my main concern is the frustration factor. When faced with harder elements of gaming there are two types of gamers: the insulters and the destroyers. I, myself, am an insulter. I’ll breathe through every curse word and childish insult I can possibly think of at the time to make myself feel better in times of fury.
The destroyers, however, are the gamers that squeeze controllers, bash keyboards, throw phones across the room, or lash out. Considering the Switch’s teeny Joy-Cons and glorious, portable nature, I’d be surprised if there weren’t a few incidents waiting to happen.
What do you guys think? If this rumour proves true today, would you want Dark Souls on the Switch? Let us know in the comments below.
