You died. Those two little words plague millions of people worldwide courtesy of the Dark Souls videogame series. However, despite it being a trilogy, there’s only one of these titles on Switch, and to me, this is outrageous. If Switch fans are to truly understand the suffering one goes through as a SoulsBorne fan, they must journey through Drangleic, a once majestic kingdom that’s fallen to a curse.
I think I speak for all Dark Souls fans when I say that Dark Souls 2 is the worst one, and that’s precisely why it should be on Switch. No, it’s not because I think those that enjoy Nintendo’s console deserve unending suffering (though I can’t deny that might be part of it), but more because people beat the first game and then assume they know everything that the series has to offer. Well, I’m here to say you don’t. You think BlightTown, the catacombs, and Tomb of the Giants are bad? You haven’t seen anything yet.
Before I go any further, I have to say I do actually like Dark Souls 2 and consider it to be a very good title, it just so happens to be the weakest of the SoulsBorne games, but that doesn’t detract from the fact that it deserves its time in the sun on Switch. In fact, the title is the perfect fit for the platform. From a technical standpoint, it’s not too different to that of its predecessor, so you know the port would be solid. Not only that but considering the fact it’s a guaranteed money maker, Bandai and FromSoft’s decision not to put it on Nintendo’s console is quite baffling.
