To everyone who was going to buy the switch version, don’t just buy the PS4 or PC version on may 25th instead just because the game was delayed. Be patient.

Will be worth it if they make it 60 fps

I started my Dark Souls adventure in the second game and went to the third game afterwards. I have not actually played the first game. I should have but I have pre-ordered my copy for the switch at GameStop so whenever it releases, gonna pop that bad boy in and have a grand ol time.

They wouldn't push it back to September, especially if their plan is to drop Smash with the internet service. Having Dark Souls there too might split sales between the two when they could both easily make their own banks worth of money separately.

Switch is portable and I can play Hyrule warriors untill it is released.

Seems Nintendo has still some kind of quality assurance. Nowadays not a common thing.

I don't want a stupid remaster that will look like the PC version with mods. I want a remake of the first and second that plays and looks like the third

What!!!!!! Booooooo!!!! Lol. Hopefully it doesn’t get delayed again
noddypeak (29 days ago)
For what we've seen is a glorified port and it's more expensive, so really it feels disrespectful when they don't even give a proper explanation as to why this delay is happening, and keeping a summer release date as vague as it can be doesn't really make this situation better.

This is getting to be a real problem. We’re starting to go beyond the point of calling this crap just a little irritating. The whole concept of the switch is to sell me a game system that I can play at home or take with me, and still play all the same games. Well that concept is great and all, but it becomes stupid when all the games aren’t there. Without the games, what’s the point of a portable console? If a game is coming out on all major platforms, but the switch version is delayed a year or more and still costs the same... then there’s no appeal to buy the switch version. You would literally be paying full price for an inferior version of a game that came out last year. You could probably buy the game for half that and get the better version at that time. So it begs to question- how long will Nintendo contours this shit? How can you sell your system by its concept when the games are all inferior versions and take ages to release? If a game comes out on say October 17th, and the switch version is delayed a year or more on a “tba” release date... who the hell waits an indefinite amount of time for an inferior copy of a game, when you could buy the superior version of the game anywhere else on launch day? Nintendo needs to get their shit together. They had a pretty good first year with the switch (should’ve been better, but it was okay). Now all of a sudden the second year is dry as can be. There’s not gonna be any major, original content on the switch until fall at the earliest, and it could be even later. The E-Shop is getting flooded with garbage indies just like steam. We’re still waiting on the port of wolfenstein 2, which still doesn’t even have a solid release window. Now dark souls is getting pushed till summer at least, and it might get still get pushed again to September at the earliest (provided the damn online service actually launches in September), if Nintendo decides to link their DS Remastered port to their paid online service. So, now huge third party titles, that could be the saving grace for Nintendo during this drought of games, is pushed back. This is absolutely unacceptable. These long ass dry periods need to stop. No more waiting most of the year for any good content to make its way to the switch. No more waiting for major 3rd party titles to launch well beyond the point where interest in the game is lost. No more announcing games that won’t see gameplay or even a trailer for a year or two after the announcement.... let alone an actual release window. And Nintendo needs to reprice their games. Everything is way too expensive for what it is. Bayonetta games should be $20 a piece TOPS. Dark souls remastered should be $30 TOPS. Many of these indie games, even though they’re very good, only have ~ 3hrs of gameplay.. and they cost upwards of $15-$20. That’s absurd! They want $60 for DK tropical freeze. What?! That game is old and is nothing but a slightly enhanced Wii U port. Again with the overpricing. So far, Mario odyssey and Zelda botw are the only only games genuinely worth their price.

Can I hold out until the Summer? I want to use the amiibo but it seems it only gives you a gesture which you can get early on anyway.

Dark Souls got delayed on the Switch because of it's crappy hardware lol. Just look here for an idea of how drastic the situation is for third-party support on the Switch. My PS4 collection literally buries my Switch games alive! And it's all your fault because you don't demand better from Nintendo, you fanboys are content with meritocracy.

2018 has been a huge let down.. yes the switch has sold pretty well but if it keeps going like this we could have another dust gathering indie machine on our hands.
Chris Gennusa (1 month ago)
Nooooooooo indeed. Since I've played it on PC and I'm still currently half way through DS3 I think I'll wait for switch for the portability
Greasy (1 month ago)
Nintendo announced this game. The amiibo is coming to the system. Yet Nintendo is the only one with the delay. This is only a month before the release which is the most painful part, especially considering that its was just showcased at PAX. This delay, especially with no reason given, is unacceptable and I will not support it. This is awful.

Just like with Spyro, they won’t get my money until I get my Switch version. Seems like they’re only doing this for the double-dipper money.

It's getting to the point where everyone is irritated with these delays and late ports, I know it is for good but it has to change soon or people will lose interest in third parties on Switch.
Retro Tech Select (1 month ago)
Here's the question, though: If only the Sony version was struggling to make launch - would they still release the XBO and Switch on "on time" or would the other two get delayed? I think devs are used to Nintendo fans just taking it, and it's kind of unfortunate. If the Switch does overtake the XBO for install base and we hold publishers/devs accountable, maybe things will change.

When games get delayed on ps4 or Xbox one everyone's fine with it, but when the switch gets just one game delayed, everyone loses their minds and the sonygers come up from their basements and start saying shit like "HAHHAHAHAH WII U 2 I CALLED IT!!!DOBFIVIEVJDV*autistic screaming*". Talk about double standards😂

It's the amiibo Remember Nintendo required all third party amiibo costs and production to be taken on by the developer. Bandai Namco has never been one to be good with the toy side of their business.

I'd rather a developer delays and gets things right rather than rush things and end up with a buggy mess. I'm sorry, I do not and cannot share this utterly stupid sentiment that delays are terrible. I have been burned too many times by games being too rushed.
VOMIT THE SOUL (1 month ago)
Woooow! I was rly looking forward to playing ds for the first time, being a father the only time my 1 year old let's me play is if I can play on the go... the tv is all his. As a switch enthusiast this is a huge blow mainly because of the unknown release date. Bullcrap man, I wish the switch had the same release dates. Wolfenstien 2 is just waaaaayyy too far from original launch date. This has to stop or it'll ruin the switch!!

My only current console is the switch and I was going to pick this up when it went on sale and not on day one. I'm not sure if I'll like the title tbh so I can afford to wait. However this is a serious problem for the switch seeing as not all titles are going to be able to be brought over and then the ones that do come are late. A week a month or a few months wait for these games and people with multiple consoles are going to pick up titles on the other consoles and it's going to lead to less ports being brought over.

David Polzin (1 month ago)
This was the only switch game I had on pre-order. Super disappointing, and Nintendo really has to do something to get some of these companies to get launch date releases. I'm almost tempted to cancel pre-order just in protest.
Kilee M (1 month ago)
David Polzin same here there first party is all that’s keeping me from selling my switch
David Polzin (1 month ago)
Kilee M I hear you, I don't like the pricing on a lot of the ports but still picked up a couple because of the portability factor. Generally first year on most consoles are full of ports no matter the system, but getting into second year you should be seeing more new titles or day in date multi releases. I think most of us would like to see more unique third party support than we've been getting. Either way I but nintendo though because I like their first party titles,
Kilee M (1 month ago)
David Polzin I don’t count ports and the switch is selling Skyrim for $60 which is disgraceful
David Polzin (1 month ago)
There are a lot of good games from the first year, but there's not been much lately. Zelda, Mario, Mariokart 8 deluxe. Mario vs Rabids, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Stardew Valley, Overcooked, Skyrim, Rocket League plus a few others can't think of off top of my head is what I have. I just can't help but worry about this years titles, they are going to need to have a killer E3 time to save this year with the 2nd half of the year.
Kilee M (1 month ago)
David Polzin yea I have a PS4 been Sony my whole life and I bought a switch last months only 2 games on it are good after over a year with no friends messages and no virtual console and no internet browser Netflix or YouTube = shitty ass console

MrValkilmer35 (1 month ago)
I probably was going to wait for a sale on Dark Souls because there's quite a few games i'm really hyped for this year--I don't have a budget for games i'm just interested in. Still, this is a big disappointment. I feel like the fact the devs didn't give us a clear reason for the delay is a bad sign. Is getting games day-and-day impossible? Gosh!

J.D. (1 month ago)
Other than portability, what reason would you want to play it on Switch? (assuming you own another console/pc) Also, why in the heck would you push back a single player focused game to make sure the tacked on MP works correctly? Also, I'd get used to Switch games being delayed due to the ARM processor and incompatibility with x86 architecture which every other platform has.

It's really not a big deal overall just this was the one game im looking forward to most, bloodborne is my favorite game ever then I played dark souls 3 after, never got to play dark souls. I'll still be waiting for the switch version instead of buying it on ps4- just can't beat playing large videogames handheld while watching sports. But man, I had that date circled on my calendar

From what we know from PAX, the Switch port seemed to run fine. A lot of people assumed, some jokingly, that Blighttown, an area of Dark Souls notorious of its consistant frame-rate dipping say would run badly, but some people who got ahold of the build so far say it runs fine. Honestly, it could be anything as this game is done by two porting teams: One for the Switch, the other for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Maybe the Switch port team wanted more time to ensure the game works properly, maybe are trying to work with Nintendo's "variable" online servers. We don't know. It kinda leaves a bit of a sour taste that the Switch now has a track record of 3rd party ports coming out later rather than releasing the day they are released in other consoles and PC. As far as I know from what I'm hearing from PAX so far, it seems that people enjoy the Switch port. Besides the sneering of this game being a lazy cashgrab for some, especially for PC owners who the game already and use DS Fix, there seems to be generally positive feedback for the Switch port. (also, using the word "remastered" in the title was a terrible idea) It is on Namco-Bandai to address the specifics of this situation. (I mean, if they do, then you can disregard this sentence)

Is the switch really so hard to develop for? Or are people who only own a switch considered second class citizens so to speak by game developers? I'm starting to feel like it's the latter tbh but I also do not make games for a living.
