Namco Bandai Plans Dark Souls Announcement
According to a short news item on Game Informer today, Namco Bandai is planning to announce something about Dark Souls in the near future. There are two main possibilities: DLC, which has been rumored to exist ever since developers From Software registered a trademark for something called “Yami no Mori” (“Dark Forest,” in English). Or, more excitingly, a PC version of the game.
An online petition supporting the PC cause currently has just a hair over 90,000 signatures. Namco have responded cagily, but they haven’t exactly ruled the possibility out, either. The prospect of a PC version of one of the best games of 2011 certainly has fans salivating.
As soon as the announcement happens, we’ll have the news up on Game Front. Praise the sun!
UPDATE: Namco are hyping their Dark Souls announcement by asking you to “like” the Dark Souls Facebook page. Sharp-eyed fans have also spotted this page from the current issue of PC PowerPlay magazine, which teases their next issue. Judging from the text, and the font, that issue might well contain news about a Dark Souls PC version. Stay tuned!
