    So many rumors and so many denials, it's nice to see it's actually true. Definitely a pre-order for me, portable Souls will be nice.

    Can't wait for 15fps Blighttown in portable mode though ;O;

    WOW another OLD port from the last.... last generation, now i also know its getting a remaster for the PS4/XBX1...... but we all know the switch can only dream of running anything close to these, so it will likely be a beefed up PS3/360 port.

    Again as mentioned (which the fans hate) nintendo always seem to get third party support by porting the titles it failed to offer first time round...... yea wow its portable, so fucking what, been there done that, it could suck my shlong while im on the shitter, yes its a good game.

    I guess its great to be able to play these type of games they slated when nintendo wasnt getting them.

    I bet all the games they slate now, come 7 years theyll be excited when nintendo finally gets it.

    Let's all dance the dance of triumph, the Switch is getting another PS360 port, the PS4/XBO will never recover. :V On a serious note, it's a good game that many Nintendo fans might've missed out on, but I'd be happier with the complete trilogy.

    Any confirmation on if this will be on pc too? I will buy it on switch day 1, but I use an alternate control scheme and Id rather have a version where I can keep using that scheme in addition to having it portable on switch

    Well... I guess I might give it a shot and play the game that, according to the internet, it's like every other game ever made.

    It will be popular as hell. They might release sequels after this. Can't wait!

    You don't essentially need to according to Team Executer. Only if you're solely relying on a soft-mod.

    I don't own a Switch yet, but I intend to at some point this year. I'd just prefer that Nintendo weren't looking to past games because they're not as requirement heavy and will run well on the system. It feels like what the PS4 was doing when it initially came out i.e. retreading the past.
