Dark Souls PC port petition nears 40,000 signatures

Namco Bandai's call for a show of support for a PC port of masochistic RPG Dark Souls had drawn massive interest.

At time of writing, nearly 40,000 foolhardy adventurers have put their name to a petition asking for From Software's epic to reach PC.

The petition was organised in response to a Namco Bandai staff member's comment that "to make things happen, let's say the demand has to be properly done" with the suggestion that someone should "make a successful petition".

"When the number of people who actually sign it is low, this turn[s it into] a joke," the administrator - who goes by the name shoupinou - continued.

"But when it starts to involve thousand(s) people, then it's another story. Honestly, I think this is an interesting request and that it deserves to be pushed.

"Namco have no position for now on this topic: PC versions are considered for many games but as PC is rarely the lead platform for the games released by the company, making PC version very often depends on signs that could come from users or from market globally. Up to you."

Dark Souls, follow up to PlayStation 3 exclusive Demon's Souls, released on PS3 and Xbox 360 in October 2011. The RPG was highly favoured by critics and charted strongly; although sales figures haven't been released, Namco Bandai had shipped 1.5 million copies worldwide by early November.

Thanks, Talkar.
