Just about a week ago, Namco-Bandai community manager Shoupinou told Dark Souls fans via the Namco-Bandai forum that if they wanted Dark Souls to be ported over to the PC, the best way to get Namco-Bandai’s attention would be to petition.
Sure enough, Dark Souls fans united and put together a petition with the Bureau of Petitions. The results were amazing.
In just a week, the petition has gained over 65,000 signatures. According to Shoupinou, who instigated the petition:
“I honestly wasn’t expecting such massive support. My boss(es) even came to talk to me about this after it exploded all around the world. If you wanted to have the attention of Namco Bandai Games, now you have it.
“The future is in your hands and I hope you will keep supporting this. I will make a personal objective to make sure every relevant person at Namco Bandai Games is in touch with this formidable effort.”
I don’t think you can ignore 65,000 signatures, much less 65,000 signatures in a week. That can hardly be shrugged off as a few individuals who want the PC port. Hopefully, if all goes well, Namco-Bandai gets its head screwed on straight and we’ll see plans for a Dark Souls PC port in a few months.
