Dark Souls on Switch takes everything great about the game and repackages it on a handheld device with some tiny performance-related caveats. The world design is second to none, and the game’s intertwining stories come together in a way that From Software—and its imitators—have failed to match. I continue to experience and find new things hidden away in Lordran’s darkest corners, and the Switch version lets me do that on the bus.
To this day, Dark Souls remains a watershed moment for the action-RPG genre. Getting to re-experience many of the game's most nerve-wracking and iconic moments can be satisfying in its own right, but coupled with the Switch's flexible playstyle, this equally haunting and triumphant game becomes an even more involved journey.
Just make sure you don’t make faces and noises (like I did) when playing it in public spaces, although I caught some people looking at my Switch with great interest while I played on my way to work. The bottom line, I approve and recommend Dark Souls on Nintendo Switch for old and new players. It has perspective, charm and really looks fantastic.
