It’s time to put our rumour hats on once again, folks, as reports suggest that a Dark Souls II port could well be in the works for Nintendo Switch.

Dark Souls news has been flying around left, right, and centre over the last few days, with the Switch version of Dark Souls: Remasteredgetting a confirmed release date of 19th October, and then a new Dark Souls Trilogybeing announced for other platforms that just so happens to be launching on the exact same day. Some Switch fans have been left rather annoyed by this, believing that other consoles are receiving a far superior product, but it seems that Nintendo’s console might end up seeing more than just the first game after all.

Rumours are now pointing towards Bandai Namco being hard at work on porting Dark Souls II to Switch. The information comes from LeakyPandy who claims to have received information from a source working at the publisher. LeakyPandy says that the sequel is already being worked on, with Dark Souls: Remastered acting “as a springboard to maximise efficiency” in its development.

Other information provided suggests that there is “no word” on Dark Souls III coming to the console – although, being a newer, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One title, we imagine a port of this would be trickier to pull off – and that Bandai Namco doesn’t consider the simultaneous October launch to be an issue. Instead, the trilogy is seen as a “repackaging of existing products” that is not in any competition with the Switch remaster.

As ever, we’d advise you to take this rumour with a small bucket of salt; until the news is officially confirmed, there is no way to know for sure whether or not we’ll see the game on Switch.

In the meantime, though, feel free to let us know if you’d like to see the remaining Dark Souls games on Nintendo’s portable console with a comment below.
