Dark Souls is on X1 for over 2 years. No point in buying a lazy remaster

I wonder what the Switch version will sell. If they get it out in a reasonable timeframe, it should be able to muster a bit better than what the Xbox got here, but if they delay it for like a whole year or something I think everyone will lose interest.

It's still scheduled to come out sometime this summer so it won't be too much longer (assuming it doesn't get delayed again lol).
