Namco Bandai Will Make An Announcement About Dark Souls 2’s ‘Downgrade-ation’ Next Week

There is no doubt – at this point – that the retail version of Dark Souls 2 looks awful and lacks the lighting system that was advertised when the game was original advertised. In fact, we’ve been saying how horrible the game was looking on our galleries, but that’s irrelevant at this point. Thankfully, Namco Bandai will make an announcement about this whole thing really soon.

NeoGAF tried to pressure Namco’s PR and according to ‘jschreier’, Namco PR is working with Japan in hopes of saying something next week.

“In case anyone’s curious, Namco PR told me today that they’re working with Japan in hopes of saying something next week. It’ll be on Kotaku whenever I get it.”

NeoGAF also aims to find out whether the PC version will also be downgraded or not.

Here is hoping that Namco will justify its decision of using an inferior lighting system, and that the PC version will not be affected by this.

We’ll be sure to keep you posted, so stay tuned for more!
