    I wonder if the Switch version will outsell the PS4/XBO versions?! If the port is good, I'd absolutely buy it on Switch but would have zero interest on the other 2 consoles.

    Really looking forward to it though, never played it originally.

    Same here. Gaming journo I follow on Twitter raves about the series but it’s not the kind of game I have the time to play on my Xbox due to lack of screen time. On the Switch however. Hmmm.

    I got as far as Blight Town but then got distracted by Bloodborne and my PS4, I always wanted to go back but the 360 has been long packed away. This will be the perfect excuse to go back, plus I can play it on my lunch break, can't wait!

    Yes there is co op and invasions. Co op you lay down markers to summon or be summoned by other players. General rule is your within 10 levels of each other (I think) invasions you can enter someone's game and try and kill them :)

    Original souls trailers for those who may not have seen them before.

    How easy is it to coop with a friend?
    I take it you can’t create a lobby and work through level by level together?

    It can be a pain to be honest. No you can't do the lobby thing. Your best looking online on YouTube or just Google to get a better explanation of how it works.

    I’m always tempted by these games, even though I’m extremely confident I’ll hate them. As mentioned above, the fact that it can be played in handheld mode might be the factor that finally makes me take the plunge

    Honestly I tried playing this on my Xbox one and couldn’t get past the first boss you come across, one hit and your toast. I won’t say anything more but those that have played it will know what I’m talking about. I had to google it and couldn’t believe I had been so stupid!

    Quick tip: wrap your Switch in bubble wrap before playing this game, obviously make sure you cut open the vents so the thing can breath :rotfl:

    I've never played but from my understanding is mostly about dying over and over again.

    Its live right now in UK :)

    Been playing it and really like it so far (never really played it back in the day). Defo a purchase for me - £26 from South Africa too.

    Using the "B" button to select things is just wrong though! Apparently they've said it will be remappable in the full release.

    I’m in the same position. Quite tempted by it. But with RDR2 a week away, might wait and see if it ends up in a sale.
