As many people know Dark Souls is one of the most popular Action-RPG titles of the 10’s decade. Since release back in 2011 Dark Souls has been praised by many critics for its visuals, gameplay and level design while being a challenging and seemingly unforgiving RPG which added to its overall replay value. Since its initial release for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 in ’11 the game has been ported to various game consoles such as the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and even the Nintendo Switch this year. For whatever reason the original Dark Souls was never ported for the Nintendo Wii back in the early 10’s which made people question how well it could have done in both theory and practice.
Its quite possible that a Wii version of Dark Souls would have been inferior in terms of quality compared to what we saw on the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 which is why Namco Bandi Games never made a reality. Also, first party games that were more family oriented and appealed to kids such as Zelda: Twilight Princess, Super Mario 3D World, Kirby’s Return to Wonderland and others could have definitely overshadowed Dark Souls on the Nintendo Wii during the early 10’s. While a Wii version of Dark Souls could have sold at least 250,000 units worldwide in the early 10’s is doubtful that it would reached the one million mark or have surpassed any other version of the game in sales.
