Dark Souls “Easy” Mode Was a “Mistranslation”
After earlier reports of Miyazaki considering an easy mode for Dark Souls, it seems the quote was actually a mistranslation.
According to Namco, ”This fact is really sad to me and I am thinking about whether I should prepare another difficulty that everyone can complete or carefully send all gamers the messages behind our difficult games.” should actually read as ”This fact is really sad to me and I am thinking about how to make everyone complete the game while maintaining the current difficulty and carefully send all gamers the messages behind it.”
While the two translations are pretty similar, they paint completely different images. This should come as a relief to fans of the series, though it will be interesting to see if anything comes of this.
