Takeshi Miyazoe has added more comments in regards to the PC version of the upcoming multiplatform software product, “Dark Souls 2.” According to a report from the Games On website on Dec. 21, the producer disclosed that the PC port of the first game was rushed as the development team wanted to release the software product as soon as possible.

Takeshi Miyazoe promised that the same problem won’t be occurring in “Dark Souls 2.” From Software developed the PC version of the sequel at the very start along with the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 iterations. You can find some screenshots showcasing the open-world action role-playing game in the slideshow to the left of this article and his statement below (courtesy of Edge Online and Games On):

For Dark Souls 2 we are developing on PC from the beginning. We realise what PC games typically require, and I can assure you that the PC version of Dark Souls 2 will be a good PC experience for PC gamers.

The producer went on to disclose that computer players have to option to choose either the game pad or the keyboard and mouse for controlling the software product. He personally recommends the controller, however, as he described himself as more of a console gamer. You can check out his comments below:

The current plan is [to allow] players to choose whether they want to use keyboard and mouse or a controller. Both options will be available. Me being a console gamer and not a PC gamer, I would recommend a controller, but if you’re a PC gamer I’m sure you’d have a different opinion.

“Dark Souls 2” is coming out first for the two current-generation consoles on March 11, 2014. PC players will have to wait sometime later in the same launch month in order to get their hands on the open-world action role-playing video game.
