Darkest Dungeon Developers Give a "Vaguely Affirming" Response to Whether There Will be a Switch Version

A response equivalent to a shrug emoji mixed with a winking emoji.

Darkest Dungeon is a popular fantasy RPG that's... well, dark. Developer Red Hook studios is deeply committed to a brutal vision of the classic fantasy genre, but is a Switch version in the cards for the terribly unforgiving dungeon crawler? In a Reddit AMA hosted by the studio's two co-founders, the creators basically give a pretty wink, wink, nudge, nudge answer regarding a potential version of their game on the Switch. That is to say: maybe?

Yesterday, Red Hook Studios co-founders Tyler Sigman (Game Design Director) and Chris Bourassa (Creative Director) went to Reddit to host an AMA in honor of the launch of Darkest Dungeon's first DLC "The Crimson Court". Along with questions about future installments and mod support, one user asked whether or not there will be a Switch version of the game. Rather than respond with usual company lines about potential ports, Chris Bourassa responded with: "[INSERT VAGUELY AFFIRMING NONCOMMITTAL ANSWER HERE]”

Now that's a pretty vaguely affirming answer. Red Hook Studios did answer in the AMA that a tablet version is "extremely high" so there's definitely talks of portable versions of Darkest Dungeon currently taking place (Darkest Dungeon is already available on the PS Vita).

USgamer awarded Darkest Dungeon a 4.5/5 with our review saying, " Its presentation is brilliant, its systems are smart and well-constructed, and it does a lot to subvert what we should expect from the average dungeon crawler."

You can purchase Darkest Dungeon on PC, PS4, and Vita.
