With the japanese version of Dark Souls III releasing 21 days before the rest of the world, many players are importing the game, even with none or very little knowledge of japanese.
This mini-guide will help you navigate the game menus and interact with NPCs. For detailed guides, use our Japanese wiki, which will be linking to English counterversions as available.
If you never played the japanese version of a game before, then you will find out that on Playstation systems the "X" and "O" buttons are switched. For some players this is a non-issue, for others this is a total nightmare. Ususally there is no option to switch them in Japanese games, we will confirm this when the game releases, if this is an issue for you, then you always have the option to switch the buttons in the PS4 settings, inside the Accessibility menu.
To change the key mapping on PS4
- Setting Menu
- Button Assignments
- Enable Custome Button Assignments (Checkmark)
- Once you put the checkmark there will be a new option called: Customize Button Assignments
- You are now able to make all changes needed. Don't forget to confirm changes.
