lately i have been playing a lot of Dark Souls

It made me realize that I would like a game like that (hardcore, medieval, action/RPG) on the go. Anyone know of a series that falls under any of these categories coming to the 3DS or out on the DS?

I think Monster Hunter is the closest thing you can get for a portable Dark Souls.

^ This.

Also, it sucks that I won't be able to play Dark Souls anytime soon because I just bought a new PC and my gaming budget is tiny.

Play games, not systems. There are people who like games that you don't, grow up.

Was gonna include that but there is no say as to it being localized. And yes that game falls perfectly under that category.

I'd love a Souls game on 3DS, though it would own my life.

Will the cartridge be able to handle it? The Souls worlds are pretty huge.

Maybe not as big, but if Xenoblade happened on Wii, I can see a decently sized Souls game on 3DS. Not happening, though, it would hit Vita first I think.

Well, with downscaling and good compression I can see it on an 8GB cart.

Dark Souls is less than 5 GB. The 3DS can't handle textures of that resolution, so lowering it would already save A LOT of space. Sound can be downscaled as well. It should be able to fit on a 2 GB cart just fine.

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.

Yeah, but it wouldn't be the same quality game. The sound especially, adds alot to the atmosphere of the game, which is an extremely important aspect of what makes DS great.
