A recent sixty hour live play session of Dark Souls was organised at Nico Nico Douga in Japan, which reached a 2.3 million viewer count.
The special broadcast conducted by technology site Gadget Tsuushin started off on the 3rd January at noon and ended on the 6th January at 53 minutes past midnight. CEO of Nico Nico operator Niwando played through the game twice. It’s just that good, but very difficult in some stages.The final statistics for the broadcast were 2,317,881 viewers and 3,647,746 comments. It should of course be noted that the viewership figure is not a unique visitor figure but a cumulative figure incremented whenever someone new comes into the viewing room.
