Dark Souls PC rekindled with 4K remaster

This is also the first time ever that a Dark Souls game is being made available for a Nintendo platform, but it also marks the first time that the original game will also be made available for the PS4 and Xbox One. Although it is not a new entry into the series, the remaster will bring a lot of updates and quality of life changes for the current generation of consoles. The Switch's GPU is created to give games a much brighter and more vibrant look compared to the PS4 and Xbox One counterparts, so it will be interesting to see how a game as dark as Dark Souls looks on the Switch when it arrives on May 25th. Dark Souls Remastered will include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC from the start, as well as an increased resolution and framerate. As a single player game, Dark Souls presents a tight and polished experience with the player constantly chasing that new piece of loot, or that next soul level, or the next boss battle. Some reports began circulating, misinforming original game owners that they would be entitled to special treatment when purchasing the remaster, but it turns out these reports were wrong.

Bandai Namco has confirmed that Dark Souls Remastered is being released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 25.

The games included are the recently announced Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls II: Scholar Of The First Sin, and Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades Edition.

This is just one of many games revealed on today's Nintendo Mini Direct. The Switch version will run at a 1080p/30fps in docked mode and 720p/30fps in handheld mode.

But the ability to play Dark Souls on-the-go is already a pretty strong selling point.

According to the publisher, Dark Souls: Remastered for the Switch will run at 1080p 30fps.

Hopefully, the PC version won't be so rough around the edges as the original release was, which had to be fixed up for the most part by modders.
