Dark Souls To Be Remastered For Switch May 25

Confirmation of Dark Souls Remastered for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions came from a tweet from Bandai Namco.

Earlier today, Nintendo surprised us by revealing that Dark Souls: Remastered is coming to the Switch in May. The game will also include the original DLC as well, meaning players will also get the Artorias of the Abyss DLC included. Dark Souls II was already given the remaster treatment for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 back in 2014, under the subtitle Scholar of the First Sin. This would be the first time a game from the Souls series will be available on the Nintendo console, giving players the opportunity to praise the sun while on the go. Enhancements such as 4K resolution (on PS4 Pro and PC) and 60 FPS, on the other hand, are confirmed.

The game is slated for release later this year, on May 25th for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

A Dark Souls: Remaster has always been something that the community has clamored for, and initial reaction on the internet is incredibly positive.

In an interview in September 2016, a few months after the release of the third and seemingly final instalment in the series, FromSoftware president and director of the first two games, Hidetaka Miyazaki, suggested remasters were in the works.

Dark Souls, an intricate and arcane work of dark fantasy pits players against a world of demonic creatures, is widely regarded as one of the best video games of all time. Finally, PC players have a decent version of the game to look forward to, even though it took close to a decade.

In a report via Polygon Bandai Namco has confirmed the release and as part of the remaster, they have promised to update all the graphics accordingly from the 2011 release. Hidden in the world of DARK SOULS: REMASTERED are nine online covenants to uncover that will motivate your online interactions. If we hear any further news of the release of this bundle outside of Japan, we'll be sure to let you know.
