Dark Souls Trilogy Not Planned for Release in the West

Following some quite frankly overwhelming and confusing reactions on the internet, we've finally received confirmation through Nintendo's Mini Direct that Dark Souls would be coming to the Nintendo Switch in the form of Dark Souls Remastered. This studio will reportedly utilize Dark Souls 3 technology when upgrading the original game's lighting and effects. Along with the visual enhancements, the game will include the DLC from the first game, 'Artorias of the Abyss'. The inclusion of the Dark Souls franchise in the ever-growing catalogue of Switch games goes right along with Nintendo's decision to include more mature titles like Doom and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It's not clear what perks, if any, Remastered will see on Nintendo's portable console.

It's also been suggested that From Software will eventually port all three Dark Souls games to Switch, but that rumor is unconfirmed at this time.

For more updates on Nintendo, Dark Souls Remastered, Bandai Namco, or the Dark Souls box set, keep checking in with OnlySP's Twitter and Facebook.

In a Japanese retailer listing, it was first leaked that Dark Souls will get a remaster for the PS4. There's a set of bookends, featuring one of the series' iconic bonfires, concept art prints and sizeable printed work that appears to be a fancy artbook.

For an early look at Dark Souls: Remastered, check out the new trailer from Bandai Namco and From Software. The game makes its current-gen debut May 25.
