Dark Souls Remastered Officially Revealed For Nintendo Switch, Releases May 2018

Dark Souls Remastered is the latest in the trend of critically acclaimed remastered games.

However, the Twitter user notes that even if the game is being remastered for PS4, don't expect details to be revealed soon.

Nintendo Direct confirmed the rumor that the original Dark Souls was being remastered.

The release dates vary, but Nintendo is aiming to ship all of this content to you in the first half of the year. The wait between exclusive game launches has been more consistent in the first year of the Switch .

To be fair, the list of features was the usual bullet points for PS4 Pro/Xbox One X versions of games, so it's entirely possible that it was included without thought.

Of course, there's more, including a nifty set of bookends (which can also be used as a diorama if you don't read books) and a three volume item encyclopaedia. Not familiar with Dark Souls, let me help you. Dark Souls: Remastered for Switch will mark the first time the franchise will appear on a Nintendo console (and the series' first portable entry). The game was later ported to Windows PC in 2012 as Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition. But considering the popularity of the Dark Souls series (and the fact that Dark Souls III is supposedly the last game in the series), it would make sense for Bandai Namco to release the game on this console generation.

Dark Souls Remastered will support native 4K resolutions and 60fps, as well as upscaled textures.

The game will release for Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One on May 25 this year.

Dark Souls Remastered Goes to Switch
The teaser trailer for Dark Souls Remastered was frustratingly brief and didn't offer a good look at the updated gameplay. The PC version is not so well respected, but the community has crafted a number of mods to improve the experience.
