Dark Souls Remastered will see the graphics improved to modern standards, allowing it to hit the maximum capabilities of the platform its being played on.

Sounds great, right? Well, it is, but it'll cost you an exorbitant sum of cash, with the Dark Souls Trilogy box selling for a whopping 49,800 yen, which equates to roughly $450.

The original Dark Souls is coming to Nintendo Switch, Nintendo and publisher Bandai Namco announced today. It's rather expensive, though. Moreover, the Artorias of the Abyss DLC will be included in the remaster for free.


Along with the discs, it contains a bookcase which when put together looks like a statue of sorts.

According to the report, the Switch port will be developed by a different team than the PS4, Xbox One and PC ports, with the latter versions of the game featuring "rebuilt lighting and SFX based on Dark Souls 3".

There are likely still some diehard Dark Souls fanatics that are disappointed that they won't have the opportunity to purchase the Dark Souls trilogy box set.


The reports arose when listings began popping up, confirming the $40 price tag of the console versions of the game, but something unusual was going on with the PC version.

Yes, Dark Souls is finally making its way to a Nintendo system. Its terrors emanate from its very core, each step bringing you closer to another inevitable death. Nevertheless, we're still getting a better-looking game than the original, with more content, and that's something to write home about. "Dark Souls doesn't just surpass other dungeon crawlers; it skewers them with a razor-sharp halberd and leaves behind their soulless corpses".
