Dark Souls Remastered Announced for the Switch, PS4, And Xbox One

Dark Souls fans will be more than happy with the recent news of Dark Souls not only being brought to the Nintendo Switch, but also being remastered on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.


Kotaku alleges that Bandai Namco is aiming to have all three games in the Dark Souls franchise make it over to the Nintendo Switch, though today's Nintendo Direct will be focused on beginning with that first title. Apromexitly in 4 months, we can play the original Dark Souls at 4k with a PC or we can play it on a plane with the Nintendo Switch. 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. The player will have a hard time matching up keys to their corresponding door, and the maze-like layout of levels will cause the player to get lost many times. Dark Souls Remastered will be out for the platform on 25th May, according to the very brief announcement teaser (see below). Are you excited for the Dark Souls Remaster? So, if you don't own one, then you might have to give this purchase a pass. Dark Souls isn't a ridiculously hard game, but it's challenging enough with a steep learning curve that you'll need time to get used to. The last Dark Souls was Dark Souls 3, which was released in 2016.


Because Dark Souls is generally meant to be enjoyed as a home console experience, all of these factors contribute to painting a less than ideal picture of the Switch port. In handheld mode, it will be 720p and 30 fps. Remaster does not just end up with graphics enhancements, but the game delivers online support for up to 6 players (initially up to 4) and officially dedicated servers, making Bandai Namco opening the door to bigger online support.
