The Remastered version of the game will include the expansion, "Artorias of the Abyss".

Bandai Namco has announced that Dark Souls: Remastered is coming this May to modern consoles and PC. This will be the first time that the franchise sees a release on a Nintendo platform.

Aside from the upgraded visuals arriving with it, the remaster will be playable in 60fps at 4K resolution on PC, Xbox One X, and PlayStation 4 Pro.


The Dark Souls Remastered release date has been set for 25 May and we urge you to pick this up if you want to see it in its full glory.

There's no mention of any crossover Nintendo content for players to find (like how the Switch version of Skyrim includes the Master Sword from Zelda) but that doesn't mean it won't be there.

Re-experience the genre-defining title that kicked off a worldwide gaming phenomena in stunning high-definition detail. Still, most people should know what the Souls series is about by now, either through having played it on their own or watching others subject themselves to Dark Souls' famous brand of brutality. Hidden in the world of DARK SOULS: REMASTERED are nine online covenants to uncover that will motivate your online interactions. From Software also announced a special edition for the Japanese version of the game. Support for up to six simultaneous players in multiplayer / co-op is additionally being added, we're told.


Dark Souls Remastered will launch this May in all regions on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Of course, it also means it's the first time you'll be able to play the game on the go.

Yes, Dark Souls is finally making its way to a Nintendo system.
