The project was first unveiled as part of a last-minute Nintendo Direct, but it has since been announced that the game will hit the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, also.

Dark Souls quickly became one of the most beloved franchises of the past decade and this remaster should allow a whole new wave of players to enjoy its satisfying gameplay loop of dying over and over again. Previously, all games of the "Souls" sub-genre of roleplaying games (RPGs) were only released on the PlayStation, Xbox, or PC.


Those of you looking forward to playing the upcoming Dark Souls Remastered in sumptuous 4K resolution may want to dial back expectations somewhat: Bandai Namco Games has confirmed today that the PS4 Pro version of the dungeon crawler won't include HDR Lighting. There is no HDR lighting for the PS4 Pro version, ' wrote Dark Souls community head honcho, Vaati (via GearNuke). From what I gather, fans should expect Dark Souls Remastered to be more similar to original Dark Souls instead of Dark Souls III.

Following the announcement of Dark Souls Remastered on Nintendo Switch, Kotaku has revealed, according to their sources, that Dark Souls 2 and 3 could also see a release on the hybrid system.


While we'll take any excuse to replay Dark Souls for the umpteenth time, we're not entirely sure why this remaster exists.
