Bandai Namco has confirmed that a remastered version of Dark Souls will launch on May 25.
Hidden in the world of Dark Souls: Remastered are nine online covenants to uncover that will motivate your online interactions. The title runs at 1080p resolution at 30 FPS on the Nintendo Switch when docked to a television.
Dark Souls was originally released for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2011, and went on to be a critical and commercial success, often lauded for its harsh difficulty and in-depth world design.
There's now no more info on Dark Souls Remastered, but we'll update this page as Bandai Namco reveals more, including the first gameplay footage of Dark Souls Remastered on Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. There will also be framerate and resolution improvements for the Switch version. The fact that it doesn't run at true 4k on the Xbox One X did disappoint some gamers especially since the console comes with a $499.99 price tag. It makes sense to release your game on a console that's not only selling well, but also gives owners the ability to play in a way that suits them.
FromSoftware and publisher Bandai Namco has yet to announce anything about a Dark Souls or Dark Souls 2 remaster.
The description on the YouTube video simply states "Here is a tiny glimpse into our new project" indicating that, perhaps this isn't going to be a game we've seen from From Software before. The game is titled Dark Souls: Remastered and will release for all major platforms.
Yes, Dark Souls is finally making its way to a Nintendo system. If we hear any further news of the release of this bundle outside of Japan, we'll be sure to let you know.
As a spiritual sequel to 2009's Demon's Souls, Dark Souls instantly became a fan-favorite with its challenging but rewarding action-RPG gameplay.
