REMASTERED marks the DARK SOULS series debut on a Nintendo platform, and for the first time ever can be played on the go with the unique capabilities of the Nintendo Switch console. Previously, all games of the "Souls" sub-genre of roleplaying games (RPGs) were only released on the PlayStation, Xbox, or PC.
A remaster of hugely influential action RPG Dark Souls is coming to Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 25, Bandai Namco has announced.
Similar to the Scholar of the First Sin edition of Dark Souls 2, the remaster will allow up to six players to join a game session - and increase of two over the original Dark Souls - though there's no confirmation on the mix of white (co-op) and black (pvp) phantoms. But something the always-there portability of a Switch version could easily make up for. VaatiVidya, who is known for creating SoulsBorne lore videos, took it to Twitter and claimed that the remastered version would use Dark Souls III engine assets, HDR lightning, and a few other enhancements for PS4 Pro version. The game's combat can be hard.
Dark Souls was first released in 2011 and went on to become a cult smash that spawned two direct sequels and a host of imitators, ranging from Lords of the Fallen to Nioh.
Apart from the promised graphical and optimization improvements for "Dark Souls Remastered", no other details have been revealed regarding the Switch version.
Dark Souls challenges players to explore the twisted ancient land of Lordran.
