Naturally, and given the terrible initial state of the PC version of the first Dark Souls game, a lot of PC gamers wondered whether this would be a free upgrade for them.

Now that we've had confirmation it'll appear on the Switch, too, we're keen to see what else we can expect from Dark Souls Remastered - we may even get new content.

The game will release for Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One on May 25 this year. However, in a press release following the Direct, Nintendo clarified that Remastered "includes the Artorias of the Abyss DLC, as well as improved framerate and resolution from the original".

Not only are the graphics getting an upgrade, but fans of the multiplayer experience in Dark Souls are also getting a boost.
