Dark Souls Remastered confirmed for Switch release


Kotaku UK is reporting that it has heard from "multiple sources" that Dark Souls 1 is getting a remastered version.

The clarification was reported by Game Informer, who said that Bandai Namco has confirmed there are now no plans to release the Dark Souls trilogy box set "in the Americas". The new version of Dark Souls will also be coming to Xbox One and PS4 and will feature improved framerate and resolution over the original release.

Not only that but the multiplayer will support 6 players at once, making it easier than ever to team up and beat up a boss.

You'll be able to pick up Dark Souls: Remastered on May 25 this year. There have been rumors regarding the games existing pouring out since early this morning before Nintendo dropped their mini-direct. Laura Kate Dale has also claimed that the Nintendo Direct will air in the "next 2-3 hours", so we won't have long to find out. For the Nintendo Switch, the game will run in 1080p at 30fps in TV mode, according to Bandai Namco.

The port is developed by From Software and will be capable of running at upscaled 4K resolutions and at 60fps on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.

This morning it was announced that Dark Souls Remastered is on its way to Nintendo Switch. Nintendo has confirmed this to be the case with their Dark Souls: Remastered page.
