A few hours later it will be announced that Dark Souls Remastered is also coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC.
In case you haven't heard, Dark Souls is making its way to current-generation platforms in a new version of the game aptly titled Dark Souls: Remastered. The standard PS4 and Xbox One consoles will be 1080p60, with the Switch version locked at 1080p docked and 720p portable, both running at (hopefully a stable) 30FPS. As with so many other remasters, this will enhance the game for modern day consoles, giving it a fresh coat of paint while likely leaving much of the core gameplay unchanged.
Dark Souls: Remastered will feature what publisher Bandai Namco is calling a "Dynamic 4K resolution" and an increase in the number of players able to participate in an online session. Though this an important occasion of Nintendo, it's also an important one for the Dark Souls franchise as well, as it's the first time the franchise will be available on a handheld device. It's a trilogy that is industry defining, and Japan is getting a suitably stunning box set to celebrate just that.
You can expect to die no matter where you are when the game hits the Switch on May 15th this year.
Even with no major changes, I'm still eager to get a definitive version of Dark Souls.
The Dark Souls Remastered release date has been set for 25 May and we urge you to pick this up if you want to see it in its full glory.
