Dark Souls Remastered Officially Revealed For Nintendo Switch, Releases May 2018

Game Dark Souls: Remastered will be available on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch already since may 25, 2018.

The multiplayer functionality has been bolstered as well, allowing up to six players to join together in a single session for jolly cooperation, up from the maximum of three in the original.

A shopper in Japan has posted a photograph that seems to confirm that a remaster of the first Dark Souls game is on the way.


Dark Souls first launched in 2011, and the updated game will run at up to 1080p resolution at 60 fps, add general visual and performance enhancements, and include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC.

Dark Souls would go on to influence a slew of titles such as last year's Nioh, Absolver, and Bandai Namco's upcoming action JRPG Code Vein. Dark Souls theorist VaatiVidya had claimed that this new port would be using engine assets from Dark Souls 3 and would contain HDR lighting and some PS4 Pro enhancements.

Per usual, leaks like this would be taken with a grain of salt. The US version of the Bandai Namco Store initially included information on a "50% loyalty discount reward for PC upgrades on Steam", namely for those that own the Prepare to Die Edition of the original game. The report claims part of the reason why the two will be announced separately (other than timing) is because a different company will be handling the Switch port. Though if the rumored Nintendo Direct is really taking place later today, fans won't have long to find out if the Dark Souls remaster really is releasing soon.
