After many rumors, we can finally confirm that Dark Souls is being remastered for the Nintendo Switch. The company says Dark Souls: Remastered will run with improved framerate and resolution compared to the original version, and it will bundle in the Artorias of the Abyss expansion DLC. It's finally happening, and it is certainly glorious. At the end of the direct, Dark Souls Remastered is apparently getting announced for Nintendo Switch.
Dark Souls was first released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2011 to widespread acclaim. Scheduled to release on the same day, May 25, the remaster will be enhanced for PS4 Pro, and Xbox One X. A very short trailer teasing the game's arrival on Switch was shown during the Nintendo Direct but didn't showcase any gameplay - just the iconic bonfire. Since the Nintendo Direct mini is supposed to air today, it won't take long to know if Dark Souls is indeed coming to Nintendo Switch. Players could also appear in each others' games to either help or hinder each others' progress, maintaining a community of dedicated players that is still active seven years later. Bandai Namco would also bring Dark Souls II and Dark Souls III on Switch, but it is not clear whether in a single package or individually.More news: After 'Fire And Fury,' The President Is Talking About Libel Laws Again
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. Another change will be seen in the multiplayer, expanded to six players.
Sure, 10 million worldwide sales have probably helped out in that regard, but it's clear those outside the Nintendo bubble feel different about the Switch.
