That doesn't mean a change in game engine is out of the question, but this will look pretty similar to the version of Dark Souls we already know. This would be the first time a game from the Souls series will be available on the Nintendo console, giving players the opportunity to praise the sun while on the go.
Past year a journalist said on Twitter that a remaster of the original hard-as-nails RPG would be announced at a Bandai Namco on 15 December, alongside four other new titles. The original Dark Souls game was released on the PS 3, Xbox 360, and PC. In fact, FromSoft has done just that, and you'll be able to die again and again on your current generation platform of choice, including Nintendo Switch, starting May 25.
Nintendo wasn't left out either, with the Switch version of Dark Souls Remastered also being announced through a Nintendo Direct Mini stream. 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. A Dark Souls Trilogy box has been announced for PlayStation 4 in Japan.
While it's unfortunate that Dark Souls fans outside of Japan won't have a chance to purchase the collection in their native language, at least they can purchase all three games separately. The Switch's GPU is created to give games a much brighter and more vibrant look compared to the PS4 and Xbox One counterparts, so it will be interesting to see how a game as dark as Dark Souls looks on the Switch when it arrives on May 25th.
