Bandai Namco announces Dark Souls: Remastered for all major platforms

Dark Souls Remastered was also rumored to contain changes to the covenant system, leading to support for six people online to make the system "run more smoothly".

Dark Souls: Remastered will feature improved 60 FPS framerate and 4K resolution support when paired with the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, as well as on PC. On the Nintendo Switch Dark Souls Remastered runs at 1080p 30 FPS on docked mode and 720p 30 FPS on portable mode.

Dark Souls was first released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2011 to widespread acclaim.

Nintendo posted a Direct presentation today, in which it teases the remake of Dark Souls Remastered in the final segment with a short, but dramatic trailer. Now it is finally a certainty as it was confirmed in Nintendo Direct 2018 that Dark Souls Remastered will indeed be heading to the Nintendo Switch in the near future. Dark Souls: Remastered is now pending a final rating with the ESRB and will carry a MSRP of $39.99 on consoles.

It has been confirmed, the release date will be on May 25.

The original Dark Souls, for some fans, remains arguably the best entry in SoulsBorne series. I always wonder why collector's editions that have art cards don't ever include a frame or method of display, and it's good to see that Bandai Namco provides a way to show them off. Of course, it also means it's the first time you'll be able to play the game on the go. The company revealed that not only is a remastered version of Dark Souls in the works, but that it will actually be getting a release on Switch.

Video game stories from other sites on the web. Details are slim at this point, but we do know the game will launch on May 25, 2018 for $39.99 on the platform. The Dark Souls series has always been a favorite of mine, and at this point its cultural and design impact on the industry are well known.
