Bandai Namco announces Dark Souls: Remastered for all major platforms

Though it's unclear just how Dark Souls: Remastered will perform undocked, my bet is that the Switch will run it at a standard 720p 30 fps (which isn't bad).

The Dark Souls Trilogy box set will release in Japan on May 25 for 49,800 yen.

It's also been suggested that From Software will eventually port all three Dark Souls games to Switch, but that rumor is unconfirmed at this time.

On the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro the game will render at 1080P and supports resolution upscaling.


From Software is the name behind the Dark Souls Remastered which means that the game is at good hands since From Software is the studio behind the trilogy.

Prepare to Cry as Dark Souls Remastered lands on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch on May. The publisher has listed this as an art image, meaning that the game may or may not look like this.

When first released on PC, Dark Souls was just a port of the console version due to being rushed upon release. As of yet this has not been announced for other regions.

Darks Souls had a big day yesterday. Dark Souls Remastered is the latest in the trend of critically acclaimed remastered games. Some reports began circulating, misinforming original game owners that they would be entitled to special treatment when purchasing the remaster, but it turns out these reports were wrong. One notable one for myself was BioShock, in which owner of the original BioShock, BioShock 2 or Minerva's Den DLC were entitled to an entirely free upgrade to The Collection remaster versions. "This isn't a lighthearted romp in a bright and colorful fantasy world; it's a methodical journey into the frightening unknown". Some games try to scare you with bump-in-the-night shocks and far-off howls, but Dark Souls doesn't require such predictable methods of terror.
