Bandai Namco has announced that Dark Souls: Remastered will be inviting fearless adventurers to revisit the unsafe realm of Lordran, when it launches for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC this May. Of course, the game will be playable docked and undocked, meaning that this will be the first time that players will be able to take the game on the road. Players can expect 4K resolution and 60FPS on the PC.

Dark Souls Remastered is set to launch on May 25th for the PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One. It's a cracking game. The Nintendo Switch version will, however, run at 1080p and 30fps.

And you have to ask: why wouldn't they?


Here are 7 things we hope Dark Souls Remastered fixes. Are you excited for the Dark Souls Remaster? The PC version will run at a native 4K resolution, with all textures at 2K unconverted, and will run at 60 fps as well.

Square Enix is bringing a port of this stylish RPG from 2008 to the Switch.

The PlayStation blog published a post from Bandai Namco where Brand Marketing Associate Kasumi Yogi went into greater length about what features are being enhanced for the PS4 Pro version of the game. The first in the series of multi-platform Souls games still stands as a hallmark of From Software's stellar design - something the studio only perfected heading up to Dark Souls 3. And let's not forget the fact that you have to save and quit to the main menu each time you want to reconnect in a Souls game. On the Xbox One X and PS 4 Pro, it will look very well, but we don't know how it will look like on the Nintendo Switch. The engine will also be improved to support six concurrent players, which should make covenants and invasions much more interesting. A similar system would be an easy and non-intrusive way to breathe life into Dark Souls Remastered's multiplayer component.
