Dark Souls To Be Remastered For Switch May 25

Why all the resolution talk?

Bandai Namco invites players back to the treacherous land of Lordran with Dark Souls: Remastered, and re-experience the genre-defining title that kicked off a worldwide gaming phenomena in stunning high-definition detail.

Dark Souls: Remastered is coming to PS4 Pro, as well as Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch on May 25, 2018.

The games included are the recently announced Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls II: Scholar Of The First Sin, and Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades Edition.

Bandai Namco promises that Dark Souls Remastered is going to provide players with the same great gameplay, online mechanics, and environmental storytelling that they're fans of. That could rely on how well the Switch version of Dark Souls: Remastered sells, but that's just speculation on my part. It makes sense to release your game on a console that's not only selling well, but also gives owners the ability to play in a way that suits them. The Dark Souls Trilogy box set is set to release on May 24, and those who want to buy it are going to have to fork over a lot, as it's now priced at 49,800 yen, or $450.


It's a small one, but being able to roll into and stagger certain enemy types in later Dark Souls games made escaping from tight and potentially deadly situations so much more balanced.

As it stands, the Dark Souls trilogy box set is rather expensive, costing 49,800 Yen or roughly $450.

Interestingly enough, the ports for the Xbox One, PC and PS4 versions of the game will be handled by a separate company over the Switch version according to some of the rumors.

Dark Souls Remastered Switch - What do we Know? Among the long list of announcements, the Dark Souls one was ever so stealthily slid in there.

There's no mention of any crossover Nintendo content for players to find (like how the Switch version of Skyrim includes the Master Sword from Zelda) but that doesn't mean it won't be there.
