'Dark Souls' to receive a remastered edition and Nintendo Switch port

The remaster is a complete rework of the game from the ground up in a new game engine and will be available for PS4, Xbox, PC, and Switch. While the trailer was for the Nintendo Switch, the same release date applies for all other consoles that the remastered edition will be coming to. They also note that it will release in May. The project was first unveiled as part of a last-minute Nintendo Direct, but it has since been announced that the game will hit the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, also.

The game earned a lot of popularity, but aside from positive comments from the gaming community, the RPG also received a fair amount of hate and negative comments due to the game's difficulty.

The world of Lordran is set to be realized in upscaled 4K resolution for players journeying through the game on the PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One X, and PC. In handheld mode, it will be 720p and 30 fps. For the first time, we can play Dark Souls at 4k. Would you like to see the entire Dark Souls series on the Switch?

Gameplay will not change much from the original.

Along with the original game, Dark Souls: Remastered will include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC.

The move to bring Dark Souls to a portable platform is a unsafe one, considering the addiction levels of some fans, and one that raises some interesting questions about the game's online features.

Dark Souls was initially released in 2011 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

One of our sources indicates that Bandai Namco plans to bring all three Dark Souls games to Switch eventually, but the oft-rumoured "trilogy" bundle is not how this will be happening - yet.
