A remaster of hugely influential action RPG Dark Souls is coming to Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 25, Bandai Namco has announced.
During today's long-rumored, yet brief, Nintendo Direct-called a Nintendo Direct Mini-Bandai Namco revealed developer From Software's first Switch title.
Hidden in the world of DARK SOULS: REMASTERED are nine online covenants to uncover that will motivate your online interactions. No price tag has been attached to the title, but Dark Souls: Remastered should be available digitally and physically for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X, and PC on May 24. More than anything else, though, it's great that Bandai Namco finally listened to what fans have asking about for years and chose to remaster Dark Souls 1 at all.
Dark Souls Remastered will receive graphical enhancements across the board as well as the aim to hit 60 frames per second. Besides the games, the box set includes impressive bookends that look like a knight and a bonfire, art prints, dictionaries with descriptions for every item in the series, and six discs worth of Dark Souls music.
From Software's involvement in the Switch's library has been hinted at since the early days of the Switch's announcement. While not explicitly stated by Bandai Namco, this likely means that the box set is not planned for release in any western territories.
Dark Souls was originally released with an atrocious state on PC however thanks to mods, the game ended up being a huge success with more than 2 million copies sold so far.
