Dark Souls: Remastered brings From Software's accidental masterpiece to the Nintendo Switch


Once the camera steadied the pyre was lit aflame while a hero stood over it, which is usually one of the most defining images of Dark Souls given that players save their games at the campfires. This is an exciting development for those who own a Switch and have never played Dark Souls before, but if the announcement got you Dark Souls veterans in the mood to give the game another go, then we've got some good news for you.

Bandai Namco have announced that Dark Souls: Remastered is on its way to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.

Here's the full Nintendo Direct Mini presentation, which also includes a look at Mario Tennis Aces, a Switch version of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Kirby Star Allies, The World Ends With You: Final Remix, Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, SNK Heroines ~Tag Team Frenzy~, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, PAYDAY 2, Fe, and Celeste. Players can expect 4K resolution and 60FPS on the PC. Also included is the soundtrack to all three games spread across six discs, ten art prints with a frame, and three item dictionaries which come with descriptions for every item found in the Dark Souls series. The Dark Souls box set is retailing 49,800 yen, which equates to around $440. It's also coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One. That could rely on how well the Switch version of Dark Souls: Remastered sells, but that's just speculation on my part.

Dark Souls Remastered is due out for the Nintendo Switch on May 25.
