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. Nintendo has confirmed this to be the case with their Dark Souls: Remastered page. Dark Souls Remastered for Switch was announced during the January 2018 Nintendo Direct. It seems that despite listings saying quite the opposite, Dark Souls Remastered will not feature HDR on PS4 Pro after all.

Are you glad that the rumors were true? It won't have the visual fidelity of the other platforms, but it does offer the option to play Dark Souls on a handheld. Will you get it for the Nintendo Switch or another system?
