Dark Souls coming to Nintendo Switch

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. But before you go, let us know your thoughts and speculation on Dark Souls: Remastered's performance. Dark Souls: Remastered will launch on May 25, 2018 for Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 (PS4). 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. One notable one for myself was BioShock, in which owner of the original BioShock, BioShock 2 or Minerva's Den DLC were entitled to an entirely free upgrade to The Collection remaster versions.

Hopefully, the PC version won't be so rough around the edges as the original release was, which had to be fixed up for the most part by modders.

It's time to move away from the Dark Souls franchise.

Nintendo posted a Direct presentation today, in which it teases the remake of Dark Souls Remastered in the final segment with a short, but dramatic trailer.

While it hasn't been confirmed that other premium consoles will be getting all of these enhancements, Bandai Namco has detailed in a press release that both PC and Xbox One X would similarly support 4K resolution. This is definitely a unique way to experience the game as it will probably introduce more chaos to the mix. The Switch version will run at a 1080p/30fps in docked mode and 720p/30fps in handheld mode.

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.

I'm excited, and I won't even pretend otherwise.
