Dark Souls Remastered announced for Xbox One, PS4, PC & Switch

DARK SOULS: REMASTERED will be available on 25 May, 2018 for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 system, Xbox One and PC.

Aside from the upgraded visuals arriving with it, the remaster will be playable in 60fps at 4K resolution on PC, Xbox One X, and PlayStation 4 Pro. It includes the three games and is exclusive to PS4, but ships with a bunch of delectable extras suitable for any hardcore Dark Souls fan.

There are likely still some diehard Dark Souls fanatics that are disappointed that they won't have the opportunity to purchase the Dark Souls trilogy box set.

Dark Souls would go on to influence a slew of titles such as last year's Nioh, Absolver, and Bandai Namco's upcoming action JRPG Code Vein. These people have been calling out for a remaster of the game, especially considering that the original version had a number of glaring technical faults.


For those who haven't seen the whirlwind of fire that has been Nintendo social media the past few days, a variety of leaks suggested a Nintendo Direct was this week, with zero actual evidence it was happening. In case of the Switch, when handheld, the game will run at 720p obviously at 30 FPS and when docked the game will support up to 1080p HD at 30 FPS.

To the excitement of many around the world, Bandai Namco announced yesterday that Dark Souls would be getting remastered for all current-gen platforms. Sure, Dark Souls III is the "big closure" to the series, but Miyazaki never ruled out FromSoft revisiting earlier games in the series since remastering games is all the rage these days.

Speaking of the PC, Bandai Namco has clarified that if you already own the Prepare to Die Edition of the first Dark Souls on Steam then you'll be able to get Dark Souls Remastered for 50% off.
