Dark Souls: Remastered Announced, Watch the Debut Trailer

Dark Souls: Remastered Announced, Watch the Debut Trailer

Now it is finally a certainty as it was confirmed in Nintendo Direct 2018 that Dark Souls Remastered will indeed be heading to the Nintendo Switch in the near future. The company revealed that not only is a remastered version of Dark Souls in the works, but that it will actually be getting a release on Switch. Lordran and its cadre of nightmarish monsters will no doubt look even more haunting and treacherous with all of that lovely extra detail.

Bandai Namco has announced that Dark Souls: Remastered is coming this May to modern consoles and PC. The game will also support 4K resolution and HDR lighting when playing on PS4 Pro, and likely Xbox One X.

While nothing was detailed about the upcoming remaster, the trailer does show some updated graphics as an armored figure -presumably, the player's character - ignites one of the game's many bonfires in the game's hub location, the Firelink Shrine. Are you new the Dark Souls series? Dark Souls Remastered is set to be released on Switch on May 25th. Demon's Souls' servers may still be going strong two years after release, but however long they do last, I'd bet Dark Souls' servers will certainly last much longer.

The multiplayer functionality has been bolstered as well, allowing up to six players to join together in a single session for jolly cooperation, up from the maximum of three in the original. The report also claims that (Dark Souls publisher) Bandai Namco plans to remaster the entire trilogy eventually, but that is not happening just yet.
