Dark Souls Remastered is on its way - PC, PS4, Xbox, Switch

Watch the debut trailer for Dark Souls: Remastered on Switch below. While the Switch version could conceivably address that level of difficulty by toning it down, somehow we suspect that Dark Souls Remastered will be just as hard to master as the original. A press release for the game says that it will be upscaled for 4K resolution with 60 fps for the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. The inclusion of the Dark Souls franchise in the ever-growing catalogue of Switch games goes right along with Nintendo's decision to include more mature titles like Doom and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. So yeah, while this isn't a free upgrade, PC/Steam users will be able to acquire this remastered version of Dark Souls at a normal price.

Since then, Bandai Namco has removed the sentence and assured fans via a spokesperson that the $40 price is across the board for all platforms, suggesting that the original information was made in error.

From the leak, it seems the game is set to launch on May 24th, 2018 for the PS4.

"Dark Souls" 2011 will be receiving the remaster treatment after rumors of its release.


According to the US PS Blog, the PS4 version of the game will let you return to Lordran to re-experience the original Dark Souls in 4K resolution and HDR lighting when playing on PS4 Pro.

Along with graphical changes, the concurrent online player count has been increased to 6 players for all the platforms. The remaster of the Dark Souls will be released for Nintendo's portable console on May 25.

Are you excited to play Dark Souls again?
