Update: Sadly, we don't know anything else about From Software's "New Project" just yet, but in other exciting news, it's been announced that its classic 2011 RPG Dark Souls is being remastered for Nintendo Switch. Dark Souls II was already given the remaster treatment for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 back in 2014, under the subtitle Scholar of the First Sin. The game will run at an upscaled 4K and 60fpss on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. Pc players will have the option to run at a native 4K resolution. Read on for the Dark Souls Remastered release date, info on Dark Souls Remastered gameplay tweaks, frame rate, resolution, and more.
Dark Souls Remastered is due out May 25 on PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One.
Despite its age, the original Dark Souls is still an incredibly popular game and players have been asking for a remastered version for a while now.
Following up on some earlier rumors, Nintendo was the first to reveal Dark Souls: Remastered this morning. But there are a few ways we're excited to see the beloved adventure improved for current gen platforms, and for the incoming wave of new Dark Souls fans. The Nintendo Switch version will run at 1080p/30fps while docked, Bandai Namco confirmed in a press release. This edition offered all of the DLC for Dark Souls II, along with enhanced visuals for modern consoles. Then again, the fact that the Remaster is coming out on all consoles simultaneously probably means there won't be too much special Nintendo consideration for it.
It is important to note that this is not an official confirmation so take it as a grain of salt until Nintendo officially announces the games for 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. Expect the PC, PS4 and Xbox One announcement to follow shortly.
