Dark Souls Remastered Confirmed For Nintendo Switch

Dark Souls Trilogy Box Set Also Announced for PS4, But It's Crazy Expensive

Bandai Namco has confirmed that a remastered version of Dark Souls will launch on May 25. Playing the game on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X will allow players to enjoy the game at upscaled 4K resolution.

Why all the resolution talk?

And if Switch owners keep buying games at a steady rate, you can expect that Bandai Namco and other companies will return with something new.

Months ago there were rumors that a Dark Souls trilogy would be coming to the Nintendo Switch, but those reports were only half right: instead of all three games the Japanese publisher is launching the first as a remaster on the Switch.

The Old Trafford giants have been linked with Moura but it appears as if they are still some way off any deal being agreed. He has come five years late, but he could make up for lost time by getting up and running right away.

To use Bandai Namco as an example, this makes Dark Souls: Remastered on Switch a no-brainer. These remasters will include not only updated graphics but "rebuilt lighting and SFX similar to Dark Souls 3". This marks the franchise's debut on a Nintendo platform, and now for the first time ever, this revered (and challenging) game can be played on the go. It's considered one of the best games of the previous generation.

The Switch has slowly but surely been adding more mature content to its lineup, with games like Skyrim fleshing out the system's library and beefing up its selection of more hardcore offerings.
