Dark Souls Remastered Confirmed For Nintendo Switch

Share

A Dark Souls: Remaster has always been something that the community has clamored for, and initial reaction on the internet is incredibly positive. "We are excited to watch the thriving Dark Souls community grow and support new players experiencing the title for the first time".

Bandai Namco has announced that Dark Souls: Remastered will be inviting fearless adventurers to revisit the risky realm of Lordran, when it launches for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC this May. It's also coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with the bonus of 4K support for those who play on PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, and (of course) PC. 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.

Hopefully, the PC version won't be so rough around the edges as the original release was, which had to be fixed up for the most part by modders. The original Dark Souls only allowed 1-4 players per realm, but the enhanced edition bumps the number up to 6 players, allowing more chances of teamwork or betrayal.

It would kind of explain the Nintendo of America Chibi-Robo tweet, which shares similarities with the famous "Praise the Sun" pose (above) from Dark Souls. It's also headed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. 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.

Intel Spectre and Meltdown update will make computers 'immune' to bug
The latest cumulative update for Windows 10 , Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 includes a fix for the vulnerability in some chipsets. The relatively easy-to-implement exploit could give malicious apps a pathway to a device's kernel memory data.

True or not - and we're leaning, heavily, true - we should know in the next few hours. The original Dark Souls was first released in 2011 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, so this version is touting "stunning high-definition detail".

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.

The game is going to run at 1080p and 30fps on the Nintendo Switch when docked.
