The upcoming Dark Souls Remastered will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch in late May of this year. The famous RPG will be bringing its melancholic, dark world and brutal difficulty, with an improved framerate and resolution, as well as the Artorias of the Abyss DLC.
Have you ever thought to yourself: “By golly, I wish I could play an incredibly challenging game on my Nintendo Switch on the go?” Well, hypothetical reader, you are very much in luck! After many rumors circling around, Nintendo has announced that Dark Souls Remastered will be coming to the Switch on May 25th, 2018. According to Kotaku, the upcoming remastered version will include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC, as well as improved framerate and resolution.
This is one in a series of moves from Nintendo to really give the Switch some pretty impressive third-party support. For a long time now, Nintendo has been under fire periodically for their lacking third-party support, and it’s pretty cool to see them going in a different direction with their new baby. That being said, playing Dark Souls on the Joy-Con doesn’t sound very enjoyable, but hey, that’s just me. I could be wrong. At the very least, there’s always the Pro controller.
For now, the remaster of Dark Souls has only been announced for the Nintendo Switch. However, according to a report from Kotaku UK, there’s a pretty strong chance that it will also come out on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The report mentions that the announcement for the other platforms will come a few hours after the Nintendo Switch one. Well, they were right on the money so far, so you can probably start preparing to die already, even if you don’t own the Switch. As for the Switch announcement trailer, you can check it out below.
