Dark Souls Remastered Switch to Be Announced During Today's Nintendo Direct


Sounds great, right? Well, it is, but it'll cost you an exorbitant sum of cash, with the Dark Souls Trilogy box selling for a whopping 49,800 yen, which equates to roughly $450. In a surprise announcement during an impromptu installment of Nintendo Direct, Nintendo and Bandai Namco jointly revealed that a remastered edition of Dark Souls is coming later this year.

Dark Souls Remastered will retail for $39.99. Dark Souls: Remastered includes the Artorias of the Abyss DLC, as well as improved framerate and resolution from the original Dark Souls game for an exhilarating return to Lordran. Dark Souls theorist VaatiVidya had claimed that this new port would be using engine assets from Dark Souls 3 and would contain HDR lighting and some PS4 Pro enhancements. 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. Furthermore, the game will support up to six concurrent players in multiplayer.

Some people may balk at a game like Dark Souls being put on the otherwise family-friendly Nintendo Switch, but considering the console already has games like Doom on it, that's not so far-fetched anymore.

Get ready to see YOU DIED often, Nintendo fans.

As is the case with all reports that come from anonymous sources, this information should be taken with a grain of salt. Bandai Namco has confirmed the same by publishing a trailer.
