Dark Souls Remastered Coming To Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC This May [Update]

From Software's classic is getting the Switch port you wanted.

Today during Nintendo's surprise Nintendo Direct Mini, the platform holder revealed one of the titles that was previously rumored. Dark Souls is heading to Nintendo Switch and it already has a firm release date: May 25, 2018.

Dark Souls: Remastered will include the base game and the downloadable content, Artorias of the Abyss.

Kotaku UK is also reporting that Dark Souls: Remastered will be heading to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC during the same time frame. The outlets says the Switch port will be handled by a seperate company from the other releases, with the overall remaster being based on the Dark Souls 3 engine. Further, Bandai Namco is planning to remaster all three games, but is doing them one at a time.

EDIT: And in short order, Bandai Namco has confirmed Dark Souls: Remastered for all four platforms.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
