Dark Souls Remastered for Nintendo Switch Release Date Set for October

Dark Souls Remastered for Nintendo Switch Release Date Set for October

And there's an online network test before release.

Dark Souls Remastered released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC earlier this year, but the Nintendo Switch version was delayed at the last minute. Today, Bandai Namco has announced that Dark Souls Remastered will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch on October 19.

The announcement was made in the tweet just below from the Bandai Namco US Twitter account. The tweet also revealed that the Solaire amiibo will release on the same day.

Also announced in the tweet from Bandai Namco was the reveal of a network test for Dark Souls Remastered on the Nintendo Switch, prior to the launch in October. We don't yet know when the network test will actually be taking place, but one already took place for the game on PC, PS4, and Xbox One earlier this year, before those aforementioned versions launched.

Want to know what we made of the return to Lordran in glorious HD earlier this year? Head over to our Dark Souls Remastered review.

He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
