While Dark Souls Remastered made waves because it was revealed for Nintendo Switch first, it looks like the platform will be the last one to get the game. Bandai Namco Entertainment announced today that the Switch version of the game is delayed until this Summer.
There is no concrete release date this time around, just the Summer release window. If Bandai Namco Entertainment sticks to the hard dates of the season, that could be anywhere from June 21 to September 21, 2018.
The publisher also stated that the companion Solaire of Astora Amiibo would be delayed as well. That's probably a good idea, as otherwise Switch owners would just have to longingly look at the GameStop exclusive figure in lieu of playing the game.
The PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 versions of Dark Souls Remastered are holding onto the previously-announced May 25, 2018 release date.
USgamer was able to play Dark Souls Remastered on Nintendo Switch in handheld mode and we found a game that holds up pretty well on the platform. The frame rate maintained a semi-solid 30 fps on the Switch. The folks over at DigitalFoundry also took a look at the trailer for the Switch release to see how it compared to the Xbox 360 version.
Presumably, it's going to be every bit as brutal as the original version of the game. We'll have all the hints, tips, and guides you'll need for Dark Souls when the day arrives, rest assured.
