  • 9/21: 5 pm - 9 pm PT

  • 9/23: 5 pm - 9 pm PT

In the limited network test, you can explore the Undead Parish, both online and offline. Dark Souls Remastered for the Nintendo Switch launches on October 19, 2018.

The Nintendo Switch Online service itself launched just yesterday on September 18, arriving with the option to download 20 NES games onto your Switch. For everything else you need to know about the brand new subscription service, head over to our Nintendo Switch Online guide.
