Dark Souls Remastered Confirmed For Nintendo Switch, Also Coming To PS4, PC And Xbox One

Dark Souls Remastered was rumored earlier today for the PS4 and today it was confirmed in a Nintendo Direct Mini. The game is coming to the Nintendo Switch along with the rumored PS4 version, however expect to see it on other platforms including PC and Xbox One.

This remaster is being developed from ground up on the Dark Souls 3 engine according to a report from Kotaku UK. The new addition for the remaster is the ability play 6 player concurrent multiplayer. You can watch its reveal trailer below. The trailer doesn’t show any gameplay and serves more as a teaser than a full reveal.

Dark Souls Remastered is out on May 25th for the PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. The release of the game for the PS4 was leaked earlier this week through a Japanese retailer promotion, however it was confirmed today in the Nintendo Direct Mini.

Dark Souls originally launched for the PS3 and Xbox 360 and was later ported to the PC. The PC port is infamous for its atrocious quality but it was fixed thanks to the work of some PC modders that made it playable and arguably the definitive version of the game. If you don’t utilize the mods though, Dark Souls on PC rendered at 720p and was locked to 30 fps, which hopefully this remaster will fix now.
