Dark Souls Coming to Nintendo Switch This May

The remaster is a complete rework of the game from the ground up in a new game engine and will be available for PS4, Xbox, PC, and Switch.

This came as a surprise both for fans of the Bandai Namco and From Software game, as well as owners of the Switch since this marks the first time that a "Souls" game is getting ported for a handheld console.

Dark Souls was first released in 2011 and went on to become a cult smash that spawned two direct sequels and a host of imitators, ranging from Lords of the Fallen to Nioh. VaatiVidya, who is known for creating SoulsBorne lore videos, took it to Twitter and claimed that the remastered version would use Dark Souls III engine assets, HDR lightning, and a few other enhancements for PS4 Pro version.

The world of Lordran is set to be realized in upscaled 4K resolution for players journeying through the game on the PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One X, and PC. Despite not having all the visual bells and whistles as originally claimed, the action-RPG will still be playable in 4K resolution and boast an improved frame rate among other extras.

Would you buy Dark Souls 2 and 3 on Switch?

Following some quite frankly overwhelming and confusing reactions on the internet, we've finally received confirmation through Nintendo's Mini Direct that Dark Souls would be coming to the Nintendo Switch in the form of Dark Souls Remastered.
