Dark Souls coming to Nintendo Switch

Dark Souls coming to Nintendo Switch

According to reports, Dark Souls Remastered for PC will be available with 50% discount for those who own Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition.

Dark Souls Remastered will retail for $39.99. Actually, we do know why: Bandai Namco are also releasing it for the Nintendo Switch.

This means that we'll soon be able to play through the entire Dark Souls trilogy on modern consoles. There is no information as to whether there will be any content updates as there was with the Scholar of the First Sin remaster of Dark Souls 2. And in case of PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, the game will be upscaled to 4K resolution and 60 FPS. Bandai Namco did not say what the regular Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions' performance would be like, but did reveal that the Nintendo Switch version will be running on 1080p resolution at 30fps while docked.

REMASTERED allows players to explore the twisted ancient land of Lordran in the first title of the critically acclaimed action role-playing series like never before.

Though it's unclear just how Dark Souls: Remastered will perform undocked, my bet is that the Switch will run it at a standard 720p 30 fps (which isn't bad).

Namco Bandai's announcement makes no mention of whether or not we can expect the other games in the Dark Souls series to launch on the Switch.

The reports arose when listings began popping up, confirming the $40 price tag of the console versions of the game, but something odd was going on with the PC version.

The original Dark Souls is making a return to all major gaming platforms.
