Dark Souls: Remastered is coming to several new platforms

It includes the three games and is exclusive to PS4, but ships with a bunch of delectable extras suitable for any hardcore Dark Souls fan.

In a Japanese retailer listing, it was first leaked that Dark Souls will get a remaster for the PS4. Dark Souls II was already given the remaster treatment for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 back in 2014, under the subtitle Scholar of the First Sin.

Bandai Namco and FromSoftware have revealed some additional details about Dark Souls Remastered. Read on for the Dark Souls Remastered release date, info on Dark Souls Remastered gameplay tweaks, frame rate, resolution, and more. However, the game is yet to be released on current hardware, save for backward compatibility on the Xbox One. The Nintendo Switch version will, however, run at 1080p and 30fps.

According to multiple sources, both in development and retail, in the next few hours Nintendo will announce a Nintendo Direct Mini to air shortly afterwards showing 2018 software for Switch.

And if Switch owners keep buying games at a steady rate, you can expect that Bandai Namco and other companies will return with something new. PS 4 Pro and Xbox One X will play Dark Souls Remastered at upscaled 4k 60 FPS on PC you can choose. On the PC the game will render at native 4K resolution.

If surprise Total War games aren't your thing, how about surprise Dark Souls ones?

Along with graphical changes, the concurrent online player count has been increased to 6 players for all the platforms.

While the Switch version of Dark Souls Remastered is slightly improved graphically over the previous Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, it's not a huge leap.

"Dark Souls requires intense focus", he said.
