'Dark Souls' Runs At 1080P, 30 FPS When Docked On Nintendo Switch

It has been officially confirmed by Bandai Namco that Dark Souls Remastered is going to be released for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Sure, Dark Souls III is the "big closure" to the series, but Miyazaki never ruled out FromSoft revisiting earlier games in the series since remastering games is all the rage these days. Also included is the soundtrack to all three games spread across six discs, ten art prints with a frame, and three item dictionaries which come with descriptions for every item found in the Dark Souls series. The notoriously demanding game that first challenged players to explore and master its unsafe world in 2011 will come to a Nintendo system for the first time on May 25, 2018. The PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, and PC versions specifically will have upscaled 4K resolution with 60 FPS - this will make all your future trips through Blight Town that much more enjoyable. I mean, hopefully, the PC version will be a damn sight better than the original Dark Souls. The Direct event will showcase Nintendo Switch software for 2018, with Dark Souls Remastered being the closing announcement.

This is a handsome collector's item that will delight the biggest fans of the series, although considering the high price announced for the Japanese version, it will not appeal to those who simply want to get started on the series with the most complete edition. Would you like to see Dark Souls 1 on the Nintendo Switch?

DARK SOULS: REMASTERED: The first title in the genre-defining action role-playing franchise is coming to Nintendo Switch.

From the leak, it seems the game is set to launch on May 24th, 2018 for the PS4.

First released in late 2011, it took an influential approach to video game storytelling, letting its community of players piece together its backstory over the course of several years from well-hidden and often ambiguous hints hidden within the game world.

It would kind of explain the Nintendo of America Chibi-Robo tweet, which shares similarities with the famous "Praise the Sun" pose (above) from Dark Souls.
