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. Though the video clocks in at just over 14 minutes, this "Nintendo Direct Mini" still features a treasure trove of new announcements for the Switch. Previously, all games of the "Souls" sub-genre of roleplaying games (RPGs) were only released on the PlayStation, Xbox, or PC.
Dark Souls challenges players to explore the twisted ancient land of Lordran. Experience the rich world of DARK SOULS in upscaled 4K resolution with 60FPS when playing on a PlayStation 4 Pro system, Xbox One X, and PC. Up to six players can join together online to help, or hurt, each other throughout their quest.
The upcoming Dark Souls Remastered will not include new assets based on Dark Souls III engine, any combat differences, and HDR lightning on the PS4 Pro version; VaatiVidya, a SoulsBorne content creator has confirmed in a recent Tweet. What's more, it's rumored that the rest of the series is set to follow after the first chapter is released - sources indicate that all three games will be available on the Switch eventually, according to Kotaku.
A few hours later it will be announced that Dark Souls Remastered is also coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC.
