Dark Souls 2 And Dark Souls 3 Coming To Nintendo Switch

13 January 2018

A description of the title for PC on the Bandai Namco Store said that if the PC version of Dark Souls is already owned, the remastered version would be 50% off.

Why all the resolution talk? Read on for the Dark Souls Remastered release date, info on Dark Souls Remastered gameplay tweaks, frame rate, resolution, and more.

The games that come with the Dark Souls Trilogy Box are Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, and Dark Souls 3: The Fire Fades Edition. This would be the first time a game from the Souls series will be available on the Nintendo console, giving players the opportunity to praise the sun while on the go. The biggest of these is Dark Souls: Remastered, which is due out May 25 for Switch as well as PC and the other consoles.

There's no mention of any crossover Nintendo content for players to find (like how the Switch version of Skyrim includes the Master Sword from Zelda) but that doesn't mean it won't be there. Later Dark Souls games' online modes were greatly improved with the addition of activity signifiers, an easy way to indicate the most active zones for PVP and co-op.

Dark Souls Remastered will also support "up to six players" for online multiplayer. Chances are it's going to be a similar sort of affair to Dark Souls, Demon's Souls and Bloodborne, but who knows. Of course, the game will be playable docked and undocked, meaning that this will be the first time that players will be able to take the game on the road. Dark Souls: Remastered is now pending a final rating with the ESRB and will carry a MSRP of $39.99 on consoles.

I haven't looked at the reactions to the latest Nintendo Direct from fans, but I can imagine that a lot of people are dropping snarky comments about how the system gets so many older games. Kotaku reports that it will launch in May on all platforms, so it's likely coming to Xbox One on the same day.
