Dark Souls: Remastered brings From Software's accidental masterpiece to the Nintendo Switch

14 January 2018

After the surprise announcement of Dark Souls Remastered from Nintendo's mini-direct yesterday, a lot of speculation started about what this new version of From Software's masterpiece would entail. Similar to the PC's Prepare to Die edition, this reinvention also comes with the base game's Artorias of the Abyss DLC in tow. It's also headed to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Dark Souls is the first of the enormously popular Dark Souls trilogy, which popularized the genre of extremely hard RPG games alongside its sister game Bloodborne.

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

The multiplayer functionality has been bolstered as well, allowing up to six players to join together in a single session for jolly cooperation, up from the maximum of three in the original. The company revealed that not only is a remastered version of Dark Souls in the works, but that it will actually be getting a release on Switch.

Dark Souls originally launched in 2011 to widespread critical acclaim.

Are you excited to play Dark Souls again? Given that the Nintendo Switch has now broken sales records around the globe, FromSoftware must feel convinced enough to sign off on Switch ports of its iconic action series.

The original Dark Souls turns seven this year, and we're just now starting to feel the full weight of its influence.
