Dark Souls: Remastered Revealed on Nintendo Direct Mini; Coming in May

Dark Souls: Remastered Revealed on Nintendo Direct Mini; Coming in May

It was listed for PS4 shortly after the remastered version of Dark Souls was announced for PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One earlier today. However, in a press release following the Direct, Nintendo clarified that Remastered "includes the Artorias of the Abyss DLC, as well as improved framerate and resolution from the original".

Dark Souls first made its debut in 2011, and has gone on to see the release on Dark Souls 2, Dark Souls 3, and Bloodborne. Lordran and its cadre of nightmarish monsters will no doubt look even more haunting and treacherous with all of that lovely extra detail. The image is of a pre-order notice for the game and says that Dark Souls remastered will be released on PS4 on May 24, 2018 in Japan. In a surprise Nintendo Direct Mini broadcast overnight, the House of N also confirmed the game would be coming to the Nintendo Switch.

Aside from the upgraded visuals arriving with it, the remaster will be playable in 60fps at 4K resolution on PC, Xbox One X, and PlayStation 4 Pro.

The first trailer for Dark Souls Remastered has been embedded above.

Lastly, what helps tie both of these together is that both indicate that Dark Souls Remastered will be arriving in May. Dark Souls joins Skyrim and Doom as more hardcore offerings on Nintendo's new system.

It's also been suggested that From Software will eventually port all three Dark Souls games to Switch, but that rumor is unconfirmed at this time.
