Dark Souls Remastered confirmed for Switch release

Dark Souls Remastered confirmed for Switch release

Now you can finally play Dark Souls on the go with the Nintendo Switch now you can play anywhere you want.

In a Japanese retailer listing, it was first leaked that Dark Souls will get a remaster for the PS4. It is planned to launch alongside the Nintendo Switch release on May 25. Yet Dark Souls Remastered should already look quite good without it. The box features Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, Dark Souls 3: The Fire Fades Edition, soundtracks, knight and bonfire bookends, an encyclopedia, and a special art set. The fact that it doesn't run at true 4k on the Xbox One X did disappoint some gamers especially since the console comes with a $499.99 price tag.

Donald Trump in 'excellent' health: White House doctor says after exam
His mental state notwithstanding, Trump is the most physically out-of-shape president since William Howard Taft a century ago. However, for people concerned about the president's cognitive health, a physical doesn't focus much on neurological status.

According to the publisher, the PC version of Dark Souls Remastered will support native 4K resolutions and all of its textures will be in 2K and unconverted (our guess is that this means that the textures will be uncompressed?). Also, 1080p resolution with 30FPS is available when playing the game on Nintendo Switch with its TV mode. It seems that despite listings saying quite the opposite, Dark Souls Remastered will not feature HDR on PS4 Pro after all. As a single player game, Dark Souls presents a tight and polished experience with the player constantly chasing that new piece of loot, or that next soul level, or the next boss battle.

We understand that this news is a lot to take in because fans of the franchise (like me), have been asking for remaster/remake of the first Dark Souls and Demon Souls for quite some time, even though the PC community has enough graphical mods to make Dark Souls 1 look unbelievable, console gamers want to relive the glorious world of Lordran in update textures and higher resolution/textures.
