Dark Souls: Remastered is coming to Nintendo's popular console, the company announced today via surprise Nintendo Direct Mini. The genre-defining title is coming back in high-definition detail and it also marks the debut of the Dark Souls series on a Nintendo platform for the first time ever. Support for up to six simultaneous players in multiplayer / co-op is additionally being added, we're told. The critically acclaimed, cult-enshrined action-RPG Dark Souls is coming to Nintendo Switch.
This is not the only indication of Dark Souls remastered as recently Twitter user, Sassy, who posted a picture proof on his/her Twitter account suggesting that an online retailer has leaked Dark Souls PS4 Remaster.
After numerous reports and a number of teases, Nintendo has finally premiered its Switch-centric January Direct presentation. Apparently, the remaster will utilise SFX and lighting tech from Dark Souls III, so we would expect the remaster to have similar visuals. Updated versions of Dark Souls, The World Ends with You and Hyrule Warriors - among other games - are headed to the hybrid portable console.
Lastly, what helps tie both of these together is that both indicate that Dark Souls Remastered will be arriving in May. If true, in the West it could also arrive in its version of Xbox One, although there seems to be no mention of Switch, which was also rumored a month ago.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will see the addition of Donkey Kong, and speaking of which, Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze will also make its way from the Wii U to the Switch.
The journalist claimed the information came from a source close to the publisher. Now making TechRaptor my home.
