Since it bears repeating, everyone’s doing it, so why not Bandai Namco?
With companies like Capcom, Rockstar and Bethesda taking advantage of the Nintendo Switch, it was only a matter of time before other companies started porting their games. And today, Bandai Namco announced via Nintendo Direct that their hit game Dark Souls will be making its way to the system in a remastered form (along with the PlayStation 4, XBox One and PC) on May 25th!
For the remaster treatment, From Software will be handling it themselves in lieu of a third party. And for those who sprung for a PS4 Pro or XBox One X, the game will take advantage and play with an upscaled 4K resolution and at 60FPS. This will also be possible on PC. For Switch users, the game will sport 1080p resolution with 30FPS when playing the game in TV mode. Dark Souls Remastered will also support “up to six players” for online multiplayer. In addition, the game will also include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC.
And for the hardcore fans, Japan will be getting (or you, depending on how hardcore you are) a Dark Souls Trilogy boxset for PlayStation 4. The set includes Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, and Dark Souls 3: The Fire Fades Edition. Additionally, it will include soundtracks for each of the games, knight and bonfire bookends, an encyclopedia, and a special art set. No word yet on if this set will be making it to other regions (here’s hoping).
Now where’s the love for Demon’s Souls?
