Announced on today's Nintendo Direct Mini, Bandai Namco and FromSoftware are bringing its critically acclaimed title to the Nintendo Switch in the form of Dark Souls: Remastered. There will also be a separate team entirely for Dark Souls, like how the DOOM port was handled, for the Nintendo Platform to make sure that the game is adapted to the unique controls in the most effective way possible.
The World Ends with You was also announced for the Switch. Finally, PC players have a decent version of the game to look forward to, even though it took close to a decade.
Dark Souls was originally released for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2011, and went on to be a critical and commercial success, often lauded for its harsh difficulty and in-depth world design. Gamers everywhere were torn, and it quickly turned into a hit or miss situation for many RPG fans, with a handful adoring the game for its difficulty, and with another handful criticizing it for how tough it was to beat. The set features Dark Souls and its two sequels as well as a collection of soundtrack CDs.
An upcoming remastered version of Dark Souls was recently confirmed during Nintendo's mini-Direct yesterday.
For starters, it's further evidence of Nintendo's dedication to carrying the console's momentum forward by curating a diverse software line-up full of popular third-party prospects with a broad appeal.
