FromSoftware's original Dark Souls is getting a remaster later this year, letting everyone practice their rolling and get used to the unforgiving combat in high definition.
Dark Souls Remastered will see the graphics improved to modern standards, allowing it to hit the maximum capabilities of the platform its being played on.
With the launch of Dark Souls, From Software has announced that it has no plans for another entry in the Dark Souls franchise.
"DARK SOULS: REMASTERED delivers the same great gameplay, online mechanics, and environmental storytelling that has inspired countless game players and developers", said Kasumi Yogi, Associate Brand Manager for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc.
Dark Souls Remastered will feature 2K unconverted textures on the PC
The remastered version of the game will feature the original game that came out back in 2011 for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Dark Souls rewards and encourages obsession, and it's had plenty of super expensive merchandise before now.
There's now no more info on Dark Souls Remastered, but we'll update this page as Bandai Namco reveals more, including the first gameplay footage of Dark Souls Remastered on Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Rumours also suggest that both Dark Souls 2 and 3 will head to Switch sometime after that, so it's a good time to praise the sun.
There's no Xbox One version because the format is irrelevant in Japan, but there's no reason why the box set couldn't also be released for Microsoft's console, or the PC, if it's brought to the West. Since devs are always working to make Switch games function optimally docked or undocked, 60 fps is near impossible.
Dark Souls Remastered Switch - What do we Know? That could rely on how well the Switch version of Dark Souls: Remastered sells, but that's just speculation on my part. For comparison purposes, the game will run with upscaled 4K on Xbox One and PS4 Pro, and there is no mention at all for the quality of their textures.
