Dark Souls: Remastered Is Coming To The Nintendo Switch

Bandai Namco has announced Dark Souls: Remastered, a rereleased of the second game in the Souls series on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The real surprise here is that we get to die over and over again on the go - It's also heading to the Nintendo Switch. 

It was revealed during the latest Nintendo Direct that we get to play what I think is the best game in the series on a Nintendo platform. 

Bandai Namco has mentioned enhanced visuals for those that own a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X. Here's the  breakdown of resolution and FPS Dark Souls: Remastered on each platform:

  • Xbox One (1080p, 60 fps)
  • PlayStation 4 (1080p, 60 fps)
  • Xbox One X (Upscaled 4K, 60 fps)
  • PlayStation 4 Pro (Upscaled 4K, 60 fps)
  • PC (Native 4K, all textures 2K unconverted, 60 fps)
  • Nintendo Switch (TV mode: 1080p, 30 fps; Handheld mode: 720p 30 fps)


Dark Souls: Remastered will be available on all platforms mentioned on May 25, 2018, and it comes with the original game plus the DLC Artorias of the Abyss. It was also mentioned that this version of the game will have a multiplayer count of up to six players. 

Dark Souls first made its debut back in 2011 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It was then released on PC in 2012 as Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition.
