Dark Souls: Remastered Brings Lordran To Current Hardware In May

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. Most people including myself were anxious about the software lineup for the Nintendo Switch come 2018, but it seems that Nintendo knows what it's doing and will do its level best to ensure that the Switch is stacked with a number of exclusives and 3rd party titles to keep Switch owners entertained for the entire year.

Bandai Namco has also confirmed that it will soon be releasing a Dark Souls trilogy box set. The remastered version will be released on 25 May 2o18 with "improved framerate and resolution", according to Nintendo. The box set is listed as a PS4 exclusive and it's also unclear whether this content might be released for PC and Xbox One.

Nintendo made a number of announcements in a Nintendo Direct Mini video this morning. As it turns out, Dark Souls: Remastered isn't going to be a Switch-only affair. This will give fans a chance to play one of their old favorites, but it's the people who never played a Dark Souls before that likely attracted Bandai Namco and other companies to the Switch. The Dark Souls box set is retailing 49,800 yen, which equates to around $440.

Nintendo recently claimed that the Switch is the fastest-selling games console in USA history, having sold 4.8 million units in the 10 months since its launch last March. The Dark Souls Item Encyclopedia comes at a B6 size and includes more than 1000 pages of information on items, gear, spells and other details from the three games.

It's a big day for fans of the Dark Souls franchise. We know that. But ads help us pay the bills.
