Prepare To Die On The Go, Dark Souls: Remastered Heads To Switch

A Dark Souls Trilogy Box Set has been announced for PS4 in Japan, with a host of additional content. DARK SOULS: REMASTERED includes the Artorias of the Abyss DLC, as well as improved framerate and resolution from the original DARK SOULS game for an exhilarating return to Lordran.

The Dark Souls trilogy boxset is now set to release in Japan on May 25, 2018 (which is the Dark Souls Remastered release date) and will cost 49,800 Yen (equivalent to $450). Namco Bandai doesn't discuss what kind of frame rate we can expect on the standard PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but the hope is that we'll get 60fps there as well.

Dark Souls: Remastered is also coming to Nintendo Switch, Bandai Namco announced earlier today as part of a Nintendo Direct presentation. Support for up to six simultaneous players in multiplayer / co-op is additionally being added, we're told. At the time of its release, the game was hailed by Demon's Souls fans and those new to the series as one of the greatest Action-RPG titles ever made. As it turns out, Dark Souls: Remastered isn't going to be a Switch-only affair. With Dark Souls 3 arriving in 2016, it's feasible that From Software have been hard at work on this Soldiers' Soul IP since before Dark Souls 3 had wrapped, but who knows. Keep an eye out for more news soon.
