Nintendo Direct Mini: Dark Souls remaster and so much more

Dark Souls Remastered will be announced today

Dark Souls, Luigi, Hyrule Warriors and More Headed to Switch

In case you haven't heard, Dark Souls is making its way to current-generation platforms in a new version of the game aptly titled Dark Souls: Remastered.

Bandai Namco has announced that Dark Souls: Remastered will be released for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch on May 25th.

The massively popular Dark Souls series is returning to alternatively frustrate and excite players with the newly-announced Dark Souls: Remastered edition, coming this May to PC via Steam.

Are you excited to play Dark Souls on the go? The teaser trailer for this new version of the iconic and hard title didn't show us much, but it did give us a date for its release: May 25.

This is considered one of the better Wii U games, so it's good to see a port of it coming to Switch on May 4. It makes sense to release your game on a console that's not only selling well, but also gives owners the ability to play in a way that suits them.

In fact, From Software revealed today that Dark Souls: Remastered will support 4K, 60fps gameplay on the PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One X, and PC.

Sure, 10 million worldwide sales have probably helped out in that regard, but it's clear those outside the Nintendo bubble feel different about the Switch. Similar to the PC's Prepare to Die edition, this reinvention also comes with the base game's Artorias of the Abyss DLC in tow.

FromSoftware's Dark Souls gained fame, or rather infamy, for being a challenging title that was unforgiving to players that made mistakes.

The hybrid handheld/home console is having a stellar first year.

Given the impact that Dark Souls has had on gaming since its 2011 debut, it was just a matter of time before we'd see the title remastered. As of yet, we do not know how that will be split between cooperators and invaders.
