"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. It appears that Dark Souls Remastered will port on Nintendo first, and then release for all other platforms.
Fans of From Software's dark fantasy RPG series have been speculating about future releases ever since the release of Dark Souls 3 previous year.
According to the US PS Blog, the PS4 version of the game will let you return to Lordran to re-experience the original Dark Souls in 4K resolution and HDR lighting when playing on PS4 Pro.
The description on the YouTube video simply states "Here is a tiny glimpse into our new project" indicating that, perhaps this isn't going to be a game we've seen from From Software before. So far the box is only available for PS4 with no Xbox One, Windows, or Switch versions announced. It will cost $39.99 on consoles while the price for the PC version is yet to be confirmed. Multiplayer has apparently also been expanded to support six concurrent players. Best news of all is that you don't have to wait long to get your hands on the game as Dark Souls Remastered hits Switch on May 25th. The game will also be the first title in the series to feature a story mode, complete with missions and boss battles, since the Game Boy Advance days.
During today's Nintendo Direct Mini, Nintendo announced via Bandai Namco that Dark Souls: Remastered would be bringing its classic brand of challenging, satisfying darkness to the Switch as well as the Artorias of the Abyss DLC. In terms of resolution, Dark Souls: Remastered will offer native 4K resolution at 60 fps.
