This is in addition to the Nintendo Switch version of Dark Souls Remastered revealed during the surprise Direct event. The original Dark Souls was first released in 2011 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, so this version is touting "stunning high-definition detail".

The port is developed by From Software and will be capable of running at upscaled 4K resolutions and at 60fps on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.

Why all the resolution talk?

The leak comes from a Twitter user in Japan who claims to have spotted a listing in a local game store for Dark Souls Remastered with a release date of 24 May, 2018.

Improvements for the remastered version include rebuilt lighting and similar SFX to DS3 as well as newly updated textures and graphics. But before you go, let us know your thoughts and speculation on Dark Souls: Remastered's performance.

There's now no more info on Dark Souls Remastered, but we'll update this page as Bandai Namco reveals more, including the first gameplay footage of Dark Souls Remastered on Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

There were a number of rumors going around that Dark Souls Remastered would be headed our way in the near future. Kotaku reports that it will launch in May on all platforms, so it's likely coming to Xbox One on the same day.

However if you don't yet have a Nintendo Switch or have yet to play Dark Souls, don't worry. From their first timid steps to absolute mastery, players will build their characters by strategically adapting to daunting foes, exploring haunting locations, and amassing a large collection of weapons, armor, and magic spells to wield for a truly unique playstyle. The game also supports better visuals and a faster frame rate on Microsoft and Sony's new consoles. Among the long list of announcements, the Dark Souls one was ever so stealthily slid in there.

Something to keep in mind is that FROMSOFT also joined in with Nintendo to develop games for the Switch, it's possible that the remaster may be making its way to Switch, which has been rumored quite the many times.

The Switch has slowly but surely been adding more mature content to its lineup, with games like Skyrim fleshing out the system's library and beefing up its selection of more hardcore offerings.
