After months of leaks and rumors, Bandai Namco finally confirmed Dark Souls Remastered today.
First announced during today’s Nintendo Direct Mini presentation, Dark Souls Remastered is coming out on May 25, 2018. Shortly after the Direct ended, publisher Bandai Namco uploaded the same trailer onto its YouTube channel with confirmation that the game was coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
While some details surrounding the Remaster are still brief, Bandai Namco did confirm that PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of the game will feature 60fps gameplay and improved resolution and visual fidelity. The game will also support PS4 Pro and Xbox One X with upscaled 4K resolution. On Nintendo Switch, the game will run at 720p in handheld mode and 1080p while docked – both modes are capped at 30fps. The publisher also announced that the game has increased multiplayer player count from 4 to 6, and will be supported with dedicated supported.
According to Kotaku, Dark Soul Remastered is being ported by two different companies: One will focus solely on the Switch version of the game, while the other works on PC, Xbox One and PS4. Kotaku went on to say the Remaster would feature lighting and effects improvements that are more in line with 2016’s Dark Souls 3.
