This upgraded version of the game is set to release May 25, 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
While nothing was detailed about the upcoming remaster, the trailer does show some updated graphics as an armored figure -presumably, the player's character - ignites one of the game's many bonfires in the game's hub location, the Firelink Shrine.
"Dark Souls Remastered delivers the same great gameplay, online mechanics, and environmental storytelling that has inspired countless game players and developers", said Kasumi Yogi, the Associate Brand Manager for Bandai Namco Entertainment America. The title is also headed for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC as well.
In addition to Artorias of the Abyss, the game will also include 4K resolution, high dynamic ranging, and sixty frames per second, bringing it up to modern standards in a big way.
Sounds great, right? Well, it is, but it'll cost you an exorbitant sum of cash, with the Dark Souls Trilogy box selling for a whopping 49,800 yen, which equates to roughly $450. It appears that Nintendo Switch fans are already excited by the announcement, as they're eager to find out what Dark Souls Remastered will look like on the Switch.
Lastly, what helps tie both of these together is that both indicate that Dark Souls Remastered will be arriving in May. Furthermore, there are rumors that suggest the game's multiplayer modes will be expanded to incorporate six concurrent players. Would you like to see the entire Dark Souls series on the Switch?
