Dark Souls Remastered

According to a report by Kotaku UK, Dark Souls Remastered will be announced today for PC, PS4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X and Nintendo Switch.

Kotaku reveals that the announcement of the Switch version will come during the much rumored “Nintendo Direct Mini” scheduled for today but not yet confirmed by the house of Kyoto. Bandai Namco would also bring Dark Souls II and Dark Souls III on Switch, but it is not clear whether in a single package or individually.

Dark Souls Remastered should enjoy an updated technical division, based on the Dark Souls 3 engine and will support multiplayer up to a maximum of six players. These versions, in charge of a team different from that of Switch, will incorporate the lighting and effects of Dark Souls III, as well as revised textures. Another change will be seen in the multiplayer, expanded to six players.

Kotaku UK reports that the release would be expected on all the platforms mentioned on May 24, 2018, at least in Japan. We look forward to any confirmations or denials by Bandai Namco.

Also, according to a Twitter image (shown below), a Japanese store would have listed the pre-order of Dark Souls Remastered on PlayStation 4 for May 24. If true, in the West it could also arrive in its version of Xbox One, although there seems to be no mention of Switch, which was also rumored a month ago.
