When Bandai Namco announced Dark Souls Remastered, several doubts arose about its version for Switch and one of them was which is the studio that is developing it. Interestingly, the answer to this question did not come from the distributor, but from the video game classification board in Australia.
This morning, the classification board updated its website with the tab of Dark Souls: Remastered for Nintendo Switch. There it is indicated that it is a game developed by Virtuos and that it will be distributed by Nintendo in the same region.
In case you do not know, Virtuos is a studio based in China that is mainly dedicated to developing ports. It is the company responsible for bringing L.A. Noire to Switch and developing the remastered collection of Batman: Return to Arkham version.
So far, Bandai Namco Entertainment has not confirmed which studio is responsible for bringing Dark Souls Remastered to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. That said, Lara Kate Dale, a journalist from Kotaku UK, says that it is the responsibility of QLOC, a Polish studio responsible for the port of Injustice 2 for PC.
It is important to mention that Bandai Namco Entertainment has not said anything about this information, so it is good to take this information with a big grain of salt.
In other news, Bandai Namco recently confirmed that the game will run at 30 fps and 1080p on the Nintendo Switch. In addition, it is a fact that this new version of the game will not support cross-play, so forget the possibility of playing with your friends who will buy it for another platform.
Dark Souls Remastered will arrive on May 25th on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Do you think that Virtuos is the right studio to bring Dark Souls to Switch? Tell us in the comments below.
