Switch becomes Dark Souls of Nintendo consoles with Dark Souls Remastered
Jan 12 2018
There were a number of rumors going around that Dark Souls Remastered would be headed our way in the near future.
According to multiple sources, both in development and retail, in the next few hours Nintendo will announce a Nintendo Direct Mini to air shortly afterwards showing 2018 software for Switch. If we hear any further news of the release of this bundle outside of Japan, we'll be sure to let you know. Nintendo also provided an official release date: March 16.
The previously announced Switch version of PAYDAY 2 will include a new character named Joy, and will release on February 27.
Celeste comes from the developer of Towerfall, and is an indie action platformer coming to Switch on January 25.
"Explore and build your character to create a unique gameplay experience with a wide variety of weapons, armor, and magic".
However if you don't yet have a Nintendo Switch or have yet to play Dark Souls, don't worry. Do you want to mercilessly slash away at your enemies, or devastate them with powerful spells?
The online portion of the game is also getting an upgrade, too: instead of 1-4 players, six people can gather to either support or betray each other, finding a home among nine covenants online with dedicated servers.
KitGuru Says: The original PC port was notoriously badly done in comparison to its console counterparts, so it would be interesting to see how well the title performs on release day.
What games are you most excited for?
According to a Twitter user called bdsassy, it looks like a Dark Souls Remastered for PS4 has been spotted in the wild.
There has been no official confirmation of this from Dark Souls publisher Bandai Namco.
It is also rumored that Rockstar Games are looking to bring two well renowned titles in GTA V and Red Dead Redemption to the Nintendo Switch. It seems that it only took one generation for that decision to be made, as Dark Souls Remastered has been officially announced.
