Dark Souls: Remastered Nintendo Switch Release Date

Undead fans rejoice as long-awaited Nintendo Switch version of Dark Souls: Remastered finally gets a release date.

Fans had been petitioning to get a remastered version of action role-playing original Dark Souls from developer From Software and publisher Bandai Namco for longer than you think. They even got that wish fulfilled as Dark Souls: Remastered is currently available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Unfortunately, Nintendo Switch version was left out and delayed to summer 2018 by the publisher to an unspecified release date. Today, that day is announced on Twitter to be October 19, 2018.

Despite having been scheduled to release alongside other major platforms as it was revealed in January's Nintendo Direct, the game was delayed and players were obviously upset. Now the previously planned Solaire of Astora Amiibo will release alongside it for you to unlock "Praise the Sun" in-game gesture with it. Those who were eager to explore Lordran in their next gen Nintendo handheld console on the go can now finally look forward to this because Artorias of the Abyss DLC is also included in the package.

Apparently, Bandai Namco is also interested in holding a network test online for the Switch version before it launches but we don't have much detail on the fact just yet. Dark Souls: Remastered will run on Switch at 30 FPS and 1080p resolution if played on a TV set. The improved rates in better resolution let you enjoy the creepy vibe of the series more intensely. Although there are accusations of the game being extremely difficult, it yet leaves a long-lasting memorable impression on your mind.

Dark Souls: Remastered is Discounted for PC

Those who already own Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition from Steam will get 50% off on Dark Souls Remastered.

Following an announcement in January, we know now that publisher Bandai Namco will release a Remastered version of From Software's original Dark Souls as Dark Souls: Remastered for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Back then, there was also an argument over whether or not fans who already own a copy on PC and the responses came from publisher's spokesperson seemed more confusing and contradicting than our own guesses. Finally, it has come to an end.

Initially after announcement a few months back, we came to know from Bandai Namco that the game will be available on all platforms for a same price and there will be no discount. They came clean by stating that rumor of a discount came from an error on their e-commerce site, which has since been removed. Later, another post on Steam forums by new community manager for Bandai Namco neither denies nor confirms what to expect on the discounted price topic at all.

Finally we can come clear on this to end all conflict of information by declaring that if you already have owned Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition on Steam then you would get a 50% discount on Dark Souls: Remastered after it is launched. The remastered version is originally priced $39.99, so at half-price, it's like you are getting an upgrade for the game on PC. However, the "Prepare To Die" edition that came with added DLC along with the main game will be removed from Valve's store within May 9.

Many players will still be complaining even after the price reduction because a remastered edition is nothing much but mostly a graphically enhanced version and we really cannot argue on that point as it is true. Besides, none of the developer or publisher has revealed anything about including new features or so. There is no scope of price cut for any console owners as this title was not released on any other platforms than PC. We just hope that the game fares better in providing experience than various PC mods out there.

Also, did we mention that Bandai Namco has dropped another brief gameplay trailer from the re-release to remind us what is waiting in there to creep upon players? It is right below for you to check out.

Dark Souls is considered as one of the best action role-playing game ever made and there has been request for Remastered edition for quite long and scheduled for May 25 release on all the mentioned consoles above except Switch, which will debut on Nintendo's hybrid platform at a later date. It seems that just like the game itself, the road to Lordran is filled with preemptive trouble before you even engage in fight with demons and wraiths during your in-game quests.

Dark Souls: Remastered on Nintendo Switch Delayed

It was back in January 2018, when we first came to know through Nintendo Direct Mini about a planned Remastered version of From Software’s action role-playing original Dark Souls game on Nintendo Switch that was scheduled for May 25 release. Earlier this month, we have a good look at some exclusive gameplay footage of the game in 4K, courtesy of PlayStation Underground. Unfortunately, it was announced today that Switch version is delayed for summer 2018.

With an official Tweet, publisher Bandai Namco revealed that release date for Dark Souls: Remastered is currently pushed back to summer of 2018.

However, planned versions for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are still coming out the same day. Though they have not specified the nature of their causality which caused the delay, we have one very simple theory in mind. It seems that Switch port was being developed by a different team other than the ones who worked for console editions and they have faced some unexpected problem that would take time to solve.

Also, Solaire of Astora from the game was about to get his own amiibo figurine that was supposed to arrive on the same day is also delayed till Switch version’s new release date. Namco assured that they will make it up to you for this delay by improving your gameplay experience as you journey to Lordran. The network test on Nintendo eShop is still due following their initial announcement of this project.

Dark Souls: Remastered was promised to us to deliver enhanced 4K resolution and improved frame rate. It makes us think too that what might possibly happen to a game that showcased a steady gameplay at PAX East, which eventually pushed back their deadline for the time being. If this attempt to remaster project is successful with support from fans then From Software may consider about Dark Souls II and Dark Souls III as well.

Dark Souls: Remastered New Gameplay

A very few games that are tough as nails like From Software’s action role-playing game Dark Souls can garner a fan following that keeps up a petition for a Remastered Edition for this long, which finally is paying off. May 25, 2018 will see the release of Dark Souls: Remastered on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The appeal for the original title hasn't faded a little in past seven years.

Many revelatory action RPG came and go, Dark Souls II and Dark Souls III were released, Sony released PlayStation 4 console but still, we very much needed Dark Souls: Remastered. Bandai Namco seriously deserves some praise to bring back tons of fans' dreams into life by working on it. Fans worldwide are just not waiting for a full remake treatment but need added content and improvements on original title.

As a courtesy of PlayStation Underground, we have exclusive gameplay footage from world of Dark Souls: Remastered in 4K!




The exclusive gameplay showed above is captured in 4k resolution and 60 FPS as a preview of how things are going to be in Remastered Edition.

Getting back at it with protagonist Chosen Undead is like a ride back memory lane exploring open world of Lordran around you as you cautiously take your steps behind a shield. Veteran players had also taken time adjusting to the gameplay at start. If you were a skilled player of your time then figuring out playing part once again with Dark Souls: Remastered will be no problem for you. Your undead adversaries will fall before you as you constantly make progress.

World of Dark Souls

Players who have been through Bloodborne and Dark Souls III know how it is around with a mob on your tail. In comparison to that, original Dark Souls can be pretty quiet and lonely. Well, don't just get depressed just yet. Plenty of booby traps and sudden ambush attacks every now and then will keep things exciting for you. That's right. All the items and enemies are right there for you. So, keep your eyes open to protect your hide from those sneaky undead residents.

A fine aspect is of course the soundtrack, which is out there blending perfectly with the environment yet it's almost non-existent. Your 4K-experience will be intensified if you just put a pair of headphones on. It will make boss killing moment or facing opponents like Black Knights or giant rats as real as it can get. Once you play the game, you will realize that they have done more changes and tweaks than a few visual upgrades.

Another great thing about Dark Souls: Remastered is that now it allows more players to join in. Originally, four-player were allowed to take part in their quest but six-players are accessible for multiplayer. Try imagining six friends who enjoys Dark Souls with somewhat same level of intensity in a same-room because, it is also coming to Switch.

Prepare Not to Die

Aside from playing at a 30 FPS rate and a 720p handheld mode, we believe it has great potential considering an exciting six person multiplayer mode. This could literally give the title an overwhelming reception from Switch owners and led to Remastered Editions of Dark Souls sequels. Although, TV mode offers you a 1080p display, having six television sets on a same room is very unlikely to happen.

Dark Souls was originally released for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 by developer From Software and publisher Bandai Namco back in 2011. It has a notorious reputation for being ruthlessly difficult among fans but the sooner you will get a grip at what is going on and what you want to do, you will pass through pretty easily. Hold onto it and don't just leave the battlefield at first sign of trouble.
