Some games try to scare you with bump-in-the-night shocks and far-off howls, but Dark Souls doesn't require such predictable methods of terror. In any case, the development of a remaster may also explain why the original Dark Souls has not seen any meaningful discounted in such a long time.
As it stands, the Dark Souls trilogy box set is rather expensive, costing 49,800 Yen or roughly $450.
In a Japanese retailer listing, it was first leaked that Dark Souls will get a remaster for the PS4. The company says Dark Souls: Remastered will run with improved framerate and resolution compared to the original version, and it will bundle in the Artorias of the Abyss expansion DLC. There will also be a separate team entirely for Dark Souls, like how the DOOM port was handled, for the Nintendo Platform to make sure that the game is adapted to the unique controls in the most effective way possible.
To the excitement of many around the world, Bandai Namco announced yesterday that Dark Souls would be getting remastered for all current-gen platforms. There's the soundtracks for each of the games, a bookend set for you to store everything, 10 art prints with frames and three large physical dictionaries with item descriptions for everything across the series.
The games that come with the Dark Souls Trilogy Box are Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, and Dark Souls 3: The Fire Fades Edition. Today during a mini-Nintendo Direct, Nintendo revealed Dark Souls: Remastered coming to Nintendo Switch on May 25. So far the box is only available for PS4 with no Xbox One, Windows, or Switch versions announced.
"How awesome that such a bad place could be so inviting. Dark Souls doesn't just surpass other dungeon crawlers; it skewers them with a razor-sharp halberd and leaves behind their soulless corpses".
