A few hours later it will be announced that Dark Souls Remastered is also coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Yesterday, Bandai Namco Entertainment delighted fans with the announcement of a Dark Souls trilogy box set that is set to include Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, and Dark Souls 3: The Fires Fade Edition, exclusively for PlayStation 4. Playing the game on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X will allow players to enjoy the game at upscaled 4K resolution.
Of course the PC version of the game will be able to do everything listed above, but more importantly Dark Souls will be running in native 4K so players of the classically hard game can watch themselves die over and over as they progress through a much more attractive world.
Bandai Namco and FromSoftware have also released the following image for Dark Souls Remastered. In case of the Switch, when handheld, the game will run at 720p obviously at 30 FPS and when docked the game will support up to 1080p HD at 30 FPS. Along with that, during Direct event, the game is also confirmed for Nintendo Switch. From their first timid steps to absolute mastery, players will build their characters by strategically adapting to daunting foes, exploring haunting locations, and amassing a large collection of weapons, armor, and magic spells to wield for a truly unique playstyle. Dark Souls theorist VaatiVidya had claimed that this new port would be using engine assets from Dark Souls 3 and would contain HDR lighting and some PS4 Pro enhancements.
Dark Souls rewards and encourages obsession, and it's had plenty of super expensive merchandise before now.
The Dark Souls Trilogy box set will release in Japan on May 25 for 49,800 yen. One change we've been made aware of is that multiplayer will be expanded to support six concurrent players, which makes sense if the goal is to get Dark Souls' covenant system working a little more smoothly.
