Prepare To Die On The Go, Dark Souls: Remastered Heads To Switch

“Prepare for tough challenges.”

“Prepare for tough challenges.”

Kotaku adds fuel to the fire stating that the game will be announced in a Nintendo Direct Mini later this afternoon, adding it's heading to PC, PS4, and Xbox One in addition to Nintendo Switch. Lordran and its cadre of nightmarish monsters will no doubt look even more haunting and treacherous with all of that lovely extra detail. Dark Souls' previous re-release on PC was dubbed the Prepare to Die edition, which makes it sound a separate version of the game.

Better lighting, improved special effects, and multiplayer that supports six players concurrently are all to be expected, says the report. Those who play the game on PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One X or PC will be able to take advantage of 4K resolution with 60fps. Dark Souls joins Skyrim and Doom as more hardcore offerings on Nintendo's new system.

There is also a plan to port the entire trilogy over, but we'll see how the first game works out on the hybrid console first.

The Switch rumour always involved all three Dark Souls game as well, which seemed unlikely given the sheer volume of content that would involve - for both developer and player.

The first trailer for Dark Souls Remastered has been embedded above.

In any event, Dark Souls: Remastered is due May 25, 2018. Demon's Souls' servers may still be going strong two years after release, but however long they do last, I'd bet Dark Souls' servers will certainly last much longer.
