Dark Souls Officially Confirmed for PC and Consoles, Including Switch

Dark Souls Remastered

Dark Souls Remastered arrives May 25 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Also coming to Switch this spring is a new Mario Tennis game. The Switch is not going to turn into a dumping ground for games that came out on the Xbox 360 or Wii U four or five years ago. The remastered version will be released on 25 May 2o18 with "improved framerate and resolution", according to Nintendo. Also included is the soundtrack to all three games spread across six discs, ten art prints with a frame, and three item dictionaries which come with descriptions for every item found in the Dark Souls series. It will be the first Mario Tennis title since the Game Boy Advance iteration to include a story mode. I mean, who doesn't want to vie for the match point against an oversized piranha plant?

This "complete" release will give the 2008 game, as well as the downloadable add-on "Artorias of the Abyss", an important facelift.

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.

And you have to ask: why wouldn't they?

Another action-RPG port heading to Switch is Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA.

Put simply there's a motherload of games and extra content coming to the Switch to bolster its now healthy lineup.

A port of the heist game Payday 2 is heading to Switch on February 27. Just watch out if you're scared of spooky masks.

Nintendo made a lot of big announcements during their Nintendo Direct presentation today, but this one is easily one of the biggest.

This means that we'll soon be able to play through the entire Dark Souls trilogy on modern consoles.
