Dark Souls Nintendo Switch Beta And Amiibo Confirmed
Today’s Nintendo Direct showed off a bit more of what to expect for the Nintendo Switch version of Dark Souls Remastered, including details of a new Dark Souls amiibo to go with the upcoming remaster.
It’s not clear yet what the Solaire amiibo will do when used with Dark Souls: Remastered(or other Switch software) but it would certainly be the best way to trigger the “Praise the sun!” emote in-game. (Update: That’s exactly what it does. “By tapping this amiibo, the popular ‘Praise the Sun’ gesture can be used with reckless abandon from the start of the game,” Nintendo said in a news release.)
Additionally, the Nintendo Direct brought word that a network test beta will be coming sometime before launch. Further specifics were not shared, but it will afford players an opportunity to try out the game ahead of its release.
A remastered edition of Dark Souls is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC in addition to Switch. Each of these versions includes both the Artorias of the Abyss DLC and various technical improvements to the game’s resolution and framerate. It’s due out on May 25, as is the Amiibo figure.
Check out the Trailer:
Dark Souls and Amiibo fans have reason to rejoice as the launch of the game will bring the first Souls-themed Amiibo into existence. The figure depicts the Warrior of Sunlight, Solaire of Astora, praising the sun, as he tends to do. If you tap the figure against your pro controller or Joy-Con, you can make your avatar do the gesture from the start of your adventure.
The Nintendo Switch version of the game will be arriving around the same time as the PS4 sees the release of the Dark Souls Trilogy box set. The console versions of the Dark Souls Remastered edition will see resolution and framerate improvements to the notoriously ugly and choppy original. Dark Souls Remastered will sell for $39.99.
