Nintendo had the lead announcement for this enhanced version of the beloved action role-playing game in January. Enhanced ports of older games, including The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, have found success on Nintendo’s portable/home console hybrid.
Along with the Switch version, the Dark Souls Solaire of Astora Amiibo is also delayed.
The remastered port will include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC, as well as improved framerate and resolution from the original “Dark Souls” game. This marks the franchise’s debut on a Nintendo platform and as a portable title. Remastered will deliver “unique capabilities” for the Switch version and dynamic 4K resolution to the PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and on Steam. Bandai Namco says that the game will allow up to six players to join online to help, or hurt, each other throughout their quest.
’Dark Souls: Remastered’ delivers the same great gameplay, online mechanics, and environmental storytelling that has inspired countless game players and developers,” Kasumi Yogi, associate brand manager for Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc., said in a statement. “We are excited to watch the thriving ‘Dark Souls’ community grow and support new players experiencing the title for the first time.”
The game will sell for $39.99 for the console versions, no price has been set for the steam version yet.
Based on other tweets and a press release from Bandai Namco, it seems the decision to delay Dark Souls Remastered is to make sure everything is running as smoothly as possible on Nintendo’s latest console. “The new release timing gives the development team the time needed to make sure Nintendo Switch players can fully appreciate the true Dark Souls experience anytime and anywhere, thanks to the unique portable nature of the Nintendo Switch console,” the press release reads.
