Dark Souls: Remastered Gets New Switch Release Date

When Dark Souls: Remastered for Nintendo Switch got delayed earlier this year, gamers were understandably disappointed.

Nearly three months after the remaster launched on PS4, Xbox One and PC, however, it finally has a new Nintendo Switch release date: October 19th.

Bandai Namco states that the Switch version of Dark Souls: Remastered will run at 30fps in both docked and handheld modes. While it’ll run at 720p in handheld mode though, it’ll run at 1080p when docked. Of course, the Switch version of Dark Souls: Remastered will also include all of the DLC for the title, and its online features are enhanced to allow for more players than the original release.

To further please fans, the Solaire of Astora amiibo figure will release on the same day. Those who pick it up will be able to perform the “Praise the sun” gesture from the outset of their adventure, but it can also be earned by simply playing the game. Good news for those who want to keep their purchase sealed, or those who simply aren’t interested in buying it.

It goes without saying that we’re excited for Dark Souls: Remastered on the Switch. Hopefully it lives up to the high standard set by its release on other formats just a few months ago.
