Dark Souls Remastered Switch

Back in January, it was announced that the infamously difficult action-RPG Dark Souls would be getting a remastered version and that the remaster would be coming to Nintendo Switch. In fact, Dark Souls: Remastered was first announced during a Nintendo Direct Mini stream. Originally, the game was set to release on May 25, with PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions later revealed to release on the same day. However, the Switch version has since been delayed, and received a vague release window of summer 2018. Now we have a new update, and we know when the game will finally be available on the Switch.

Bandai Namco recently announced that Dark Souls: Remastered will be available for the Switch on October 19. It may have just missed its summer 2018 release, but hey, at least there’s an actual release date now. Along with the game itself, the Solaire of Astora amiibo will launch on the same day. And just like with the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game, the Switch version will have its own Network Test to make sure online functionality works as intended. More details about when the Network Test will take place will be revealed at a later date.

Dark Souls: Remastered is currently available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
