There is no information as to whether there will be any content updates as there was with the Scholar of the First Sin remaster of Dark Souls 2. Rumors had been swirling all day, but at Nintendo Direct Mini, Dark Souls: Remastered was formally announced for the Switch. But that's not all, as the publisher had another surprise in store for fans of the notoriously hard action series.
Developed by FromSoftware Inc., DARK SOULS: REMASTERED allows players to explore the twisted ancient land of Lordran in the first title of the critically acclaimed action role-playing series like never before.
Namco Bandai's announcement makes no mention of whether or not we can expect the other games in the Dark Souls series to launch on the Switch. But based on the announcement it seems that the set includes all three Dark Souls games, a six-disc soundtrack collection, Dark Souls-themed bookends, a collector's book, and some art prints.
The box set itself is exciting for fans of the franchise who will surely jump at the chance to bag some cool-looking merchandise.
It's time to light a bonfire and praise the sun, because Dark Souls is returning from the dead once more.
Dark Souls: Remastered will run $40 and will be up for grabs May 25. In fact, FromSoft has done just that, and you'll be able to die again and again on your current generation platform of choice, including Nintendo Switch, starting May 25. However, there will be a great discount for all PC owners of the original game. If we hear any further news of the release of this bundle outside of Japan, we'll be sure to let you know.
