"Dark Souls: Remastered" Revealed for Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC

Improved framerate and resolution in comparison to the original should augment the game as well, making this the first time we've seen a Dark Souls title on a Nintendo console. The game will run at an upscaled 4K and 60fpss on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. Pc players will have the option to run at a native 4K resolution.

Months ago there were rumors that a Dark Souls trilogy would be coming to the Nintendo Switch, but those reports were only half right: instead of all three games the Japanese publisher is launching the first as a remaster on the Switch.

Death of man in Dalkey not being treated as suspicious
His remains were discovered at around 8.30 this morning in a lane way that leads to an Apartment block just off Convent Road. They are still trying to identify the man but believe he is local and say they are treating the death with "an open mind".

Nintendo wasn't left out either, with the Switch version of Dark Souls Remastered also being announced through a Nintendo Direct Mini stream. Namco Bandai doesn't discuss what kind of frame rate we can expect on the standard PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but the hope is that we'll get 60fps there as well. Once the camera steadied the pyre was lit aflame while a hero stood over it, which is usually one of the most defining images of Dark Souls given that players save their games at the campfires. The Dark Souls box set is retailing 49,800 yen, which equates to around $440.

At long last, Nintendo will finally be getting in on the action with Dark Souls Remastered. It won't have the visual fidelity of the other platforms, but it does offer the option to play Dark Souls on a handheld. Dark Souls Remastered is set to be released on Switch on May 25th.
