Dark Souls Remastered originally released on May 25 on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. The title received some visual enhancements alongside a resolution bump and a more stable framerate. In our review, Dan Tack called it an “incredible experience” and praised the framerate changes, making areas like Blighttown finally “playable” on console, and on PC without a third party fix.
The Switch version will have a locked 30fps and 1080p resolution when docked, alongside a 720p resolution in handheld mode. The game will have all the same content as the other versions and will launch alongside the Solaire amiibo.
So glad to finally see the game coming to the Nintendo Switch. The more Dark Souls out in the world, the better.
