Bandai Namco announced the remastered version of the originalDark Soul game now they have revealed more info about how the game will run and look. Adding motion-controlled combat to Dark Souls could be a huge selling point for the game if From Software made a decision to add that feature to the remastered edition of the game. Some reports began circulating, misinforming original game owners that they would be entitled to special treatment when purchasing the remaster, but it turns out these reports were wrong. The Switch version will run at a 1080p/30fps in docked mode and 720p/30fps in handheld mode.
While we'll take any excuse to replay Dark Souls for the umpteenth time, we're not entirely sure why this remaster exists. PS 4 Pro and Xbox One X will play Dark Souls Remastered at upscaled 4k 60 FPS on PC you can choose.
Dark Souls Remastered will be released in the West on May 25, while the Dark Souls Trilogy Box will release a day earlier in Japan.
If you live in Japan, the set will include all three Dark Souls games, all DLC, the soundtracks for every game, bookends, 10 art prints and a frame, and three physical encyclopedias with the descriptions of every item in the series. The game is titled Dark Souls: Remastered and will release for all major platforms. It first released in 2011 on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC as a spiritual successor to Demon's Souls.
