Dark Souls Remastered Switch Will Run At 1080p/30 When Docked

Delve Into the World of DARK SOULS Like Never Before with PlayStation 4 Pro System and Xbox One X Enhancements and Portability with Nintendo Switch! Although it is not a new entry into the series, the remaster will bring a lot of updates and quality of life changes for the current generation of consoles.

Dark Souls Remastered will include not only the Dark Souls game but also the Artorias of the Abyss downloadable expansion. Up to six players can join up to both help or hinder each other in the world of Lordran. More than anything else, though, it's great that Bandai Namco finally listened to what fans have asking about for years and chose to remaster Dark Souls 1 at all. For the newer Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro versions, the game will run at an upscaled 4K resolution while still maintaining 60 fps.

Though it's unclear just how Dark Souls: Remastered will perform undocked, my bet is that the Switch will run it at a standard 720p 30 fps (which isn't bad). Additionally, the title will come with dedicated servers as opposed to the the peer-to-peer connection that made online play in the original a hassle. Not only is the Dark Souls trilogy box set exclusive to PS4, though, it's also exclusive to Japan.

From Software's masterpiece, and officially the greatest game of all time*, will receive a remastered edition in May this year.

Nintendo, of course, will focus on the Switch versions of their various announcements, but as Kotaku report, a different studio is apparently focusing on PS4, Xbox One and, yes, PC versions of the remaster.
