Dark Souls: Remastered is coming to Switch

Your Switch is about to get a whole lot darker.

Dark Souls: Remastered is coming to Nintendo’s popular console, the company announced today via surprise Nintendo Direct Mini.

Now you can Lordran on your morning commute or when sitting on the throne, which is oddly appropriate for how bleak the game can be sometimes. 

This remastered version will come packing the Artorias of the Abyss DLC in addition to improved framerate and resolution compared to the original Dark Souls. This is the first time we’ll have been able to play any of the cult favorite Dark Souls series on a Nintendo platform, and hopefully this heralds the addition of the rest of the games being added to the Switch’s library.

From Software’s massively popular spiritual successor to Demon’s Souls made its debut back in 2011 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and now six years later it’s resurfaced on what may be one the most unlikeliest consoles possible.

The Switch has slowly but surely been adding more mature content to its lineup, with games like Skyrim fleshing out the system’s library and beefing up its selection of more hardcore offerings. 

You’ll be able to pick up Dark Souls: Remastered on May 25 this year.
