If you’re looking forward to die multiple times again in Dark Souls for Nintendo Switch, you’ll have to wait a bit longer.
Luckily, the remastered version will be released on time for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Due to the nature of causality, we must announce that the Nintendo Switch version of #DarkSoulsRemastered will be pushed back to summer of 2018, and with it, the release of the Solaire of Astora amiibo.— Dark Souls (@DarkSoulsGame) April 17, 2018
PC/PS4/X1 versions will maintain their May 25th release date.
According to the press release reported by Variety, Bandai Namco stated that “The new release timing gives the development team the time needed to make sure Nintendo Switch players can fully appreciate the true ‘Dark Souls’ experience anytime and anywhere, thanks to the unique portable nature of the Nintendo Switch console.”
However, Bandai Namco didn’t specify a new actual release date. But bear in mind, they haven’t done the network test that was supposed to be available prior the launch.
We will test the server performance of the Switch version apart from the others, and at a time closer to the Switch release. We will announce the dates when they are available.— Dark Souls (@DarkSoulsGame) April 17, 2018
In case you missed it, the remastered version will allow six players to join online to help with the quests in Lordran.
This remastered port will mark the series’ first entrance on a family-friendly Nintendo console. It will also include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC as well as enhanced resolution and framerate.
