We should have seen it all coming, but it looks like we are getting Dark Souls: Remastered now and it is coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 25th. Not only that, but it is also coming to the Switch on the same day as Namco and FromSoftware did not want to leave anyone left out and also break that barrier to a Nintendo platform. Yes, you will soon be able to take your Dark Souls with you and have all of the pains of the game while on the move. If that happens to be your jam for the game or you can just keep playing the game at home and experience all of the new visuals in that way. Of course, you will only get those 4K visuals on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions of the game but it is all a start.
In addition to all of the updated visuals for Dark Souls: Remastered, it will also house the Artorias Of The Abyss DLC in there for more fun. That and it will also mix up the multiplayer a bit by swapping out the one to four player option to a one to six player option. Those extra two options to help or hinder you can make the whole thing feel a bit different right? Or just looking over your shoulder constantly if you do not happen to be playing with just friends in Dark Souls: Remastered. It is an option and you may give it a try or ignore it all completely. It is up to you to figure out for now.
