FromSoftware’s beloved (and feared) Dark Souls was remastered in HD and re-released back in May. Unfortunately, the Nintendo Switch version of the game apparently needed a little more time to cook. Publisher Bandai Namco initially announced that the Switch version had been delayed till Summer, but as the months passed and no updates were given, that window began to look unlikely. Today, we finally have our answer.
Bandai Namco has just announced on Twitter that Dark Souls Remastered launches on Nintendo Switch on October 19th. You’ll be able to pick up the Solaire of Astora amiibo on the same day. Bandai will also be holding a Network Test sometime before the game launches, so we’ll be on the lookout for more specifics in the coming weeks.
