For those who want a challenge and haven’t played Dark Souls back when it was released in 2011, here’s your chance! Bandai Namco announced Dark Souls Remastered for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC!
Set to launch this May 25, 2018, Dark Souls Remastered will run at 4K on the PS4 Pro, and Xbox One X and PC.
Developed by FromSoftware Inc., DARK SOULS: REMASTERED enables players to explore the twisted ancient land of Lordran in the first title of the critically acclaimed action role-playing series like never before. Experience the rich world of DARK SOULS in Dynamic 4K resolution when playing on a PlayStation 4 Pro system, Xbox One X, and STEAM. From their first timid steps to absolute mastery, players will build their characters by strategically adapting to daunting foes, exploring haunting locations, and amassing a large collection of weapons, armor, and magic spells to wield for a truly unique playstyle.
Hidden in the world of DARK SOULS: REMASTERED are nine online covenants to uncover that will motivate your online interactions. Collaboration or confrontation, support or betrayal – which allegiance will you choose? Up to six players can join together online to help, or hurt, each other throughout their quest.
If you own a PS4, and want to play the entire trilogy again, a Dark Souls Trilogy has also been announced, but only for the PS4 and only in Japan (so far). The compilation includes Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls I: Scholar of the First Sin, and Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades Edition. Nope, there’s no Demon Souls Remastered included.
Here’s what’s in the package:
- Original Book End
- Bookend “Waka Fire”
- Bookend “Senior Knight”
- Dark soul item dictionary
- Item Encycropedia Ⅰ
- Item Encycropedia Ⅱ
- Item Encycropedia Ⅲ
- Memorial art set
- Special art × 10 sheets
- Dedicated frame
There’s no word on whether NA or other parts of the world will get the compilation, but chances are, given how famous Dark Souls is, that’ll happen sooner rather than later.
