    According to multiple sources, both in development and retail, in the next few hours Nintendo will announce a Nintendo Direct Mini to air shortly afterwards showing 2018 software for Switch. As part of this Nintendo Direct, Dark Souls Remastered will be revealed, updating the original game to be playable portably for the first time. Our sources say this is the closing announcement of the direct.

    A few hours later it will be announced that Dark Souls Remastered is also coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC. These ports are being handled by a separate company from the Switch port, and will feature rebuilt lighting and SFX based on Dark Souls 3, as well as upscaled textures. One change we've been made aware of is that multiplayer will be expanded to support six concurrent players, which makes sense if the goal is to get Dark Souls' covenant system working a little more smoothly.

    One of our sources indicates that Bandai Namco plans to bring all three Dark Souls games to Switch eventually, but the oft-rumoured 'trilogy' bundle is not how this will be happening – yet. The Dark Souls Remaster will be launching in May on all platforms.

    I've never played any of the games, but it would be nice if the original was "fixed.

    I expect this to be quite expensive though, even if they do give owners of the original game a discount. They might not even do that though.

    Hoping they mean new textures and not just upscaled though.

    Well I didn't even brought the DS 2 or any other prior to DS1, but I'm curious to see the improvements to the main game.

    Nintendo first party games are top notch and now with third party dev support Switch success is unstoppable.

    I wouldn't mind proper vista textures and II+III type multi directional rolling. If it's just a direct asset port to the III engine with the faster animations and combat system I'm not sure im all that interested..

    Came here to post about this, lols!

    PC will be native 4K, uncompressed 2K textures and 60 fps acc. to Kotaku!

    Yes yes yes! I know what I'll be doing this summer!

    It would be extra cool if you could use your DS original character / save game but I don't mind starting over at all.

    Praise the port :D

    I would like to think From learned a lesson from his DS2 DX11 disaster (DX9 launch version was not compatible due to changes in bosses, enemies and NPC locations) but i'm not confident..

    I only hope dark Souls 1 owners at least get a discount option for upgraded, i don't expect nothing free from them.

    Yeh but I'll gladly pay full price too, MSRP for console versions is 39.99 USD so not too bad, Steam version could be cheaper still.

    Given DS 3 was a solid PC port this should be solid too I dare assume.

    Not going to happen.

    I bought my PS4 to play it (along other exclusive titles) and never regreted it

    Sony exclusives are...REAL exclusives.

    Nioh was a bit of surprise but it was not a first party game.

    Demon Souls and Bloodborne will remain exclusives for their consoles.

    I played the 2nd and the 3rd Dark Souls. I was waiting for some discount (and mostly free time) to start playing the one (that costs 20 usd in steam). Now with this news.. I better wait for this one and start playing with anyone else in this remastered wave.

    I own DS1 but could never really play it due to horrible kb+m support. I am just not a controller guy. If this has the right support and doesn't just feel tacked on I just might have to try it.

    After paying full price for the original crappy port, I should get this for free.
