BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe invites players back to the treacherous land of Lordran with DARK SOULS Ô : REMASTERED, available on 25 May, 2018 for the Nintendo SwitchÔ, PlayStationÒ4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, and PC. One bit of new information to come from this is that the Remaster will run on the Dark Souls 3 engine. Besides the games, the box set includes impressive bookends that look like a knight and a bonfire, art prints, dictionaries with descriptions for every item in the series, and six discs worth of Dark Souls music. The game will run at 60 fps on both the PS4 and Pro with the latter featuring improved resolution compared to the native 1080p on the regular PS4. It first released in 2011 on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC as a spiritual successor to Demon's Souls.

While we'll take any excuse to replay Dark Souls for the umpteenth time, we're not entirely sure why this remaster exists. Now it is finally a certainty as it was confirmed in Nintendo Direct 2018 that Dark Souls Remastered will indeed be heading to the Nintendo Switch in the near future. In the original version of Dark Souls, you could remap keyboard inputs, but not gamepad controls, making it harder for players with specific controller needs to circumvent physical disabilities.

Indie game Fe and Celeste, courtesy of the EA Originals incubator, will make its debut on the switch January 25.
