Dark Souls Remastered is coming to Switch, Xbox One, PS4, and PC

That’s according to “multiple sources” on the internet, and not actually totally legit for real confirmed, but those same anonymous industry informants are also claiming that the game will be properly announced sometime today, so I guess we’ll know soon enough.
Kotaku UK reports that Nintendo will introduce Dark Souls Remastered for Switch during a Direct Mini conference “in the next few hours”, with a subsequent confirmation for Xbox One and PS4 “a few hours later”. The new version of the game will apparently feature reworked lighting, sound, and textures based on Dark Souls 3, and include multiplayer support for up to six concurrent players.
First launched on PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2011, Hidetaka Miyazaki and From Software’s masochism sim has become almost a genre of its own, with an appropriately named Prepare to Die Edition following on PC the next year. Two sequels have also been released since then, but – like most cult-popular series – the original maintains a smug sort of mystique among fans who probably mostly didn’t even finish it.
