Get Ready To Die All Over Again In High Definition!
By this point everyone and their grandmother has played or at least heard of Dark Souls; the hack and slash game that was ridiculously difficult yet oh so addictive. The Gothic architecture, the enigmatic lore, the beautifully designed yet infuriating boss fights, it was a true marvel that continues to inspire other games to this day!
While there will always be a tremendous amount of respect for the original, the series has branched out of the years, with sequels and spiritual successors like Dark Souls III and Bloodborne keeping everything fresh and just as challenging. Aside from nostalgia, what reason is there to play the first Dark Souls again?
How about the fact it’s now getting a remastered edition?
According to an article on Gamespot –
Bandai Namco has confirmed that Dark Souls Remastered is being released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 25. This is in addition to the Nintendo Switch version of Dark Souls Remastered revealed during the surprise Direct event. According to a press release, Dark Souls Remastered is being developed by From Software, the studio behind the original trilogy, instead of being outsourced to a third-party studio.
Dark Souls Remastered will also support “up to six players” for online multiplayer. A Dark Souls Trilogy box has been announced for PlayStation 4 in Japan. It features Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, Dark Souls 3: The Fire Fades Edition. Additionally, it will have soundtracks for each of the games, knight and bonfire bookends, an encyclopedia, and a special art set. As of yet this has not been announced for other regions.
