It was first reported last year that a remastered version of Dark Souls might be officially announced soon and Bandai Namco did just that in January this year. It announced that this genre-defining game would be remastered and released for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Unfortunately, Nintendo Switch owners will now have to wait a bit longer because Bandai Namco has confirmed that Dark Souls: Remastered release for the Switch has been delayed.
The release time frame hasn’t been changed for the remastered version that’s headed for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It was originally promised that these platforms and the Switch would get the title on May 25th, 2018. All of these platforms excluding the Nintendo Switch will receive Dark Souls: Remastered on May 25th.
Bandai Namco has announced that Dark Souls: Remastered for Nintendo Switch has been delayed to “summer of 2018.” That’s a vague timeframe but it’s clear that Switch owners will have to wait a couple of months at the very least to finally get their hands on Dark Souls: Remastered.
That’s not all. It has also been confirmed that the Solaire of Astora amiibo has been delayed as well to the summer of this year. It’s unclear when an official release date is going to be confirmed for the Switch iteration of this title and the amiibo.
Due to the nature of causality, we must announce that the Nintendo Switch version of #DarkSoulsRemastered will be pushed back to summer of 2018, and with it, the release of the Solaire of Astora amiibo.
PC/PS4/X1 versions will maintain their May 25th release date.
