The games included are the recently announced Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls II: Scholar Of The First Sin, and Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades Edition. 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. Remaster does not just end up with graphics enhancements, but the game delivers online support for up to 6 players (initially up to 4) and officially dedicated servers, making Bandai Namco opening the door to bigger online support. 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.

The Dark Souls Remastered release date has been set for 25 May and we urge you to pick this up if you want to see it in its full glory. It's a "musou"-style game, which means you're on a battlefield surrounded by enemies, and you have to slash your way through hordes of them". These ports will be handled by other companies than that of the Switch port. As of yet, we do not know how that will be split between cooperators and invaders.

You can expect to die no matter where you are when the game hits the Switch on May 15th this year.

First released in late 2011, it took an influential approach to video game storytelling, letting its community of players piece together its backstory over the course of several years from well-hidden and often ambiguous hints hidden within the game world. A timed-exclusive hacker character will come with the game. The genre-defining title is coming back in high-definition detail and it also marks the debut of the Dark Souls series on a Nintendo platform for the first time ever.

The official product page is up on Nintendo's website. If the remastered version was exclusive to the Switch, we'd certainly be a lot more excited about it. It's also coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One the same day. A similar system would be an easy and non-intrusive way to breathe life into Dark Souls Remastered's multiplayer component.
