Remakes have been rumoured for release on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The original title launched on Xbox 360 and PS3 back in 2011, followed by a PC version a year later. In terms of resolution, Dark Souls: Remastered will offer native 4K resolution at 60 fps.

While it hasn't been confirmed that other premium consoles will be getting all of these enhancements, Bandai Namco has detailed in a press release that both PC and Xbox One X would similarly support 4K resolution.

Praise the sun and prepare to die, because From Software is remastering the original Dark Souls for a re-release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

Obviously Dark Souls: Remastered's arrival on Nintendo Switch is a huge deal for the console. The Direct event will showcase Nintendo Switch software for 2018, with Dark Souls Remastered being the closing announcement. One bit of new information to come from this is that the Remaster will run on the Dark Souls 3 engine.

The mini-direct showcased a short teaser trailer of the game and no gameplay footage.

However if you don't yet have a Nintendo Switch or have yet to play Dark Souls, don't worry. Then again, the fact that the Remaster is coming out on all consoles simultaneously probably means there won't be too much special Nintendo consideration for it.

Here are 7 things we hope Dark Souls Remastered fixes. Of course, the game will be playable docked and undocked, meaning that this will be the first time that players will be able to take the game on the road.

The multiplayer functionality has been bolstered as well, allowing up to six players to join together in a single session for jolly cooperation, up from the maximum of three in the original. For the Nintendo Switch, the game will run in 1080p at 30fps in TV mode, according to Bandai Namco.

A Dark Souls: Remaster has always been something that the community has clamored for, and initial reaction on the internet is incredibly positive.
