From Software's masterpiece, and officially the greatest game of all time*, will receive a remastered edition in May this year. And while it wasn't immediately clear if the box set would be released outside Japan, publisher Bandai Namco has weighed in on that front, and the news isn't good for Dark Souls fans.
In case you haven't heard, Dark Souls is making its way to current-generation platforms in a new version of the game aptly titled Dark Souls: Remastered. The refresh will also be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. And while that will certainly be disappoint for some, the game will still have Upscaled 4K resolution and run at 60 FPS which are arguably far more important. Dark Souls II was already given the remaster treatment for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 back in 2014, under the subtitle Scholar of the First Sin. Namco Bandai doesn't discuss what kind of frame rate we can expect on the standard PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but the hope is that we'll get 60fps there as well. Nintendo'sofficial blurb says the Switch version will support up to six players via dedicated servers. It includes each game in the trilogy, with all the DLC, and also comes with each game's soundtrack on CD, a special art set, and an encyclopedia.
