Dark Souls Remastered and the Solaire amiibo have been delayed on Switch


DARK SOULS: REMASTERED will be available 25 May, 2018 for PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC.

Bandai Namco has revealed that Dark Souls: Remastered on Switch has been delayed until the summer, along with the special Solaire amiibo.

Those hoping to experience Dark Souls: Remastered on the Nintendo Switch will have to wait a bit longer. Regardless, I'm still looking forward to returning to Lordran for the tenth time. While this gives you some more time to sharpen your skills, it also means you won't be able to play Souls anywhere for a little while.

Remastered will deliver "unique capabilities" for the Switch version and dynamic 4K resolution to the PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and on Steam.

No reason for the delay has been given but presumably it's proving harder than expected to get the game running on Nintendo's modestly-powered console. While this remastered was originally planned for a May 25 release on the console-handheld hybrid, the date has now been pushed to sometime this summer.

Re-experience the critically acclaimed, genre-defining game that started it all. The Dark Souls series is notorious for having extremely hard, unforgiving gameplay and mysterious plots.
