In order to reach a more broad audience and re-release one of its most beloved franchises, Bandai Namco is bringing a remastered port of the original Dark Souls games across a slew of platforms.

Months ago there were rumors that a Dark Souls trilogy would be coming to the Nintendo Switch, but those reports were only half right: instead of all three games the Japanese publisher is launching the first as a remaster on the Switch. As the Switch has sold over 10 million units, meeting Nintendo's internal fiscal year estimates, it's only natural developers and publishers are seeing it as a major entry in the current console gen race. Details are slim at this point, but we do know the game will launch on May 25, 2018 for $39.99 on the platform.

Dark Souls: Remastered is also coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 consoles, with the added bonus of supporting 4K resolution if you own a PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, or have the proper PC hardware to support it.

"DARK SOULS: REMASTERED delivers the same great gameplay, online mechanics, and environmental storytelling that has inspired countless game players and developers," said Kasumi Yogi, Associate Brand Manager for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. "We are excited to watch the thriving DARK SOULS community grow and support new players experiencing the title for the first time."

As for a new Dark Souls...you shouldn't hold your breath. From Software is working on a weird new game that could very well be the next chapter in the Tenchu series.
