Dark Souls Remastered was originally planned for release alongside the other iterations of the game back in May, since then Bandai Namco has been awfully quite about the Nintendo Switch version of the game being delayed for so long. Unfortunately, there hasn't even been any details provided to explain why there has been such a hefty delay on the handheld version of the game.
The Nintendo Switch version of the game will still release with the 'Solaire of Astora' amiibo, which when used will unlock the "Praise the Sun" emote within the game. About a week a go, there was an email sent out by Amazon to some people who pre-ordered Dark Souls Remastered for the Nintendo Switch, it revealed that the release date for the title was meant to be October 1st, that rumor has now been cleared up with the official announcement by Nintendo and the Dark Souls Twitter account. Dark Souls Remastered for the Nintendo Switch is scheduled for release on October 19th, for further information visit the official Dark Souls website here.
