Bandai Namco finally announced today the release date of the much awaited Switch version of the highly-acclaimed Dark Souls: Remastered. Originally scheduled for release earlier this year with the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions, Bandai Namco had to delay the Switch version due to unforeseen circumstances.
An online network test will be scheduled for the Switch version of Dark Souls: Remastered prior to release. As always, more information about it will be release as soon as it’s available.
As for the Solaire of Astora Amiibo, it will also be released alongside the game on October 19, 2018.
With the unique portable capabilities of the Nintendo Switch, players will be able to experience DARK SOULSâ€™ groundbreaking action-RPG gameplay that has inspired millions of players around the world anywhere at any time.
