UPDATE: Dark Souls Remastered has been confirmed. It will be out on May 25th for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
For all four platforms, Dark Souls Remastered will feature enhanced visuals. On the PC, PlayStation 4 Pro, and Xbox One X, Dark Souls Remastered will be playable at 4K resolution, 60 frames per second, while the Nintendo Switch version run at 1080p / 30FPS while the console is docked.
Original Story: Rumour: Original Dark Souls is Being Remastered With Dark Souls 3 Graphics
A story over on Kotaku from Laura Dale claims to have inside knowledge from both retail and developers that Dark Souls Remastered is in development. It will remake the original Dark Souls with the Dark Souls 3 visual package, including rebuilt lighting, special effects, and while we're at it, we’re hoping for high-resolution support and an uncapped frame rate.
The announcement itself will allegedly feature in a Nintendo Direct Mini which is expected to be shown today. In it, Nintendo will be focusing on the third-party offerings that will be coming to the Nintendo Switch throughout 2018.
If you’re one of the heathens/lost souls who don’t have a Switch yet, fear not - Dark Souls Remastered is also coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Aside from the enhanced visuals, the leak suggests the multiplayer player count will be upped to six players at any one time.
In addition to this, Laura Dale also intimates that the entire Dark Souls trilogy will find its way to the Switch eventually, although not in the form of the trilogy bundle that had been rumoured. If Bandai Namco could also find time to squeeze in a boss fight against an army of annoying Toads that would be fantastic, thanks.
Speculation is also mounting as to what else Nintendo could be preparing to announce within the upcoming Direct. Just about every rumour you could think of has been mooted at some point, whether that be GTA V, Smash Bros or Phoenix Wright, so it’s sure to be a surprise whatever it is. Details on the Nintendo Direct Mini are sketchy, to say the least. Normally Nintendo likes to announce them a few days in advance, but this time around it sounds as if Nintendo is going to announce the Direct mere hours before it’s due to go live.
