Following the Nintendo Direct mini, Bandai Namco has confirmed the remaster will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC as well, and on the same May 25 release date as already annouced for the Switch.
There still aren’t many details but the Xbox One X, PS4 Pro, and PC versions will all feature options for upscaled 4K resolution and 60fps gameplay – which is surprising as the existing PC version doesn’t allow for 60fps and it was implied it would take too much of a redesign to get the option working. Which suggests that quite a bit of care is being taken with this remaster.
The Switch version will have a maximum resolution of 1080p and 30fps when playing in TV mode.
It’s true, all of it. Or at least most of it. Nintendo’s Mini Direct has just been posted online out of nowhere and just as rumoured its final annoucement was Dark Souls Remastered. It’ll be out on May 25, but other than that there was zero information – and there’s nothing on the official product page yet either.
Assuming the rest of the rumour was correct though we should see confirmation of the other format versions fairly soon.
Website Kotaku claims that the rumours are true, and that the remaster will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC. However, the remaster will be released first on Switch and annouced during the finale of the next Nintendo Direct, which is rumoured to be today.
A new Nintendo Direct has been expected all week, but since it hasn’t been annouced yet it’s likely to be a late one if it is today. Kotaku’s sources describe it as a ‘mini’ Direct, so it’s possible the Dark Souls remaster will be the most significant announcement during it.

If the Japanese pre-order notice below is real then it looks like Dark Souls is getting a remaster after all, but seemingly only on PlayStation 4.
The image below turned up via forum ResetEra and although it’s all in Japanese, and therefore difficult to expose as a fake just by looking at it, apparently the barcode is unique and doesn’t seem to relate to any known product.
That still doesn’t mean it’s real, but a remaster has been rumoured for a long time now. Although it’s most commonly been associated with the Nintendo Switch, since developer FromSoftware are listed as a developer for the system but still haven’t announced anything.
The Switch rumour always involved all three Dark Souls game as well, which seemed unlikely given the sheer volume of content that would involve – for both developer and player.
The title in the pre-order image is ambiguous though, and although it probably refers to just the first game the optimistic could still construe it as including the entire trilogy.

If the image is real then we’d expect an official announcement very soon, and for it also to be released on Xbox One in the West.
A Switch version should be more than possible on a technical level, but there’s nothing here to suggest it’s actually happening.
