Nintendo wasn't left out either, with the Switch version of Dark Souls Remastered also being announced through a Nintendo Direct Mini stream. These ports are being handled by a separate company from the Switch port, and will feature rebuilt lighting and SFX based on Dark Souls 3, as well as upscaled textures. This is an exciting development for those who own a Switch and have never played Dark Souls before, but if the announcement got you Dark Souls veterans in the mood to give the game another go, then we've got some good news for you. The standard PS4 and Xbox One consoles will be 1080p60, with the Switch version locked at 1080p docked and 720p portable, both running at (hopefully a stable) 30FPS.
Similar to the Scholar of the First Sin edition of Dark Souls 2, the remaster will allow up to six players to join a game session - and increase of two over the original Dark Souls - though there's no confirmation on the mix of white (co-op) and black (pvp) phantoms.
From their first timid steps to absolute mastery, players will build their characters by strategically adapting to daunting foes, exploring haunting locations, and amassing a large collection of weapons, armour and magic spells to utilise for a truly unique playstyle.More news: EVERYTHING you need to know about tonight's Celebrity Big Brother live show
