A rumor has recently surfaced that hints at the first Dark Souls game being remastered for every console which included the Nintendo Switch.
According to a tweet from Marcus Sellars, the editor, and writer for Nintendo Switch Network, the news that the game will be remastered will be revealed during an event that Bandai Namco will hold on Dec. 15. Sellars has a pinned tweet announcing the event that reads “5 unannounced games will be shown off during the event” and that Nintendo will be featured.
The news about the Dark Souls remaster had come in a form of a reply from Sellars to his pinned tweet. Here, he had confirmed that one of the games that Bandai Namco will announce is a remastering of Dark Souls. This tweet was deleted, but the removed tweet had been screenshotted before it was taken down. The deleted tweet can be seen below, courtesy, Seasoned Gaming, and Reddit.
If the tweet from Sellars is true, the rerelease of Dark Souls as a remastered version for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch will be big news for anyone who played the game when it was had been released in 2011 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Following Demon’s Souls, a game that announced that the online servers were shutting down, Dark Souls was the first trip for many into the Souls universe. While the journey had continued with Dark Souls II, Dark Souls III, and even Bloodborne, the first Dark Souls game holds a very special place in gamers’ catalogs.
But like with any rumor, the idea of Dark Souls being remastered for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch must be taken with a grain of salt until we see it on Dec. 15 during Bandai Namco’s event.
