After the surprise announcement of Dark Souls Remastered from Nintendo's mini-direct yesterday, a lot of speculation started about what this new version of From Software's masterpiece would entail.

Unfortunately, we're still waiting for details regarding how this game will remaster Dark Souls and how it will perform on Nintendo Switch.

While the Playstation 4 and Xbox One won't have the same quality of visuals as their premium models will, we'll still be getting a revamped Dark Souls game to play.

The teaser trailer for Dark Souls Remastered was frustratingly brief and didn't offer a good look at the updated gameplay. Another change happening according to this same source is that the multiplayer number will be expanded to six concurrent players, while also stylizing the first game to be more similar to that of the third installment.

Dark Souls would go on to influence a slew of titles such as last year's Nioh, Absolver, and Bandai Namco's upcoming action JRPG Code Vein.

It's Dark Souls news day!

That report also explained that FromSoftware was waiting to see the financial performance of the Nintendo Switch before it proceeded with any plans. However, it appears that these ports are being addressed by a separate company than the Switch port. Dark Souls' brilliant boss fights, incredible combat system, punishing difficulty, learn by doing design, and intricate worlds made it a revolution in game design that is often cited by modern developers as a turning point in the industry.
