Well, praise the sun. Today, FromSoftware revealed that Dark Souls Remastered is on its way for Xbox One, PS4, PC, and- interestingly- the Nintendo Switch.

Today’s Nintendo Direct Mini ended with an out-of-nowhere trailer revealing this new release of the first Dark Souls. The Souls series is finally coming to a Nintendo console, and it’s a very welcome surprise. Hardcore titles like Dark Souls are always a nice addition to Nintendo’s library, where hardcore gaming experiences have been at times rare.

Dark Souls Remastered will include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC, as well as improved framerate and resolution from the original title. In addition, the multiplayer cap has been increased to a six player maximum.

We also know about the game’s specs. For Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, the game will run at an upscaled 4K resolution and 60fps. For Xbox and PS4 gamers without their 4K gaming counterparts, it’ll run at 1080p at 30fps. The PC release will run at native 4K with all textures 2K unconverted and 60fps. Finally, the Nintendo Switch version will run at 1080p and 30fps; handheld mode will use 720p and 30fps.

Prepare to die when Dark Souls Remastered launches for Xbox One, PS4, Switch, and PC on May 25, 2018.
