Dark Souls Remastered will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 25th, 2018, while the Nintendo Switch version will release sometime later this summer. However, the delay has caused the release date for both to be pushed back to summer 2018. Not only that, the video game company has also chose to delay the release of the Solaire of Astora amiibo. 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 for the industry. While this gives you some more time to sharpen your skills, it also means you won't be able to play Souls anywhere for a little while. However, Nintendo Switch owners will have to wait a while longer to get their hands on the title - the first Dark Souls game on a Nintendo console - due to it being delayed. Bandai just turned to Twitter and announced a delay of the game and the associated popular amiibo. "We apologize for the delay but rest assured, the extra time will improve your journey to Lordran", says Bandai. Re-experience the critically acclaimed, genre-defining game that started it all. Gamers can view additional information for the Nintendo Switch version here, and pre-orders are still available. Dark Souls: Remastered includes the main game plus the Artorias of the Abyss DLC.
