Yesterday, Dark Souls fans got to rejoice for a whole new reason, for the original title was getting an upgrade via Dark Souls: Remastered. What’s more, the game is going to be coming to not just the Xbox One, PS4, and PC, but it’ll also be coming out on the Nintendo Switch, a first for the series. Since the game is coming out, a lot of questions and rumors about the title have surfaced. For example, since this is a remaster, and it’s coming out on Steam, do people who have the original Dark Souls on Steam get a discount like other games do on the service?
Well, a representative of Bandai Namco (publisher of the series) has answered that question, “I have been told it is the same price for all platforms. There is no discount.”
Sorry Steam players! You’ll have to pay full price just like the rest of us. The other big question was whether the game would use the engine from Dark Souls 3. Sadly, the representative had “nothing to say” on that front.
Just the idea alone of Dark Souls: Remastered is intoxicating. For now, we can get the original “flawed masterpiece” of a game with updated graphics and other features that are standard on the new consoles. For example, the Switch version will have many different ways to play, as well as portable play (which I guarantee you will make people buy the game again).
Plus, Dark Souls is just plain awesome. This is a game that was developed to challenge players to the bitter end. Emphasis on “bitter”, because that’s what you get when you play this game! The challenge is superior, and inspired other game developers to try and mimic the difficulty in order to encourage players to play their games.
So while Dark Souls may not be continuing, it is going to be reborn on May 25th.
