Dark Souls: Remastered for Switch slips to “later this summer”

Bandai Namco this morning dropped off a bit of bad news for Nintendo Switch owners counting the days until Dark Souls: Remastered launches. The Switch version and the Solaire amiibo have unfortunately been bumped from the original May 25th, 2018 release date to a more nebulous “later this summer”.

From the brief note they sent over, it just sounds like the Switch version needs some more development and polish time. See that below.

The PS4, Xbox One and PC/Steam versions are still on track for May 25th.

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. is confirming that DARK SOULS: REMASTERED for Nintendo Switch, as well as the Solaire amiibo, will be moving from their original May 25, 2018 release date to later this summer. The new release timing gives the development team the time needed to make sure Nintendo Switch players can fully appreciate the true DARK SOULS experience anytime and anywhere, thanks to the unique portable nature of the Nintendo Switch console.

The PlayStation 4 system, Xbox One, and STEAM versions of DARK SOULS: REMASTERED will be released on May 25, 2018.
