The Switch version of Dark Souls Remastered will launch worldwide on October 19, publisher Bandai Namco and developer FromSoftware announced.
An online network test will be scheduled prior to its release.
On the same day of its release, an Amiibo figure based on the famous Solaire of Astora will also be available. It will allow the “true Warrior of the Sunlight to prove their faith by using the ‘Praise the Sun’ gesture from the beginning of the adventure.” (This gesture can also be obtained through regular gameplay.)
Here is an overview of the game, via Bandai Namco:
With the unique portable capabilities of the Nintendo Switch, players will be able to experience Dark Souls’ groundbreaking action-RPG gameplay that has inspired millions of players around the world anywhere at any time.
