Dark Souls Remastered announced Nintendo Switch, PS 4, Xbox One

There is no HDR lighting for the PS4 Pro version, ' wrote Dark Souls community head honcho, Vaati (via GearNuke). Dark Souls: Remastered marks the Dark Souls series debut on a Nintendo platform and for the first time ever, can be played on the go with the unique capabilities of the Nintendo Switch console.

You can catch up on the Dark Souls announcement and all the latest Switch happenings by checking out today's Nintendo Direct Mini.

Dark Souls Remastered is out on May 25th for the PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One.

Hidden in the world of DARK SOULS: REMASTERED are nine online covenants to uncover that will motivate your online interactions.

Hopefully, the PC version won't be so rough around the edges as the original release was, which had to be fixed up for the most part by modders.

While it's unfortunate that Dark Souls fans outside of Japan won't have a chance to purchase the collection in their native language, at least they can purchase all three games separately.

It would kind of explain the Nintendo of America Chibi-Robo tweet, which shares similarities with the famous "Praise the Sun" pose (above) from Dark Souls.

Though it's unclear just how Dark Souls: Remastered will perform undocked, my bet is that the Switch will run it at a standard 720p 30 fps (which isn't bad). The resolution is reported to be "upscaled" to 4k on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, with the enhanced consoles also supporting HDR. Let us know in the comments. The community can debate for eternity about the pros and cons of what that would entail - I'd personally be anxious about any significant changes - but a quality-of-life mechanic like roll staggering enemies (or even omnidirectional rolling while locked-on) would be a valuable addition.

Dark Souls was originally released for PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2011 and received generally positive reviews for its combat mechanics and deep lore; however, its challenging (some would say unforgiving) gameplay was met with mixed response.
