Dark Souls Remastered (and Solaire of Astora amiibo) now releasing in October worldwide

Dark Souls Remastered was first announced for March 24th (Japan) / March 25th (Europe and North America), but it was later delayed to this Summer. Unfortunately, as summer weeks just went by without a trace of an announcement in sight, it became pretty clear there would be another delay.

And today, Bandai-Namco confirmed it: Dark Souls Remastered will be released on October 18th in Europe and North America. Of course, the Solaire of Astora amiibo will also be released on the same day in all regions. A quick reminder: the amiibo allows you to use the “Praise the Sun” gesture from the beginning of the adventure (though you can unlock it normally, without the amiibo).

With tense exploration and fearsome foes, the twisted world of DARK SOULS: REMASTERED is full of trials and tribulations, extreme battles, diverse weaponry and powerful magic. Players can customise their character to exactly suit their play style, should it be a heavily armored merciless warrior or a frail but mighty sorcerer. The Nintendo Switch version of DARK SOULS: REMASTERED will allow players to face those challenges head-on anywhere and everywhere!

By the way, if you’re wondering about the network test that was announced alongside the game: it will still take place, but the exact date is still to be announced.

Here’s some specs:

  • Resolution: 1080p in TV Mode, 720p in Handheld and Tabletop Mode
  • Framerate: 30fps
  • Online play: up to 6 players
  • Servers: dedicated servers
  • DLC: included

Finally, here’s some screenshots for the game (Nintendo Switch version):
