Dark Souls Remastered: First Gameplay on Nintendo Switch
Nintendo also released a video showing the first gameplay of the game on their platform, that we have previously seen is being developed by third party studio Virtuous. The brief images are overlaid by a Japanese voiceover announcement of the upcoming network test, and show the Chosen Undead in a showdown with the Gaping dragon, and slashing his way through the Undead Burg and facing a Black Knight and the Gargoyles.
The game does look gorgeous at its resolution of 1080p on the Switch, making us excited for the better overall graphics we can expect with the other more powerful Platforms
DKS Remaster Amiibo and Switch
Nintendo switch owners can rejoice in as the mighty Solaire of Astora will be joining the Amiibo gang. Scanning Solaire will allow players to perform the iconic “Praise The Sun emote” that is well know throughout the Dark Souls community. The Amiibo will cost USD 12 and be available on May 25 just like Dark Souls Remastered. Make sure to reserve your copy when they become available on the Nintendo Amiibo site or at a retailer near you.
