Dark Souls Remastered announced for Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC - and it's out in May

Praise the sun, your prayers have been answered - a Remaster of Dark Souls is coming, and yes, it's coming to Nintendo Switch.

It's been some seven years since Dark Souls first arrived and a few years longer since we first got our hands on the excellent, game-changing Demon's Souls - but now it's time to return to almost the beginning of this series with a fully-fledged remaster of Dark Souls, as announced by Nintendo during a surprise Nintendo Direct event held today.

The game was announced with a trailer and given a release date of May 25, though little else has been announced about it thus far - so we don't know exactly how deep a remaster it's going to be or how much it'll change, though I expect we'll learn that soon. Here's what the press release says on that matter: 

"Experience the rich world of DARK SOULS in upscaled 4K resolution with 60FPS when playing on a PlayStation 4 Pro system, Xbox One X, and PC. Also, 1080p resolution with 30FPS is available when playing the game on Nintendo Switch with its TV mode."

See the trailer for yourself below:

Roll on May 25. No screenshots or actual gameplay video yet, but here's the first assets from the game - lovely box art and key artwork for the new release.
