It's been nearly fourth months since the Nintendo Switch version of Dark Souls Remastered was originally delayed, and since then it's more or less been radio silence about the port, except for the occasional advertisement that reminded us of the game's absence. Bandai Namco announced today that the Switch version of the game will release on October 19, 2018. That's a bit of a miss for the summer window, but we're happy to see a new date regardless.
The Solaire of Astora amiibo announced in a Nintendo Direct earlier in the year will also be available on the same date. Using the amiibo will unlock the "Praise the Sun" Gesture early.
There will also be a network test similar to the ones held for the Playstation and Xbox versions of the game some point before launch. Finally, Bandai provided a simple table of some of the game-specific details.
Dark Souls Remastered originally launched on May 25.
