Dark Souls Remastered finally gets a Switch release date

Smough joke, it's really coming.

Lordrans and ladies, prepare to die all over again as Dark Souls Remastered will finally release for Nintendo Switch on October 19.

Originally slated to release in sync with the other platforms in May, the Switch version of Dark Souls was then delayed to a "Summer" release, followed by silence from Bandai Namco. The port has been available to demo at a number of events since, but Bandai Namco has remained shtum regarding a release date, until now at least.

From October 19th, Switch owners will finally be able to dive into the dark and dismal (if shinied up for the Remaster) world of Lordran, battling through classic environments like the Undead Burgh and Sen's Fortress to experience standout moments like dying over 50 times to Ornstein and Smough. Ahh, memories.

The Remastered version includes the excellent Artorias of the Abyss DLC, giving buyers the full Dark Souls experience.

Dark Souls Remastered releases on Nintendo Switch, October 19.
