Dark Souls Remastered released on most consoles back in May, giving players a chance to relive (or finally experience) the game that inspired countless imitators. The Nintendo Switch version will finally arrive this Friday. It’s an impressive technical achievement that, while not as robust as other versions, is still worth exploring.


Maybe you thought the original Dark Souls was too hard. Maybe you thought it was too dreary. Maybe it looked boring. For whatever reason, plenty of people missed playing it the first time around. Dark Souls Remastered is out and it's a great excuse to check out the series for the first time or to give it a second chance. Here are some things you should know before you play.


When Dark Souls released in 2011, it helped solidify a new genre of action RPG. Since then, players have held onto the game, with fight clubs and massive, yearly revisitations. Dark Souls is more ritual than game at this point, and it was only inevitable that we'd get a remaster. I think I'm ok with that.


Dark Souls: Remastered was due out on all major platforms in just over a month, on May 25 to be precise. It'll still come out that day for consoles and the PC, but Switch owners will have to wait until later this year.
