Role model games
Yesterday, Electronic Arts kicked-off its E3 2019 celebrations with its 'EA Play' event and the gameplay reveal of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. While it's already been confirmed the title won't be coming to Nintendo's hybrid system, there's still an interesting link this game has with one of the Japanese company's famous series...
Make sure to update
Dark Souls: Remastered has just received an update on Nintendo Switch, fixing crashes and other issues to improve the game's overall performance. Not an awful lot has been said about the game since it launched on Switch last month, but that doesn't mean that developer FromSoftware hasn't been quietly working away on improvements...
"We will have some exciting high-profile Switch games coming out soon"
Dark Souls: Remastered may have taken its sweet time in getting to the Switch, but the port was more than worth the wait. Lordran looks just as grim and foreboding on Nintendo's handheld as it does on other platforms, and the fact that you can now play the game on the move is a...
But does have an improved resolution and frame rate
Last Friday finally saw the release of Dark Souls: Remastered on Nintendo Switch, arriving on the system after a somewhat lengthy delay which had many fans worried about its eventual quality. Of course, now we've had the chance to play it, it's clear to see that the wait was more than worth it, but...
Are you getting a copy?
As you've probably already figured out from this article's title, Dark Souls: Remastered launches on Nintendo Switch today. To celebrate, Nintendo has released a brand new launch trailer to drum up the hype and get you in the mood for multiple, grizzly deaths. Yes, it's finally time for Switch owners to embark on their...
Git gud on the go
The Nintendo Switch has played host to countless ports in the relatively brief 18 months it’s been on the market, but every so often one comes along that brings with it all the prestige and reverence that made it such a touchstone elsewhere. Last year, that game was arguably The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, a port that was made all...
You did the opposite of 'lived'
Nintendo has shared a brand new trailer for the upcoming Dark Souls: Remastered, perfectly capturing the feelings of almost everyone who has ever played the game. Yes, that famous "You Died" screen is about to burn itself into the retinas of a whole new wave of fans, as Dark Souls arrives on a Nintendo platform for...
Jot down these times!
Just in case you've missed it, or in case you'd forgotten, the Dark Souls: Remastered network test is starting today, giving players the chance to have an early look at the game. For players in Europe, we are a mere matter of minutes away from the test at the time of writing; those in the US have a few more hours to prepare...
Give it a whirl
The Dark Souls: Remastered network test has now been officially rescheduled for 21st September - 23rd September on Nintendo Switch. If you want to have an early look at the game, and help the development team by sending them crucial information on the game's performance, then this is a perfect opportunity for you to get involved...
"No word" on Dark Souls III
It's time to put our rumour hats on once again, folks, as reports suggest that a Dark Souls II port could well be in the works for Nintendo Switch. Dark Souls news has been flying around left, right, and centre over the last few days, with the Switch version of Dark Souls: Remastered getting a confirmed release...
Six minutes of footage
After a pretty scary delay, Dark Souls: Remastered finally received a new release date last week, with Bandai Namco confirming that Switch owners will get their chance to own the game on 19th October. With that date now safely pinned down, it's time to start getting excited for its release once again, and maybe even take a...
Say it isn't so
A while ago we heard the news that Dark Souls: Remastered - along with that lovely Solaire amiibo - would be delayed on Switch. The game has now been and gone on other platforms and we're still yet to hear anything about the Nintendo version, but retailer Amazon has now taken things to a whole new level. As this tweet below shows -...
"You remain among the accursed"
We won't lie, Dark Souls: Remastered getting delayed on Switch really ruined our plans for May. However, Bandai Namco said at the time that the proposed network test would proceed despite the delay - although it looks like even that is being pushed back. The network test for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game...
"Forgive me… I am impure"
Bandai Namco has revealed that Dark Souls: Remastered on Switch has been delayed until the summer, along with the special Solaire amiibo. The May 25th release date still applies to the other versions, however. It would seem that whatever issue has occurred, it only impacts the Switch edition. With no solid release date...
French publisher Third Editions does a fantastic line in deep and engaging video game books, and has previously released titles focusing on the likes of Zelda, Dark Souls and Metal Gear Solid. The company is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to translate more of its books into English, and has kindly prov
Fill your plate
It's almost time for the Nintendo Switch to visit Lordran, a Gothic kingdom filled with dangers and creatures in all manner of monstrous forms. It's a place where you'll almost certainly die, over and over again. Okay, that might not sound like an attractive premise for a video game, but its war of attrition makes for one of the most...
If you are looking forward to the release of Dark Souls: Remastered on Switch on 25 May, you'll probably want to pick up the lovely Solaire amiibo, which was announced in the most recent Nintendo Direct. Because, why wouldn't you? Solaire of Astora is a 'Warrior of Sunlight' who appears throughout the original Dark Souls...
Network test coming ahead of May launch
During today's Nintendo Direct it was confirmed that Dark Souls: Remastered will be getting its own amiibo. Solaire of Astora - one of the most popular characters from the entire Souls series - will be immortalised in plastic form, complete in his iconic "Praise the Sun" pose. Using the amiibo in-game will...
Zelda: BOTW book included
If you're a fan of video game books then chances are you'll already be familiar with the name Third Editions. This French publisher has produced some incredible books in the past and recently translated some of them into English - including an excellent analysis of the Zelda series. The company is now seeking
Prepare to vie (for attention)
A short time ago, shiny new Nintendo Life Editor (TM) Dom wrote an excellent piece about Dark Souls coming to Switch, and why it's such a spiffing idea. His decision to pen this piece was also a spiffing idea; so much so in fact that we decided Dom and our resident video guru Alex should have a wee natter about the...
Preparing to die on Switch will be a watershed moment
Soapbox features enable our individual writers to voice their own opinions on a wide range of topics, opinions that may not necessarily be the voice of the site. In this edition, editor Dom explores the viscous and empowering minutia of the Dark Souls phenomenon and how it's a match made in...
Entire trilogy will come to Switch eventually, sources claim
Still not hyped enough about this elusive Nintendo Direct? Well here's another rumour to keep you ticking over - Kotaku is reporting that Dark Souls Remastered will be announced today for Switch in a "mini" Direct broadcast. We've heard Dark Souls rumours in the past so this might be on...
"Unfit even to be cinders"
There's nothing like a good mistake to set chins wagging, and that's exactly what happened when GameSpot posted footage for the next helping of Dark Souls 3 DLC - and listed it as "Captured on Switch" in the video's opening segment. The footage was quickly seized upon by optimistic fans, who pointed out that not only has...
A different beat
From Software's Dark Souls is one of gaming's most rewarding - and brutal - experiences. For many, the game - as well as its forerunner Demon's Souls and sequel Dark Souls II - is hard-as-nails when played normally, but there's a small subset of completely insane players who feel it isn't quite punishing enough. Twitch and YouTube...
