Bandai Namco has announced a new, confirmed release date for Dark Souls: Remastered on Switch. You'll finally be able to get your hands on this portable remaster on 19th October.

Back in April, Bandai Namco revealed that the game had been delayed until the summer. With the summer months almost behind us, however, fans were no doubt starting to be ever so slightly concerned about the game's whereabouts. Luckily, despite missing that initial estimate, the game is well and truly on the way.

In case you were wondering - which we're sure you were - the amiibo figure based on Solaire of Astora will also be released on the same day. The figure will allow the true Warrior of the Sunlight to prove their faith by using the 'Praise the Sun' gesture from the beginning of the adventure. If you didn't want to nab the figure, you can also obtain this gesture through normal gameplay.


Extra details have also been confirmed for the title, including how it will run on Switch. Dark Souls: Remastered will run at 1080p while docked, and 720p in handheld mode, with a frame rate of 30fps. Available DLC is included with the game, and the online system will have a "specific game server" with support for up to six players available.
