Dark Souls: Remastered finally has a date for its Nintendo Switch arrival

If you had planned to play the game while trick-or-treating, well... you can!

Back in May of this year, Dark Souls: Remastered arrived on PlayStation 4 and Xbox. That was pretty cool. Unfortunately, the Nintendo Switch version met a slight delay, and we were promised only that it would arrive in the summer.

The passage of time has determined that was a lie.

Today, Bandai Namco issued a press release offering a firmer release date for the eagerly anticipated port. Dark Souls: Remastered is now slated to arrive on Nintendo Switch on October 19, 2018, alongside the Solaire of Astroa amiibo.

"With the unique portable capabilities of the Nintendo Switch," notes the press release, "players will be able to experience Dark Souls' groundbreaking action-RPG gameplay that has inspired millions of players around the world anywhere at any time."

Ahead of the game's actual release, Bandai Namco plans to conduct a Network Test. There's no word yet on when that event will actually occur, but the publisher has promised more information soon.

The original version of Dark Souls has proven quite popular here at HonestGamers, and I'm personally delighted that a definitive version is about to arrive on the Nintendo Switch. Are you prepared to die on the go?
