At last, Dark Souls Remastered has a Nintendo Switch release date

For the Gwyn!

Dark Souls Remastered launches for Nintendo Switch on 19th October, publisher Bandai Namco has announced.

The Solaire of Astora amiibo comes out alongside the game on the same date.

It's been a bit of a wait - we were expecting the Switch version alongside the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One editions back in May, until it was pushed back to "summer". October isn't really summer anywhere, but at least now we know for certain when it'll arrive.

Performance-wise, Digital Foundry has already appraised Dark Souls Remastered on all available consoles and PC. It'll be interesting to see how the Switch version stacks up.
