A new report has surfaced on Kotaku this morning that claims Dark Souls Remastered will be announced later today for PS4.
Citing "multiple sources, both in development and retail", the report says the announcement is due to be made a few hours after the hotly anticipated Nintendo Direct. Apparently, the remaster will utilise SFX and lighting tech from Dark Souls III, so we would expect the remaster to have similar visuals. Kotaku has also learned that the multiplayer will broaden the maximum amount of concurrent players to six. Dark Souls Remastered will release in May 2018, the site claims.
We'd say it's probably best to treat this as a rumour until we hear official word. Having said that, the wording used in Kotaku's article seems pretty final.
Would you be excited to play the original Dark Souls on PS4? Praise the Sun in the comments below.
Update: Lending credence to the rumour is the image embedded right, which found its way onto the internet a little while ago.
Brilliant game, but I was expecting Demon's Souls what with the servers being turned off next month. Still excellent news though if true, those who missed it first time around will be very lucky. And expanding max players to 6 is a good plan, very entertaining when things get manic.
i don't really see why dark souls 1 needs a remaster, demon's souls would make more sense
Jaaaa ... the trilogy is cumplete. Jaaaaa ....
Hmm I would probably buy it. I have Dark Souls 3 in my backlog but never played 1 or 2.
Really hope this is true. Still my favourite in the series and only equaled by Bloodborne (and very closely followed by Demons Souls).
The original Dark Souls is my favorite of the Souls trilogy.
But, I'm done buying remasters.
Maybe a complete collection on PS5 someday.
... ker-ching... mooooo! no thanks, completed them all, Demon's Souls = yes for a remake, but DS? come onnnn... time to move on and start a new series.. or at least a new Bloodborne...
I don't think I can be bothered to play this again.
@Mega-Gazz : absolutely precious.
@YummyHappyPills Sony published/owns Demon's Souls.
EDIT: To clarify before you get all pedantic, Demon's Souls was co-developed by Japan Studio. Sony didn't publish it in the West so Atlus and Bamco picked it up, but Sony still owns the IP as far as I'm aware.
Would buy the second it is announced. Never completed it, got to before Seath the Scalesless and those tricksy narrow icy ledges.
I really didn't like this game the first few times I played it, but I know later on it my 100 or so hour playtime I started to really enjoy/appreciate it. I don't think I'd pickup a remaster though. Demon's Souls is still my favorite in the series (followed closely by Bloodborne)
Switch version too apparently...
Been hovering over the "Add to Cart" button on Steam for a long time waiting for a sale on this. Looks like I may be waiting a little longer...
Blighttown at 60fps!!
@The_Great_WmR Fingers crossed for added content. And, "Poise should act as intended."
@LieutenantFatman Think of it from Namco Bandai's point of view, Dark Souls is the more popular game with the more well known name, and it's also multiplatform. They can port it to PS4, Xbox One, and Switch in one move, 3 consoles it's never been on. And update the PC version at the same time. That's a lot of new money for very little effort.
A Demon's Souls remaster could only be on PS4 so would make a lot less money for them, and the title isn't as well known in the mainstream either. I still think it will happen but it's probably up to Sony to negotiate with BN. Maybe even to moneyhat. Although I admit if I was Sony I'd have been on top of that a long while ago.
