Dark Souls Remastered will feature 2K unconverted textures on the PC

The world of Lordran is set to be realized in upscaled 4K resolution for players journeying through the game on the PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One X, and PC. Now, in a recent Nintendo Direct Mini, the remastered version of the original Dark Souls was officially announced with the technical details. REMASTERED marks the DARK SOULS series debut on a Nintendo platform, and for the first time ever can be played on the go with the unique capabilities of the Nintendo Switch console.

Nintendo Direct confirmed the rumor that the original Dark Souls was being remastered. Dark Souls is one of the most beloved franchises of the last 10 years. And lastly, for the PC it will support resolutions up to native 4K. For the Nintendo Switch, the game will be available in 1080p with 30 fps in TV mode. From their first timid steps to absolute mastery, players build characters by strategically adapting to daunting foes, exploring haunting locations, and amassing a large collection of weapons, armour and magic spells. VaatiVidya, who is known for creating SoulsBorne lore videos, took it to Twitter and claimed that the remastered version would use Dark Souls III engine assets, HDR lightning, and a few other enhancements for PS4 Pro version. That doesn't mean a change in game engine is out of the question, but this will look pretty similar to the version of Dark Souls we already know. It was ported to PC in 2012.

One of our sources indicates that Bandai Namco plans to bring all three Dark Souls games to Switch eventually, but the oft-rumoured "trilogy" bundle is not how this will be happening - yet.
