Digital Foundry has a very look at Dark Souls: Remastered on Switch based on the brief snippets of footage shown during last week’s Nintendo Direct. The game is still a couple of months out and changes could be made, but the analysis is rather interesting.

Digital Foundry reconfirms what Bandai Namco and FromSoftware have said previously. Dark Souls: Remastered will indeed run at 1080p docked (and 720p in portable mode). On the whole it’s a 2.8x increase over the last-gen versions of the game.

Does the name Virtuos ring a bell? If you paid attention to last year’s release of L.A. Noire on Switch, it may sound familiar. Rockstar worked with Virtuos to bring that title to Nintendo’s console.

The same company looks to be behind the release of another notable Switch re-release. Dark Souls: Remastered has been rated in Australia, showing that Virtuos is working on FromSoftware’s classic for Nintendo’s console. Polish studio QLOC has been rumored to be handling the title for other platforms.

Nintendo has worked with a few third-parties in the past to distribute their games at retail in Europe. Previous examples of this on Switch include Doom, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and the German title Schlag den Star.

Next up will be Dark Souls: Remastered. At retail, Nintendo will behind the game’s distribution on Switch. We don’t have the specifics on the deal, but the game will at least have pricing parity with other platforms at €39.99.
