Dark Souls: Remastered Switch Version Delayed to Ambiguous 'Summer' Release Date

This certainly isn't something to praise the sun about. 


Well, this is disappointing. After getting players around the world hyped for a Nintendo Switch release of Dark Souls: Remastered, it looks like Bandai Namco has announced a delay for the hotly-anticipated port, but only for the Nintendo Switch version. While the game was on track to land on all platforms (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch) on May 25, 2018 before, now the Switch version has been pushed back to a more vague release date of simply "summer." That's about all we know so far. 

As far as why the delay happened, we don't know about that either, as the official Dark Souls Twitter account puts it all down to the "nature of causality." Unfortunately, pushing back the Switch release also means that we won't get the Solaire of Astora amiibo on time, either. It's really a bummer all around, because that's probably the reason many players were actually looking forward to the Switch version in particular. I mean, it's pretty awesome.

Hopefully a new date is on the horizon, so we don't have to wonder when "summer" actually is. If the weather near you is anything like it's been for yours truly, apparently it's still winter. Here's hoping we hear something soon!
