Dark Souls Remastered PS4 pre-order rumoured for May
Dark Souls – praise the sun if these rumours are true

The long-rumoured remaster of FromSoftware’s classic could be out in a matter of months, if the latest news from Japan is real.

If the Japanese pre-order notice below is real then it looks like Dark Souls is getting a remaster after all, but seemingly only on PlayStation 4.

The image below turned up via forum ResetEra and although it’s all in Japanese, and therefore difficult to expose as a fake just by looking at it, apparently the barcode is unique and doesn’t seem to relate to any known product.

That still doesn’t mean it’s real, but a remaster has been rumoured for a long time now. Although it’s most commonly been associated with the Nintendo Switch, since developer FromSoftware are listed as a developer for the system but still haven’t announced anything.

The Switch rumour always involved all three Dark Souls game as well, which seemed unlikely given the sheer volume of content that would involve – for both developer and player.

The title in the pre-order image is ambiguous though, and although it probably refers to just the first game the optimistic could still construe it as including the entire trilogy.

If the image is real then we’d expect an official announcement very soon, and for it also to be released on Xbox One in the West.

A Switch version should be more than possible on a technical level, but there’s nothing here to suggest it’s actually happening.
