To call a difficult or punishing melee combat game Dark Souls-like is something that we've grown accustomed to of late, as is the general idea that Dark Souls is a genre unto itself. Out on May 25, Dark Souls Remastered brings the original back with new spruced up 60fps visuals for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
And for those who haven't played the original it's a great way to find out what all the fuss is about. As per our review of the original 2011 release of Dark Souls,
"DS is not for the casual gamer, since success and gratification do not come easy. It’s certainly one of the most difficult games I have ever played, but it’s clear that every single element of it has been designed meticulously to reward the cautious and clever participant. Each player will develop their own set of strategies and mechanisms to help them power through; digging deep to find the persistence and drive to make every hit count. It’s not for everyone, but if you’re looking for the gaming challenge of your life, Dark Souls is a very good place to start."
Originally announced for Nintendo Switch, that version has been delayed until sometime this winter.
