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

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".

Either way, Dark Souls Remastered will still be launching on PS4 and Xbox One on May 25.

The infamously hard RPG classic is getting a long-awaited revival with the upcoming Dark Souls Remastered, and while PS4, Xbox One, and PC players will get to re-experience its trials next month, Nintendo Switch owners unfortunately will have to wait a little bit longer.

Fans of Dark Souls have been given some big news this week.

Switch owners wanting to experience From Software's classic on a Nintendo console are going to have to wait a little longer...

"We will test the server performance of the Switch version apart from the others, and at a time closer to the Switch release". Both the game and the amiibo are set to arrive this summer, but no specific date was given. The release date for the Nintendo Switch™ version has now been pushed back to this summer.

No reason for the delay has been given but presumably it's proving harder than expected to get the game running on Nintendo's modestly-powered console.

In a followup tweet, the publisher added, "Rest assured, this time will ultimately be used to improve your journey to Lordran". There will also be a six-player online experience involved with the game. Gamers can view additional information for the Nintendo Switch version here, and pre-orders are still available.

Even without the launch of Dark Souls: Remastered, May should still be a pretty big month for Nintendo Switch.
