Virtuos Handling ‘Dark Souls Remastered’ On Nintendo Switch

After no word on who is working on Dark Souls Remastered for Nintendo Switch, it’s been revealed that Virtuos is handling the project. This comes to us via Australian Classification.

If you recognize the name, it’s probably not just a coincidence. Virtuos worked on Rockstar Games’ L.A. Noire on Switch, which released last year. Interestingly, Nintendo is actually publishing Dark Souls Remastered themselves in Australia, which is unexpected.

Re-experience the critically acclaimed, genre-defining game that started it all. Beautifully remastered, return to Lordran in stunning detail. DARK SOULS: REMASTERED includes the main game plus the Artorias of the Abyss DLC.
