With Dark Souls Remastered you should know exactly what you are getting; a full fat port of a revered and classic game with all of the extra bells and whistles the little console can afford. You may have already picked this remaster up on another platform, and if you have then you may want to side step this release. But if you missed it, or if taking Lordran with you in your bag is too appealing to turn down, then follow the flame and praise the sun.
Dark Souls on Switch takes everything great about the game and repackages it on a handheld device with some tiny performance-related caveats. The world design is second to none, and the game’s intertwining stories come together in a way that From Software—and its imitators—have failed to match. I continue to experience and find new things hidden away in Lordran’s darkest corners, and the Switch version lets me do that on the bus.
At the end of the day, you just have to ask yourself being able to kick back in your recliner and play one of the most frustrating games ever created on a convenient pocket-sized console is something you want to do. To me, it’s the perfect afternoon. The Switch version may not have all the pretty bells and whistles that you find on its big brother consoles or the PC but it fulfills a sense of nostalgia for the original that the others didn’t.
