Dark Souls Remastered will release for Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC on May 25th. The box set will include all three Dark Souls games, each respective game's soundtrack, framed art, Dark Souls' themed bookends, and three dictionaries containing the entirety of Dark Souls' item list. Well, contrary to the Bioshock remasters, Dark Souls Remastered will be a separate product.

The Artorias of the Abyss DLC will also be included in the remastered version.

The fact that Dark Souls is considered a very popular franchise should come to no surprise to anyone. As the Switch has sold over 10 million units, meeting Nintendo's internal fiscal year estimates, it's only natural developers and publishers are seeing it as a major entry in the current console gen race. It won't have the visual fidelity of the other platforms, but it does offer the option to play Dark Souls on a handheld. Dark Souls joins Skyrim and Doom as more hardcore offerings on Nintendo's new system.

The Dark Souls trilogy boxset is now set to release in Japan on May 25, 2018 (which is the Dark Souls Remastered release date) and will cost 49,800 Yen (equivalent to $450). As of yet, we do not know how that will be split between cooperators and invaders.
