An article in Nintendo's official site has some answers to fan questions regarding possible changes to Dark Souls with the Dark Souls Remastered edition.
This is more than remastered. From what I heard, the game will use Dark Souls 3 Engine. So I would call it Dark Souls Remake. And I hope it is not going to be like Modern Warfare Remastered, because it completely ruined the original Modern Warfare.
Namco withdrew the DKS3 engine and "remake" comments, as well as the HDR lighting for PS4 Pro consoles. They are saying it isn't using any "new" assets from DKS3
Considering Switch is a potato, id be surprised if it manages a locked 30fps. Consoles will obviously do 60fps 1080p.
a potato at like 1/20th the size of an XB1 or PS4.
The switch is a portable/console hybrid Graphics don't mean whack when you have an amazing convinient console design.
Yeah sure the "it's portable" excuse. I've heard that shit a million times since it released. Next.
Frame rate on the switch remains unchanged - Nintendo
30fps is fine with me for some Dark Souls on the go :)
The original console versions of Dark Souls never ran at 30 fps. They were like 20 fps with frequent dips and frame pacing issues. So the Switch remaster is an improvement if it ends up running at a steady 30 fps.
If they'd only put a bonfire at the start of the New Londo Ruins....I hate the trek from Firelink Shrine everytime I die to those ghosts.
Why would the level design have been changed?
Because of Lost Izalith. Even From admits it was the worst level. Bed of Chaos was a terrible boss as well.
So long as they eliminate the crappy frame rate and backstab mechanics I'll be good to go.
