Dark Souls Getting An amiibo And Network Test

Dark Souls Getting An amiibo And Network Test

Moreover, Nintendo confirmed that Dark Souls Remastered will offer a network test ahead of launch. Originally released back in 2011, the title will arrive on Switch with a number of improvements, including Amiibo support! You guessed it - it literally makes your character perform the pose for no rhyme or reason, just for giggles.

The Solaire of Astora will allow you to endlessly praise the sun.

The original Dark Souls was an incredible game, to such a level that it pretty much had a cult following, considering that the Remastered version of the game is probably going to be equally successful.

The Network Test will be scheduled to test gameplay and online features.

Dark Souls Remastered will be available for Switch on May 25, 2018 and it will cost $59.95 AUD.

Meanwhile, for Nintendo Switch owners, there's a new Amiibo that you'll be able to add to your collection.

We'll let you know more details on the free network test as soon as they become available - but early May is looking like a proper time period to kick it off.

When the game launches, Nintendo Switch fans can harness the power of the sun with the Solaire of Astora amiibo figure, available exclusively at participating GameStop locations in the United States.
