After the announcement of the Dark Souls Remastered edition, the news is swarming in each day. We already know that the remaster of our favorite nerve-breaking game will feature HDR, 60 frames per second and a 4K resolution, what we didn’t know though is the fact that From Software is not entirely working on Dark Souls Remastered. There’s a Polish company called QLOC working on the game’s PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC editions.
According to Laura Kate Dale, news editor at Kotaku, QLOC is currently working on bringing the remaster to our consoles and PC along with From Software. She stated on Twitter:
The PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of Dark Souls Remaster are, to some major degree, being worked on by QLOC. FromSoft may be doing some work, but certainly not all of it.
QLOC has previously worked with Bandai Namco on many titles, including the Souls series so this scenario wouldn’t be far from the truth. The company was founded in 2009 and began by offering its quality assurance and localization services to international clients. In early 2011, QLOC added porting services to the company’s portfolio. The combination of these three premium industry services: porting, localization, and QA – a one-stop solution to all the clients’ needs – gave QLOC a unique position in the industry and has been the reason behind the company’s fast growth and development.
What’s interesting though is that QLOC is working on porting games and, right now, they are working on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions of the game. Does this mean that the original version of Dark Souls Remastered is the one we’ll see on the Nintendo Switch? We can only wonder.
In related news, a report has made its way on the internet suggesting that following the remaster, Dark Souls 2 and Dark Souls 3 will also be releasing for Nintendo Switch. Do you think this could be true?
