The action RPG has now had its versions on PC, PS4, and Xbox running for over five months and still, we have not been able to play the Nintendo Switch version of Dark Souls Remastered. However, the Switch version is having a network test of three days as confirmed by the developers and publishers of Dark Souls Remastered.
The network test is supposed to start from Friday as told by developers FromSoftware and publishers Bandai Namco. A schedule has been provided for those who wish to participate in the event just to get rid of any confusion regarding the dates or days for the Dark Souls Remastered Switch test. The timings of different locations and regions have been clearly mentioned for the Nintendo Switch network test set which is planned from 21 September to 23 September:
- September 21 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. PT
- September 22 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. PT
- September 23 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. PT
- September 21 from 19:00 to 23:00 CEST
- September 22 from 19:00 to 23:00 CEST
- September 23 from 19:00 to 23:00 CEST
- September 21 from 18:00 to 22:00 JST
- September 22 from 18:00 to 22:00 JST
- September 23 from 18:00 to 22:00 JST
The download of the game is available from the Nintendo eShop for players who want to access the Dark Souls Remastered Switch version on network test. These players would then be permitted to access both single-player as well as Multiplayer content of the game.
The release date for the full version of Dark Souls Remastered on Nintendo Switch was announced to be 19th October. As we have previously heard the Switch version of the action game has been rather optimized to adapt better to the Nintendo console platform.
However, to this point or when the Switch version roles out next month many gamers would have already played and reviewed the remastered game as it has been available to the players of other platforms for months now.
We are now at a point where the Dark Souls Remastered has seen hackers infiltrate the programming of the game. At one point reports even suggested that users should be cautioned from a well-known Antivirus which was capable of corrupting the saves of the game.
As of now players can only hope for the good when they try out the network test set for Dark Souls Remastered Switch version. Developers would certainly have to bear in mind that running a few months late on the Nintendo release would require them to free the game of errors that is has faced after the launch on other platforms beforehand as well.
