I'm sure one or two of you out there have forgotten about Dark Souls Remastered coming to the Switch, but for those who resisted the lure of its other versions you'll soon be getting your hands on it. October 19th 2018 is the date - pencil it in your diaries.

As FROMSOFTWARE announced on its Twitter (above), the lengthy wait will be over in only a couple of months. Dark Souls Remastered brings the brutally hard RPG to Nintendo Switch meaning you can fight bad guys, monsters, and bosses on the go.

The reason this version most appeals to me is that, thanks to the Switch's capabilities, you can pause, stop, and start up the game wherever you are in it and not lose a ton of progress. I know that's a cheater's way out, but I have no shame and I'm okay with it.

As a gamer I like to think I'm pretty patient... in everything but boss fights. I expect wrist straps and protective casing may be an essential before hopping into this one for any destroyers out there.

Personally, I'll never be able to play the game in public since, as I've mentioned before, I'm a gentle insulter in terms of game-related anger. At least I won't be tearing out any bus seats, I guess. Am I excited though? Hell yeah.

Praise the Sun.
