The original Dark Souls is coming to Nintendo Switch, Nintendo and publisher Bandai Namco announced today. The remaster of the Dark Souls will be released for Nintendo’s portable console on May 25. [Update: Dark Souls: Remastered is also coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One on the same date, Bandai Namco announced later.]

Dark Souls: Remastered includes the Artorias of the Abyss downloadable content, as well as improved framerate and resolution, Nintendo said in a release. Dark Souls: Remastered for Switch will mark the first time the franchise will appear on a Nintendo console (and the series’ first portable entry).

Watch the debut trailer for Dark Souls: Remastered on Switch below.

Dark Souls was first released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2011 to widespread acclaim. The game was later ported to Windows PC in 2012 as Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition. The most recent entry in the Dark Souls franchise, Dark Souls 3, came to consoles and PC in early 2016.
