Along with the delay of Dark Souls for the Nintendo Switch, the network test for the Switch has also been moved back.
Bandai Namco confirmed that Switch owners will need to wait to get a taste for Dark Souls Remastered.
In a tweet, Bandai Namco stated:
“Unfortunately, the change of the Switch release date has affected its network test and it will be arranged separately from the test for PS4/XB1. Network test dates for the Switch will also be announced at the earliest possible opportunity.”
Dark Souls Remastered was originally meant to release on Nintendo Switch on May 25th, along with the other console versions. Bandai Namco pushed it back to a summer release.
On Nintendo Switch, Dark Souls Remastered runs at 1080p and 30FPS while docked. It also includes the Artorias of the Abyss DLC, along with various other improvements.
The PS4 and Xbox One network tests are still going ahead as planned. Those versions will be released on May 25th.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
