The first Dark Souls game turns seven this year and we’re already getting a remastered edition. Today during a mini-Nintendo Direct, Nintendo revealed Dark Souls: Remastered coming to Nintendo Switch on May 25. It’s also headed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Dark Souls: Remastered will feature improved 60 FPS framerate and 4K resolution support when paired with the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, as well as on PC. It will feature 1080p and 30 FPS when docked on the Nintendo Switch. Dark Souls: Remastered represents the first time a Dark Souls game has appeared on a Nintendo console.

Nine online covenants will be hidden throughout the world to offer different online interactions. Up to six players can join up to both help or hinder each other in the world of Lordran. Dark Souls: Remastered will also include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC.

As a spiritual sequel to 2009’s  Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls instantly became a fan-favorite with its challenging but rewarding action-RPG gameplay. It’s considered one of the best games of the previous generation. Developer FromSoftware has since released two sequels, Dark Souls II (2014) and Dark Souls III (2016). Both were well received by fans and critics.

Dark Souls: Remastered will release on May 25 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch. It’s currently awaiting a rating from the ESRB, though all previous Souls games have been rated M for Mature for Blood and Violence.
