Bandai Namco shows off the new Amiibo for the Switch version of Dark Souls: Remastered along with announcing a free network test

Bandai Namco revealed new information about the upcoming release of Dark Souls: Remastered, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam on May 25.

Players who are eager to get their hands on the action game early will have a chance during the free network test across consoles. During the test, players can get familiar with the new online features and updated systems featured in Dark Souls: Remastered prior to the game’s official launch. The official time and dates of the network test will be announced soon.

Additionally, Nintendo Switch owners can purchase a Solaire of Astora Amiibo launching alongside Dark Souls: Remastered that can be used with the console hybrid and sold exclusively at GameStop retail stores in the United States. By tapping the Amiibo on the Joy-Con, the player’s character will perform the “Praise the Sun” gesture from the very beginning of the game to end at their will. It should be noted that the gesture can also be acquired through regular gameplay in all versions of the game. The Solaire of Astora Amiibo will launch for $15.99.

In case you missed it, Nintendo hosted a special direct where they showed Dark Souls: Remastered gameplay along with the Amiibo, which you can watch below as well as some Amiibo screenshots.:
