The infamously difficult RPG classic is getting a long-awaited revival with the upcoming Dark Souls Remastered, and while PS4, Xbox One, and PC players will get to re-experience its trials next month, Nintendo Switch owners unfortunately will have to wait a little bit longer.

Publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment has announced today that the Nintendo Switch version of Dark Souls Remastered has been delayed from its originally-intended release of May 25th, 2018 to “later this summer,” alongside the upcoming Solaire of Astora amiibo that will coincide with its release.

Regarding the delay, Bandai Namco stated that “the new release timing gives the development team the time needed to make sure Nintendo Switch players can fully appreciate the true DARK SOULS experience anytime and anywhere, thanks to the unique portable nature of the Nintendo Switch console.”

Bandai Namco also stated that the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions’ release will be unaffected by the delay and will still release next month as planned, with the delay specifically for the Switch version.

Dark Souls Remastered will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 25th, 2018, while the Nintendo Switch version will release sometime later this summer. There’s still time to pre-order the game ahead of its release, which you can pick up from Amazon.
