The release date is now set to “later this summer,” alongside the upcoming Solaire of Astora Amiibo that will coincide with the release of the game.
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 console.”
Bandai Namco also stated that the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions’ release will be unaffected by the delay and will still release next month as originally planned, with the delay specifically affecting only the Switch version.
