    I don’t know where I red this but I think the remaster of dark souls had nothing to do with From. It’s basically a easy cash grab from the publisher Bandai Namco.

    But hey, i might be wrong and From is in this aswell, which would be so disappointing.

    Edit : I found this, Miazaki speaking in a interview. Source.

    “However, there was a misunderstanding in an overseas interview, but this doesn’t deny a remaster. I don’t think we from FROM SOFTWARE will develop it, but DARK SOULS is a Bandai Namco IP, like Demon’s Souls and Bloodborne are Sony IPs. So remasters are decided by those companies, and remakes and such can also be done in the future.”

    That doesn’t really mean that they were not involved but when you know that they didn’t developed the remaster, I think it says a lot!

    I just tried it - wouldn’t connect to the server and couldn’t do anything but launch the title screen. Just kept telling me I cannot play in offline mode.

    I have my Switch Online membership and connection is active.

    Didn’t work for me - where are the set play times listed?

    The message I get is “failed to retrieve latest calibrations”

    Edit:
    Ah - in the eShop...

    “September 21 at 19h (7pm), ends at 23h (11pm). Again the 22 and 23.”

    I'll pass since it requires the Paid Membership, which I can't purchase due to my Bank Account not supporting online transactions.

    You have the 7 days trials if you want, do you need you credit card for that ?

    Not really sure, I don't plan to get a credit card currently. I'm sure it might require you to give a credit card, so that they can charge you after the trial ends.

    That’s what I thought too. It’s not really worth it anyway!

    Hope this doesn't become the standard for online test demos, although I can easily see that being the case...

    Does this game runs at 60fps on switch? If yes, this game will be the only reason for me to get a switch (beside metroid prime 4...i hope metroid will run 60fps)...

    Metroid Prime 4?
    Wasn't that just a bluff?
    Is it really in development?

    are they really doing their hourly tests again ? Oh Nintendo. Everybody else does it 3 days straight and Nintendo does it only a couple of hours like with Splatoon. How backwards can they be
