Bandai Namco Entertainment has confirmed that an amiibo figure based on Solaire of Astora will also be released on the same day as Dark Souls: Remastered. By tapping this amiibo, the popular “Praise the Sun” gesture can be used with reckless abandon from the start of the game (gesture can also be obtained through regular gameplay). Both the amiibo and Dark Souls: Remastered, the remake of the genre-defining and beloved original Dark Souls game, will be launched on the 25th of May.
Players will be able to participate in a “network test” on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This free network test will allow them to download and play a part of Dark Souls: Remastered before the launch to try out the gameplay and unique online features. More details about the network test will be revealed soon.
I’d imagine a lot of fans are excited to see the implication of an amiibo coming to the Dark Souls franchise. And the fact that a “network test” is coming, which allows gamers an early crack at the game, everything looking up for all you cursed undead out there.
Dark Souls: Remastered will be available on 25th of May 2018 for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The special amiibo will also be available on the Bandai Namco Entertainment official store on the 25th of May.
