Bandai Namco Entertainment today 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. Both the amiibo and Dark Souls: Remastered will be launched on 25th of May, 2018.
Another good news for players, they 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.
