Dark Souls Solaire Amiibo Confirmed For Nintendo Switch Release
Today’s new Nintendo Direct has been full of surprises, with a significant amount of the games being new Nintendo Switch versions of games that first released on other gaming platforms in the past. Some of these re-releases made their official announcement during the Nintendo Direct, such as South Park: The Fractured But Whole, as well as other re-releases already confirmed for the Switch, including Dark Souls: Remastered. The remaster surprised no one by appearing in today’s Direct, but a nice additional announcement delighted many. It appears that a Dark Souls Solaire Amiibo will be released alongside the Nintendo Switch version of the game that unlocks a fun feature in the game.
The new Dark Souls Solaire Amiibo was announced on the Nintendo Direct video seen above from the official Nintendo YouTube channel. The fan-favorite ally to players in the original Dark Souls marks the first character from the series to be turned into an Amiibo figure, shown in his infamous “Praise the Sun” pose. The figure extends the sun-praising into the game, as the figure allows the player to unlock the “Praise the Son” emote from the beginning of the game when tapping the figure onto the device.
The Solaire Amiibo will launch on May 25th, alongside the Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions of Dark Souls: Remastered. A network test for the game will be available to Switch owners before the game’s launch, with futher details to be revealed soon. These announcements will definitely have Dark Souls fans lifting their hands up to the sky in reverence of FromSoftware. What do you guys think about the new Dark Souls Solaire Amiibo?
