DARK SOULS: REMASTERED NETWORK TEST AND SOLAIRE OF ASTORA amiibo ANNOUNCED

Dark Souls fans got a bit of a treat during the new Nintendo Direct today as not only was a network test announced for Switch, but one of the most recognizable characters from the series will be getting his very own amiibo.

Bandai Namco invites players back to the treacherous land of Lordran with Dark Souls: Remastered, and re-experience the genre-defining title that kicked off a worldwide gaming phenomena in stunning high-definition detail.

Unlike amiibo in other games, which tend to do helpful things like give players items or refill their health, all the Solaire of Astora amiibo seems to do is let players perform the "Praise the sun!" gesture.


Dark Souls: Remastered will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on May 25. Solaire has become a meme of sorts, mainly thanks to his saying "Praise the sun!"

Hidden in the world of Dark Souls: Remastered are nine online covenants to uncover that will motivate your online interactions. More information about the Network Test will be announced soon.

For one the game will have a Network test ahead of launch. Yes, the Solaire of Astora figure will be making its debut alongside the Nintendo Switch version of the game, going for $15.99.
