Dark Souls Remastered is getting its own Collectors Guide, published and edited by Future Press. If you’re unfamiliar, that’s okay. Anyways, Future Press develops outstanding, thoroughly crafted, highly detailed guides on hit video games ranging from Horizon: Zero Dawn, Portal 2, The Last Guardian, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and many more. They also worked on The Dark Souls, Dark Souls II, Bloodborne, and Bloodborne: The Old Hunters guides. I actually own the Dark Souls, Dark Souls II, and Bloodborne guide (missing The Old Hunters). They’re meaty and filled with excellent descriptions, artwork, guides, and more. I cannot recommend them enough.
Anyways, the announcement of a Dark Souls Remastered guide comes from EpicNameBro (commonly referred to ENB for short) through a tweet. ENB appears to have a hand in the development of this guide too.
Based off of previous releases, it is safe to say that the new Dark Souls Collectors Guide will be awesome.
