Nintendo wrapped up it's January 11th Direct with a huge announcement: Dark Souls Remastered is coming to Nintendo Switch.

Dark Souls is a worthy successor to the legacy left by Demon's Souls.

This remastered version will come packing the Artorias of the Abyss DLC in addition to improved framerate and resolution compared to the original Dark Souls.

Today's Nintendo Direct Mini ended with confirmation of recent rumours that Dark Souls would be making a series debut on the Switch this year. Apparently, the remaster will utilise SFX and lighting tech from Dark Souls III, so we would expect the remaster to have similar visuals.

Dark Souls Remastered will run at 1080p on the PS4 and Xbox One with 60 FPS.

Perhaps we'll even see the first wave of Virtual Console games, which are said to include Gamecube releases. But although the developer now has no plans to expand the trilogy, this doesn't mean that it isn't interested in giving its existing games a makeover.

After the game is announced for Switch, after few hours announcement for other platforms like PS4, Xbox One and PC will also be coming up.

FromSoftware and publisher Bandai Namco has yet to announce anything about a Dark Souls or Dark Souls 2 remaster.

After a day filled with long-standing rumors, teasing images and burning chibi-robos, the recently released mini-Nintendo Direct confirmed the existence of Dark Souls: Remastered.

2018 will also give Switch owners a chance to relive the 2008 Nintendo DS action/RPG The World Ends with You, which will be released in a new Final Remix edition.
