Nintendo got to show off Dark Souls: Remastered first for a reason

Earlier today Nintendo hosted a Nintendo Direct Mini. The Switch is getting new titles in the guise of Mario Tennis Aces, set for a spring launch, Kirby Star Allies, which will land 16 March, and brawler SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy, slated for the summer. A definitive version of the Dynasty Warriors-like horde brawler Hyrule Warriors, which includes all the content from the old Wii U and 3DS versions of the game plus character skins from Breath of the Wild, will come to the console sometime in Spring 2018.

Celeste comes from the developer of Towerfall, and is an indie action platformer coming to Switch on January 25.

Despite the listing only coming up for PS4, it stands to reason that the Dark Souls Remastered edition could also come to Xbox One - after all, Dark Souls released on the 360.

And if Switch owners keep buying games at a steady rate, you can expect that Bandai Namco and other companies will return with something new. There isn't too much information at this time, beyond the usual release date, which is May 25th, and marketing spiel, but the below image has found its way onto Discord.

Cooperative heist shooter Payday 2 is coming to Nintendo Switch, adding HD rumble and touchscreen controls.

Indie platformer Celeste features pixelated graphics and an assist mode that lets you tweak the difficultly level.

In case you haven't heard, Dark Souls is making its way to current-generation platforms in a new version of the game aptly titled Dark Souls: Remastered. And a demo of the Minecraft-meets-Dragon Quest game Dragon Quest Builders is now out for Switch owners to take for a whirl.

Nintendo closed the Direct Mini with a major new announcements: Dark Souls: Remastered will bring the challenging 2011 action-RPG to Nintendo Switch with updated graphics. Playing the game on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X will allow players to enjoy the game at upscaled 4K resolution.
