Nintendo Direct Mini Apparently Coming Today With Dark Souls Remastered Announcement

According to Kotaku, "several" sources have all confirmed that the first Dark Souls game will be making its way onto the Nintendo Switch, as well as Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and the big reveal will be happening today. But this new Trilogy box set really is something else.

On Switch, it will run at a resolution of resolution 1080p at 30fps in TV mode. Some games try to scare you with bump-in-the-night shocks and far-off howls, but Dark Souls doesn't require such predictable methods of terror.

We've confimed this means an upscaled 4K resolution and it will run at 60 fps.

REMASTERED allows players to explore the twisted ancient land of Lordran in the first title of the critically acclaimed action role-playing series like never before. In the original Dark Souls game, gamers could play online with 1 to 4 players but with the remastered version, gamers can play online with 1 to 6 other players.

If you live in Japan, the set will include all three Dark Souls games, all DLC, the soundtracks for every game, bookends, 10 art prints and a frame, and three physical encyclopedias with the descriptions of every item in the series. The Switch's GPU is created to give games a much brighter and more vibrant look compared to the PS4 and Xbox One counterparts, so it will be interesting to see how a game as dark as Dark Souls looks on the Switch when it arrives on May 25th. Dark Souls theorist VaatiVidya had claimed that this new port would be using engine assets from Dark Souls 3 and would contain HDR lighting and some PS4 Pro enhancements.

The fact that Dark Souls is considered as a very popular brand should not surprise anyone.
