Nintendo Direct: Dark Souls, Donkey Kong, Mario Tennis coming to Switch

Nintendo Direct: Dark Souls, Donkey Kong, Mario Tennis coming to Switch

Dark Souls: Remastered represents the first time a Dark Souls game has appeared on a Nintendo console.

In addition to visual improvements and the obvious performance upgrades, From Software has also bumped up support to include up to six players for multiplayer mode as well. Lastly, Super Mario Odyssey will be getting a free update which adds a new competitive Balloon Hunt mode, new cosmetic items and a handful of extra photo filters. It will feature 1080p and 30 FPS when docked on the Nintendo Switch.

On the first-party side, Nintendo announced Kirby Star Allies will arrive for the Switch on March 16th, while the new title Mario Tennis Aces is slated for release sometime in the Spring. Scheduled to release on the same day, May 25, the remaster will be enhanced for PS4 Pro, and Xbox One X.

PRAISE THE SUN! A remastered version of Dark Souls is coming to the Nintendo Switch to test your mettle and hollow out your gaming hours.

RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita 'can join Liverpool this month for £13million'
The Reds agreed last August a deal in excess of £50m that would see Keita spend another season in the Bundesliga before moving to Anfield in the summer.

Additionally, players can unlock a "B-side" to each of the game's chapters, bring in new challenges and new ways to overcome each challenge. The refresh will also be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. These ports will be handled by other companies than that of the Switch port. It will be available exclusively on Nintendo Switch. 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.

After rumors swirled for days about a possible Nintendo Direct on Thursday, including a GameStop Twitter faux pas, Nintendo finally revealed a Direct Mini presentation with no warning Thursday morning.

Though it's unclear just how Dark Souls: Remastered will perform undocked, my bet is that the Switch will run it at a standard 720p 30 fps (which isn't bad). The one that stands out for me is "dedicated game servers", what a great move by FromSoft and Bandai Namco.
