Dark Souls Remastered Confirmed For Nintendo Switch

Dark Souls Remastered Confirmed For Nintendo Switch

Nintendo DS action-rhythm-RPG The World Ends with You: Final Remix is coming to Nintendo Switch later this year.

Nintendo held an early morning Nintendo Direct Mini, and we've got the whole thing for you to watch right here.

Players shown so far for Aces include Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi, and Nintendo revealed that Aces will also include a story mode for the first time in the franchise since Mario Tennis Power Tour on Game Boy Advance. This is essentially an ultimate edition of the game, as it comes with all previous DLC and all of the content featured in both the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game. The paid Battle Pack DLC for Pokkén Tournament DX will be split in half, the first arriving on January 31st and the second on March 23rd, with each introducing a new battle Pokémon (Aegislash and Blastoise, respectively) and supports. I am concerned about the Switch release, as I can imagine many a broken console for newcomers.

The box set is slated to release the same day as Dark Souls: Remastered on May 24, 2018. One bit of new information to come from this is that the Remaster will run on the Dark Souls 3 engine. SNK HEROINES ~Tag Team Frenzy~ will let you fight with SNK's iconic heroines in two-on-two tag team matches.

Cooperative heist shooter Payday 2 is coming to Nintendo Switch, adding HD rumble and touchscreen controls. And a demo of the Minecraft-meets-Dragon Quest game Dragon Quest Builders is now out for Switch owners to take for a whirl. Well, now that the Switch is out and selling like hot cakes, a new version of the game is coming to the console to bring it to a much bigger audience. Funky can use his surfboard to hover in mid-air and stomp on spikes.

We'll continue to report on the Direct Mini's news as the morning progresses.

For non-Nintendo fans looking to get their Souls game on, the remastered version is likely to come to the Xbox One and PC as well.
