Games revealed for Switch includes 'Dark Souls Remastered'

Dark Souls Remastered will be announced today

Dark Souls Remastered will be announced today

"Developed by FromSoftware Inc., DARK SOULS: REMASTERED enables players to explore the twisted ancient land of Lordran in the first title of the critically acclaimed action role-playing series like never before". Finally, the port I may be most excited for is Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Switch, a tricky platformer made easier by the inclusion of Funky Kong when it releases on May 4th.

Despite its age, the original Dark Souls is still an incredibly popular game and players have been asking for a remastered version for a while now.

The DS version of the game utilized the console's unique features, such as shouting through the microphone, performing motions on the touchscreen, so it will be interesting to see what the Switch version of the game will be bringing to the table.

Zoink's Fe marks the second EA release on the Switch, and considering the Switch audience's reception to Indie games, it's likely going to be a victor (that and it's only $19.99).

NPD has yet to share an official press release on the sales of consoles and games during the month of December 2016.

As anticipated as the remastered edition was, it was never expected to release at the typical full price of a video game. The engine will also be improved to support six concurrent players, which should make covenants and invasions much more interesting.

Update: Sadly, we don't know anything else about From Software's "New Project" just yet, but in other exciting news, it's been announced that its classic 2011 RPG Dark Souls is being remastered for Nintendo Switch. "Hyrule Warriors" will be coming to Nintendo Switch, along with brand new costumes themed after "Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild". It's also coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

The upcoming Dark Souls Remastered will not include new assets based on Dark Souls III engine, any combat differences, and HDR lightning on the PS4 Pro version; VaatiVidya, a SoulsBorne content creator has confirmed in a recent Tweet. Boy, was it a good one too!

This spring, Nintendo will also be releasing "Kirby Star Allies" and "Mario Tennis Aces", which will come with a new story mode and will include missions and boss battles.
