It included information regarding a remaster of the original Dark Souls coming to the Switch in the future.

Announced at this afternoon's Nintendo Direct Mini, Dark Souls: Remastered aims to let players "experience the rich world of Dark Souls in upscaled 4K resolution with 60FPS", so says the game's publisher in a statement. Dark Souls Remastered includes the main game plus the Artorias of the Abyss DLC.

The source of the rumor is a Twitter user in Japan who found this listing from a retailer that had Dark Souls Remastered listed for the PS4. These versions, in charge of a team different from that of Switch, will incorporate the lighting and effects of Dark Souls III, as well as revised textures. Amazon is taking pre-orders for Dark Souls Remastered on Sony PS4 and Microsoft Xbox One for $39.99 each. However, as of right now there's been no announcement concerning crossplay between platforms, so we'll have to wait and see what happens.

Other third-party publishers like Rockstar Games also took notice of the platform and released their 2011 cult classic L.A. Noire on the platform and 2015's smash indie hit Rocket League also came to the platform previous year with cross-play support. Dark Souls: Remastered for Switch will mark the first time the franchise will appear on a Nintendo console (and the series' first portable entry).
