Dark Souls Remastered is coming to current platforms, including Nintendo Switch

The release date for the game on Nintendo Switch is May 25th 2018. Unfortunately, it's only a minigame with leaderboards, but Nintendo knows their audience: "It's like a new form of objective-based speedrunning!" as the announcer described it in the Direct video. But who cares, it's one of the most critically-acclaimed games coming to one of the most innovative consoles of recent years; that's enough in our book.

Despite the listing only coming up for PS4, it stands to reason that the Dark Souls Remastered edition could also come to Xbox One - after all, Dark Souls released on the 360.

The Nintendo Switch port of The World Ends With You, dubbed -Final Remix-, will allow players to play the game using its classic touch-screen control system, or with a brand new control scheme that uses the Joy-Cons. 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.

They give a brief overview of what the combat is like and the general gist of the story in the mini-Nintendo Direct below. It's competitive search and find with balloons, complete with online leaderboards.

But it's not all just remasters.

Nintendo Switch had a great first year, full of exclusives and third party games.

Put simply there's a motherload of games and extra content coming to the Switch to bolster its now healthy lineup.

The only disappointment is the lack of a Virtual Console for the Switch, a feature that can be found in the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Most recently Rockstar Games's LA Noire also made its way to the Nintendo Switch and there might be some truth to the rumor, however at this point nothing has been announced by either Rockstar or Nintendo. But there was an abundance of tidbits that should also have Switch owners excited.
