Dark Souls: Remastered confirmed for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch

Dark Souls has a problem with not explaining the game to players.

There's pretty much naff-all other information except that it'll be remastered. Then head down to the comments and let us know if you're planning to return to Lordran when Dark Souls returns to stores later this year.

Nintendo wrapped up it's January 11th Direct with a huge announcement: Dark Souls Remastered is coming to Nintendo Switch.

From Software has also revealed a Dark Souls Trilogy box-set, set to be released on PlayStation 4 in May.

Also coming to Switch this spring is a new Mario Tennis game. The real meat and potatoes of the set come with the extras that are included.

This means that we'll soon be able to play through the entire Dark Souls trilogy on modern consoles. Most people including myself were anxious about the software lineup for the Nintendo Switch come 2018, but it seems that Nintendo knows what it's doing and will do its level best to ensure that the Switch is stacked with a number of exclusives and 3rd party titles to keep Switch owners entertained for the entire year.

But it's not all just remasters.

There's even a new Mario title in the works, as the man of many hats picks up his racket again in Mario Tennis Aces, due out this spring. However, there will be a great discount for all PC owners of the original game. The game makes its current-gen debut May 25. The box set will include all three Dark Souls games, each respective game's soundtrack, framed art, Dark Souls' themed bookends, and three dictionaries containing the entirety of Dark Souls' item list.

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.
