Dark Souls Remastered, probably in the top percentile of requested PC games given the state of the original version on PC and its popularity, is apparently one of several announcements due at a secret Nintendo Direct due to broadcast today.

According to multiple sources, both in development and retail, in the next few hours Nintendo will announce a Nintendo Direct Mini to air shortly afterwards showing 2018 software for Switch. No price tag has been attached to the title, but Dark Souls: Remastered should be available digitally and physically for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X, and PC on May 24. Unfortunately, full support of mouse and keyboard on PC, the creators of Dark Souls Remastered did not provide any information.

With the details Bandai Namco has released so far, players can look forward to a completely enhanced version of the game. Along with the visual enhancements, the game will include the DLC from the first game, 'Artorias of the Abyss'.

The collection is a bit pricey, however, sitting at about USD$450. 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. Dark Souls: Remastered marks the Dark Souls series debut on a Nintendo platform and for the first time ever, can be played on the go with the unique capabilities of the Nintendo Switch console. While not explicitly stated by Bandai Namco, this likely means that the box set is not planned for release in any western territories.
