The game was released in 2007 and more than a decade later, it looks like it will be given a new lease on life on the Nintendo Switch. This version of the game will also include the ability to play as Funky Kong, according to Eurogamer. We only have the announcement trailer, which sadly doesn't feature any gameplay footage.

Praise the sun, a remastered version of the original Dark Souls is on the way.

It's easy to get disappointed that Nintendo didn't reveal a bunch of new games during this latest Direct, but I wouldn't freak out and start worrying that Nintendo is running out of ideas.

Although there were rumours swirling, Nintendo surprised most of us today by debuting a new Nintendo Direct Mini in order to announce a number of upcoming releases and new content coming to the Switch. These remasters will include not only updated graphics but "rebuilt lighting and SFX similar to Dark Souls 3". The refresh will also be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

And there's a PlayStation 4 Dark Souls Trilogy Box that bundled the three games of the series together alongside lithographs, a statue and some book; it'll set buyers back am mighty £370.

Looking forward to Dark Souls Remastered or are you in "Remaster Demon's Souls First" camp? Updated versions of Dark Souls, The World Ends with You and Hyrule Warriors - among other games - are headed to the hybrid portable console.

Dark Souls: Remastered will feature what publisher Bandai Namco is calling a "Dynamic 4K resolution" and an increase in the number of players able to participate in an online session.

Are you glad that the rumors were true? Developer FromSoftware has since released two sequels, Dark Souls II (2014) and Dark Souls III (2016).

Get ready to see YOU DIED often, Nintendo fans. Leave your comments below.

Rather than a full Direct stream, this one ran at around 15 minutes but the information came fast and furious. Now making TechRaptor my home.
