Final Cut heads to Switch in 2018

Dark Souls has never been available on a Nintendo console, but a graphically-updated version of the original game will land on the Switch in May.

The 2008 Nintendo DS title - later re-released on iOS in 2012 - will be updated with HD visuals for the Switch release, using both Joy-Con and touchscreen controls.

Take your first look at the Switch version above - what do you think of it?

There's no Xbox One version because the format is irrelevant in Japan, but there's no reason why the box set couldn't also be released for Microsoft's console, or the PC, if it's brought to the West.

The story mode will include a host of single-player missions and boss battles, as well as new gameplay tweaks. It gets more interesting when you realized that the Switch made such an accomplishment without going through a massive price cut. There are two modes; "hide it" and "find it".

A number of other third party titles were also given release dates, including PAYDAY 2 (23rd February), Fe (16th February), Celeste (25th January), Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana (Summer), SNK HEROINES Tag Team Frenzy (Summer) and ACA NEOGEO ART OF FIGHTING 2 (today!).

Nintendo showed off new footage from Payday 2, which comes to Switch on February 27.

EA has mostly abandoned the Switch with the exception of this game, and it appears to be an exceptional game from them. It's unclear what the resolution and frame rate are on a standard Xbox One or PS4 at this point.

PC gamers might be able to pay about half as much, though. Others are the addition of a new game mode to Super Mario Odyssey and a Dark Souls remaster. According to a press release, Dark Souls Remastered is being developed by From Software, the studio behind the original trilogy, instead of being outsourced to a third-party studio. Sure, it may a port of an old game, but it is an important game to many people. The Switch made its debut about a year ago and Nintendo has moved millions of units in the U.S. alone.
