Dark Souls Remastered is coming to Nintendo Switch

Sandra Phillips | 14 January, 2018, 03:19

With no word on the now confirmed Metroid Prime 4 and Pokemon Switch title, many fans are beginning speculate that Nintendo is not yet done with its Nintendo Directs for January. During an interview with Nintendo France's managing director Philippe Lavoué, Lavoué explained that third-party releases play a major role in the Switch's sales in France, accounting for 26 percent of all games sold.

The announcement of the game's launch was made alongside other high-profile announcements, such as Mario Tennis and Dark Souls, just to name a few.

The game features a brand new story mode, which is the first since Mario Tennis on Game Boy Advance.

The game will be called Kirby Star Allies and is set to release on March 16th.

Also announced at Nintendo Direct was a host of older Wii U video games now getting ported over to the Nintendo Switch.

Other announcements included confirmation that Payday 2 was coming to Switch on February 27th, and free DLC for Super Mario Odyssey launching in February. The fan-favorite ability to mix and match powers will be returning for this game.

The fun and exciting game from Team 17, the same group who brought players the sidesplitting mayhem of The Worms series, gives a much lighter take on what it feels like to be locked up behind bars. Once a trailer for A Way Out featuring the two main characters debuted at The Game Awards on December 7 as the marketing plan indicated it would, a January Direct seemed all but certain.
