Nintendo Direct Mini Apparently Coming Today With Dark Souls Remastered Announcement

Dark Souls is being remastered for the PC, Xbox One - with enhanced support, the PS4 - with Pro support, and the Nintendo freaking Switch. The PC version is not so well respected, but the community has crafted a number of mods to improve the experience.

The announcement also follows a string of other welcome third-party game announcements include DOOM, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus from Bethesda.

Dark Souls Remastered will be releasing on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Oil approaches 2015 highs on fewer United States rigs, OPEC
The Iran situation "has the market a bit on edge", said John Kilduff, a partner at Again Capital LLC, a New York-based hedge fund. Oil traded above $61 a barrel as signs of slowing U.S. drilling added to optimism that the global crude surplus is abating.

In case you haven't heard, Dark Souls is making its way to current-generation platforms in a new version of the game aptly titled Dark Souls: Remastered. Actually, we do know why: Bandai Namco are also releasing it for the Nintendo Switch. Nevertheless, the challenging, but rewarding nature of Dark Souls inspired an entire genre of games, like 2015's PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne.

The reveal trailer doesn't actually reveal much - just the main character kindling a fire - but Nintendo provided a few more details in an accompanying press release. Namco Bandai doesn't discuss what kind of frame rate we can expect on the standard PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but the hope is that we'll get 60fps there as well. The Dark Souls box set is retailing 49,800 yen, which equates to around $440.

It's time to light a bonfire and praise the sun, because Dark Souls is returning from the dead once more. It's possible that the report is bogus, so do take it with a pinch of salt until you see the footage.
