Remakes have been rumoured for release on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The original title launched on Xbox 360 and PS3 back in 2011, followed by a PC version a year later. In terms of resolution, Dark Souls: Remastered will offer native 4K resolution at 60 fps.

While it hasn't been confirmed that other premium consoles will be getting all of these enhancements, Bandai Namco has detailed in a press release that both PC and Xbox One X would similarly support 4K resolution.

Praise the sun and prepare to die, because From Software is remastering the original Dark Souls for a re-release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

Obviously Dark Souls: Remastered's arrival on Nintendo Switch is a huge deal for the console. The Direct event will showcase Nintendo Switch software for 2018, with Dark Souls Remastered being the closing announcement. One bit of new information to come from this is that the Remaster will run on the Dark Souls 3 engine.

The mini-direct showcased a short teaser trailer of the game and no gameplay footage.
