Nintendo Direct Mini Apparently Coming Today With Dark Souls Remastered Announcement

Rumours have persisted that FromSoftware classic Dark Souls, and potentially its sequel, could be in line for high-profile remasters on current systems, and a potentially new leak is causing fan speculation to go into overdrive.

So, there you have it: Dark Souls: Remastered on the PS4 Pro will no longer feature HDR Lighting.

A little while back, there were rumblings that the people behind the original "Dark Souls" game were planning to announce something big, and now, it is official. It's also headed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Dark Souls Remastered, featuring all DLC, and a snazzy visual upgrade, will be available on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on May 24. Today during a mini-Nintendo Direct, Nintendo revealed Dark Souls: Remastered coming to Nintendo Switch on May 25. The fact that it doesn't run at true 4k on the Xbox One X did disappoint some gamers especially since the console comes with a $499.99 price tag.

Several publication sites have posted that there will be a 50% off deal for owners of Dark Souls if they decide to purchase Dark Souls Remastered.
