Nintendo closed the Direct Mini with a major new announcements: Dark Souls: Remastered will bring the challenging 2011 action-RPG to Nintendo Switch with updated graphics. The demo will take you through the first chapter of the game.

The update will also bring new costumes and filters for the camera, which is a nice touch for a freebie.

Nintendo waited until Australia was asleep to spring a fast, 15 minute Nintendo Direct Mini broadcast outlining their forthcoming plans for 2018. Super Mario Odyssey got near ideal scores from pretty much all reviewers. The paid Battle Pack DLC for Pokkén Tournament DX will be split in half, the first arriving on January 31st and the second on March 23rd, with each introducing a new battle Pokémon (Aegislash and Blastoise, respectively) and supports.
