One of the problems of the old Wii U was that when the device was first announced, it had a bit of third-party support; however, it didn’t stick. The console’s failure to grip consumers and ship units meant that, before long, third-party developers were jumping ship, leaving the Wii U with little more than a steady stream of Nintendo titles and a small pool of half-complete ports, which sold about as badly as you’d expect.

But now that Nintendo is back to being top dog, third-party developers can’t wait to throw themselves into the big N’s latest console. One such developer is Namco Bandai, who briefly appeared in today’s Nintendo Direct to show off their latest offering: a remastering of Dark Souls, which will be coming to every major console... as well as the Switch.

Not much was shown off of the remaster. All we saw was a lone, yet familiar bonfire, with the Dark Souls title appearing in front of it - not much of a trailer, but it was revealed later that it will include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC and, also importantly, an improved framerate and resolution, which might make it possible to play through Blight Town. It was also suggested that they might expand the multiplayer to accommodate six players at once: the same as in Dark Souls 3. That's interesting.

There’s not much else to say at the moment except it will launch on May 25. I have my fingers crossed for a Solaire Amiibo as well: I don’t expect Nintendo would do it unless they wanted to drown in money. And what company would want to drown in all of the money?
