Today is a very good day for fans of the Dark Souls series, as Bandai Namco has finally confirmed that the first entry in the series will be making a glorious comeback later this year as Dark Souls Remastered, coming on PC and consoles.

Let us know what you think about this mini presentation, and if it satisfied all of your Direct needs or not.

On the first-party side, Nintendo announced Kirby Star Allies will arrive for the Switch on March 16th, while the new title Mario Tennis Aces is slated for release sometime in the Spring. The Switch is not going to turn into a dumping ground for games that came out on the Xbox 360 or Wii U four or five years ago. On the indie side, the EA Originals game Feis coming to Nintendo's console on February 16th, while tower platformer Celesteis out on January 25th.

Pokken Tournament DX is getting a new DLC Battle Pack, which will be released in two waves. It seems that it only took one generation for that decision to be made, as Dark Souls Remastered has been officially announced.

Going into the national championship game with Georgia, Harris led the SEC with an average of 8.2 yards per carry. After this year's 1,000-yard, 11-touchdown season, Harris will reportedly return for one more fall in Tuscaloosa.

There will be much more information coming regarding Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition for Switch, such as a concrete release date. Switch owners won't get their hands on NIS America's outstanding action RPG Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana until this summer, but they will also never have to experience the shoddy translation that caused the PlayStation 4 and Vita versions to be completely re-localised. New DLC for Mario + Rabbidsincludes new story content starring Donkey Kong as a playable fighter this Spring.

We'll continue to report on the Direct Mini's news as the morning progresses.

And that's good news given how many Switch units have sold in the past 10 months, as there's likely to be a lot of people eager for fresh games. Dark Souls is being remastered for the PC, Xbox One - with enhanced support, the PS4 - with Pro support, and the Nintendo freaking Switch.
