Nintendo made a number of announcements in a Nintendo Direct Mini video this morning. The notoriously demanding game that first challenged players to explore and master its risky world in 2011 will come to a Nintendo system for the first time on May 25, 2018.

Nintendo posted a Direct presentation today, in which it teases the remake of Dark Souls Remastered in the final segment with a short, but dramatic trailer.

Dark Souls: Remastered launches on Steam on May 25. For the newer Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro versions, the game will run at an upscaled 4K resolution while still maintaining 60 fps. Switch will sport 1080p30 in TV mode. Some games try to scare you with bump-in-the-night shocks and far-off howls, but Dark Souls doesn't require such predictable methods of terror. There is no HDR lighting for the PS4 Pro version, ' wrote Dark Souls community head honcho, Vaati (via GearNuke).
