The World Ends With You: Final Remix will be available for the Switch sometime this year.

He added that Dark Souls 3 marks the end of the series as a whole. The box set will include all three Dark Souls games, each respective game's soundtrack, framed art, Dark Souls' themed bookends, and three dictionaries containing the entirety of Dark Souls' item list. While PC, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One X players will be able to enjoy 4K, the Switch will run at 1080p and 30fps in docked mode, and likely a lower resolution when in portable mode.

"Dark Souls" 2011 will be receiving the remaster treatment after rumors of its release. Bandai Namco has confirmed the same by publishing a trailer.

Dark Souls Remastered will support native 4K resolutions and 60fps, as well as upscaled textures.
