After some hype over the last few days, Nintendo dropped a Nintendo Direct Mini today and it came with a plethora of announcements. Since the Direct appeared this morning, your friends at Mammoth Gamers have summarized the biggest stories to come out.

A new exclusive character will be added to the game for the Switch: Joy, a "Japanese computer whiz".

Players can also use the Joy-Con controllers to try combat in an all-new way, though the Direct Mini didn't share details on how that mechanic would work. The Switch version of Dark Souls will be include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC and will have improved frame rate and resolution.

While we'll take any excuse to replay Dark Souls for the umpteenth time, we're not entirely sure why this remaster exists.
