It doesn't change the fact that Switch is not mentioned
I honestly don't understand what you are saying. The article talks about Dark Souls Remastered (the first game, not the trilogy) for Switch, PS4, etc. It does not mention PS4 and others getting a remastered trilogy.

People are so used to Nintendo consoles having nothing but Nintendo games and a couple of small third party games that somehow "leaning pretty heavily on third party games" sounds like a bad thing now.

If we don't get a full Fire Emblem reveal before E3 then this is gonna be a quiet year for E3, as then the big game for E3 will be Fire Emblem and most likely just 1 more game for 2018.
E3 can be big no matter what. It doesn’t have to be a game for this year. We still need Retro’s game.

Maybe they decided to keep the big stuff for E3 and focus on Christmas. Anything big coming Q1/Q2 I guess we would already know about.
Yeah we definitely new launch dates for Splatoon 2, ARMS, BotW, Snipperclips, Mario Kart 8DX and all those Nindies before January 12th 2017...

The beauty of Nintendo Directs is the ability for Nintendo to drop one whenever they want. They aren't tied to E3 or other trade shows. We will probably be getting at least one or two more directs before June hits.

I for one am excited to see what I may have missed on other platforms get announced for Switch. Nintendo deserves 3rd party sales, because they have actually bust their behinds to get their platform right this time. They are still asinine in some of their decisions for sure, but they've shown they can't just stick their fingers in their ears and ignore what's going on around them. Except for online :(

Can you play dark souls online? Like monster hunter?
Yes you can play online with friends but it's not at all like Monster Hunter or any other coop game online. It's a bit harder to interact with people you want. But you can in effect play the whole game coop if you wish.

Is what stealth saying is true? If it is what a epic disappointment this Mini-Direct will be, no wonder Nintendo didn't announced it 2 days earlier as usually big Directs are.

I hope there's more love for Wii U exclusives in this season of ports, instead of old multiplatform releases that, beyond portability, are going to look and play worse than in any other system.

Any new game is welcome, but it riles me how DKC or Captain Toad are still trapped in that platform.

Please no more Wii U ports. I want Nintendo to focus on new games, it was bad enough Mario Kart 8 was re-released rather than a brand new one.

(Not saying a new one won't happen still obviously..)
It was bad? Mario Kart 8 Deluxe being released was bad! Oh my.

It’s all money in the coffers to pay more artists to make more beautiful Nintendo things.

Plus, I’d love a Super Mario World 3D Deluxe. The joycons were made for such sweet two player out of the box action.

For the record, I never said this Direct was third party only. Today's Direct is not third party only.

I said Nintendo is leaning pretty heavily on third party titles + Wii U ports in 2018.

Based on what I know, that's an accurate statement.

That's not a bad thing. Because Switch is getting some really awesome third party stuff this year. Not all of it will be announced during the Direct.
Makes perfect sense.
They can't have all years be like 2017, they need time to build up up those lineup.
Having 1 year of exceptional 1st party support followed by a quiter year of 3rd parties is a solid plan (although of course having a year with a bit of both would be better imho).

Nintendo is just gonna announce a direct either tomorrow or next week and that will be a day before it airs. Something like that. Best to just not get your hopes up with any of these rumors.
