Mario Tennis Aces will feature a new Story Mode and boss battles. The sport title will be released this spring and promises to be a multiplayer go-to game, but with a single-player story mode too. So we're happy to see the character come to Nintendo Switch, in the form of the previously announced Kirby Star Allies.

The Switch port of Dragon Quest Builders, the Dragon Quest-themed take on Minecraft, has a demo available today. Bank heist shooting game PAYDAY 2 will be released on February 27th, 2018. The games that are coming to the Switch includes a new Mario Tennis title and ports of The Worlds Ends With You, updates to Odyssey, perhaps most unexpectedly, Dark Souls, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Payday 2.

On the DLC front, the free Super Mario Odyssey content addition is titled Luigi's Balloon World and comes out next month.

The big one, however, is Dark Souls Remastered.


Nintendo closed the Direct Mini with a major new announcements: Dark Souls: Remastered will bring the challenging 2011 action-RPG to Nintendo Switch with updated graphics.

After tons and tons of moments of waiting, Nintendo finally launched the supposed Nintendo Direct and it has lots of games which will feature on the platform.

"Nintendo Switch is the fastest-selling home console in history, and Nintendo is not taking our foot off the gas in 2018", said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of sales and marketing, in a statement.

A new version of Hyrule Warriors will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch in 'Spring, ' including all maps and missions, plus all 29 playable characters from both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the game, along with all of the previous paid downloadable content.


Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will release on the Nintendo Switch on May 4. A 2nd wave includes Blastoise, Mew, and Celebi. Players will compete in a balloon hiding contest, where they are tasked with hiding a balloon in a specific kingdom in under 30 seconds, and another player must find it within 30 seconds.

Nintendo DS action-rhythm-RPG The World Ends with You: Final Remix is coming to Nintendo Switch later this year.

EA has mostly abandoned the Switch with the exception of this game, and it appears to be an exceptional game from them.

It's a ladies-only affair with SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy.


Another DLC announced was adding Donkey Kong to Mario + Rabbids, adding a new world and story to the game.
