SI_WiiU_HyruleWarriors_image1600w

On Thursday, Nintendo held a "Mini Direct", in which it announced a number of upcoming games that are once more bound to rack up major sales.

A lot of re-releases made the news today - players can expect Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Dark Souls: Remastered and The World Ends With You: Final Remix on Nintendo's newest console.

Players shown so far for Aces include Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi, and Nintendo revealed that Aces will also include a story mode for the first time in the franchise since Mario Tennis Power Tour on Game Boy Advance.

Sadly there's not much else known about the Switch version of the game, although considering the original The World Ends With You remains one of the most cherished RPGs on any platform, the fact we're getting new content is certainly a plus in our book.

The game launches later this year, though Nintendo did not detail a more specific release window. The second set will be released on March 23rd. There's local and online co-op, full touch-screen support, and HD rumble to enhance the feel of weapon recoil. While the remaster will also be available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC, its release on the Switch marks a trend for the latest Nintendo console of a willingness to release titles not under the Nintendo banner. Wave two (March 23) will add fighter Blastoise and support Pokémon Mew and Celebi. Dark Souls is coming to Nintendo Switch on May 25, 2018. The Switch version of Dark Souls will be include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC and will have improved frame rate and resolution. Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is out on the Nintendo Switch this summer.

Nintendo Released almost a Dozen Big New Games for Switch
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. Wave 1, releasing on January 31 will introduce the new battle character Aegislash with the support set Mega Rayquaza and Mimikyu.

A free update is coming to Super Mario Odyssey, and it's filled with balloons. New updates, DLC, remasters, and re-releases were among the highlights. Expect Fe in February 16.

Indie platformer Celeste features pixelated graphics and an assist mode that lets you tweak the difficultly level.

What sets Nintendo apart is the familiarity of its IP, from Mario to Zelda to Donkey Kong, all of which have been icons of the video game zeitgeist for decades.

After releasing on the PC, PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, and Xbox One, this co-operative multiplayer shooter graces the Nintendo Switch.
