Nintendo Announces Mario Tennis Aces for Nintendo Switch

Doom Switch

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.

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