Nintendo Reveals a Dozen Big Games for Its Switch Console


The World Ends With You, Square Enix's classic Nintendo DS role-playing game, is heading to Nintendo Switch, Nintendo announced during today's mini Direct presentation.

In and among a raft of remaster announcements, new game features, existing title updates and Nindie news, the highly anticipated Nintendo Direct January 2018 also served up the addition of Luigi to Super Mario Odyssey. The teaser trailer for this new version of the iconic and hard title didn't show us much, but it did give us a date for its release: May 25. We don't have too many specifics but Mario Tennis Aces will be Switch's return to the court with a fancy new story mode alongside it. The game is being given the subtitle Final Remix and was a vague 2018 release window. Though third-parties largely ignored the Wii U, Nintendo put out some good games for it, so here are five more Wii U games Nintendo should port over next. The news from this Nintendo Direct Mini may not have been a record-breaker in excitement, but it will at least serve to whet appetites until more news is revealed. If you've ever played a "Dynasty Warriors" game, you'll be right at home. Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey, fans got many reasons to buy Switch previous year, and in 2018, the company is giving more reasons to pick its handheld console. While Kirby games have taken the pink puff into a giant robot or a kingdom of yarn, this new game goes back to the roots of Kirby while bringing cooperative gameplay into the mix.

Nintendo will need a big, original game for late 2018, and our money is on Animal Crossing.

To the excitement of many around the world, Bandai Namco announced yesterday that Dark Souls would be getting remastered for all current-gen platforms. It will be the first Mario Tennis title since the Game Boy Advance iteration to include a story mode.

The new DLC will be part of a free update that will be released in February. This Wii U game has been hailed as the best Donkey Kong platformer in a long time, and now Switch players will be able to play a new mode as Funky Kong starting May 4.
