Mario Tennis Aces Announced for Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Direct Mini Announces Switch's Upcoming Slate

Nintendo Direct reveals Dark Souls is coming to Switch

It's a competitive online mode that has you hide a balloon somewhere across the world's maps. The Switch is also getting a port of the action RPG Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana this summer, which came out on the PlayStation Vita in 2016. He'll be swinging into the game this Spring via a new DLC pack.

"Dark Souls: Remastered" is heading to the Nintendo Switch on May 25. Mario Tennis Aces' story mode doesn't look quite as deep, but it's a welcome addition following the disappointingly bare bones Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash on the Wii U. No word yet on who's developing Mario Tennis Aces, but it's probably Camelot Software (they've done every game in the series to date). Like previous games in the franchise, "Tropical Freeze" puts Donkey Kong and the rest of his family through a perilous adventure across dozens of gorgeous, brilliantly crafted 2D levels. Bank heist shooting game PAYDAY 2 will be released on February 27th, 2018.

Nintendo Switch and PS4 enter the new year unsurprisingly as the top 2 gaming platforms in Japan, with the hybrid console being the clear leader, as it was at the end of 2017, but Sony's platform also showing that it can also pull healthy figures.

It's not just about first party games either as some major third party titles are also making the journey over to the Nintendo Switch. Expect Fe in February 16. Nintendo being Nintendo, the game still comes with two-player co-op, but players can utilize spit Joy-Cons to play together. And out of nowhere, Square Enix's Nintendo DS cult hit (released a solid decade ago) The World Ends With You is getting re-released on the Switch and will be available at some point in 2018.

Another platform for the Nintendo Switch sees you controlling Madeline as she takes on the risky Celeste Mountain. Nintendo never revealed there would be a Nintendo Direct on January 11th.

More Donkey Kong news landed a bit later in the Nintendo Direct Mini.
