Nintendo Direct Round-Up; Everything New Coming to Nintendo Switch

A new Nintendo Direct Mini dropped this morning, after weeks of long speculation, featuring new announcements detailing the next few months for the Switch.

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.

My personal favourite addition is a new Mario tennis game called "Mario Tennis Aces". Players can go head-to-head with friends or AI to hone their tennis skills to be the next star of tennis in the Mushroom Kingdom. This new entry will also see the first Story Mode in the series since 2005's Mario Tennis: Power Tour for the Game Boy Advance.

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. So we're happy to see the character come to Nintendo Switch, in the form of the previously announced Kirby Star Allies. It came out a year ago on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, and it's headed to Nintendo Switch this summer. It's competitive search and find with balloons, complete with online leaderboards.

Andrew is IGN's executive editor of news and would love to play a Pokemon tennis game. Players will face many new and returning threats in this new Kirby adventure, coming to the Nintendo Switch March 16, 2018.

If you own or have owned the Nintendo DS, then chances are you might be familiar, played, or have at least heard of The World Ends With You, a cult classic RPG game developed by Square Enix for the DS console.

According to Zoink, Fe will cost $19.99 when it releases digitally on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Switch.

Say what you will about Wii U ports on the Switch, but it's definitely bringing critically acclaimed titles to a much larger audience.

Not only that, the Ultimate Edition will also include Breath Of the Wild themed costumes and couch co-op. The mini-game features two modes, Hite it and Find it mode. It's coming Spring 2018.

The Switch version will also receive Funky Kong as a playable character as well as a "beginner-friendly" mode for gaming newbies. Payday 2 is set to release on February 27th.

Action-RPG Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana features rhythmic battles, large monsters, anime cutscenes, and base-building. There's Assist Mode which lets you tweak different facets of its difficulty such as pace and damage taken along with B-side chapters that have greater challenges. Dark Souls will be released on May 25.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition will be available in "Spring 2018".
