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

Dark Souls PS4 Remaster

Though it wasn't quite the spectacle I thought it might be, they did deliver on the hype-worthy news. Nintendo says the mode will add "a variety of missions, boss battles and more".

From Software's critically acclaimed hit Dark Souls will find a new home on the Nintendo Switch this Summer with the release of Dark Souls Remastered. It is also the third tennis video game releasing this year following AO Tennis and Tennis World Tour. It will be a paid DLC set to be released in spring 2018. Although it is only a brief tease of the upcoming release, the slither of gameplay that we've seen so far leaves a good impression and has us hopeful that Mario Tennis Aces may just knock it out of the park.

Pokken Tournament DX Deluxe Battle Pack Nintendo announced Pokken Tournament DX DLC, The Deluxe Battle Pack, at the event that will bring new characters to the game. A 2nd wave includes Blastoise, Mew, and Celebi.

The game will be called Kirby Star Allies and is set to release on March 16th. There is the new "Artist" ability that lets you paint your own smackdowns and there's the "Spider" ability that lets you ensnare enemies. On the go, two players will be able to share Joy-Cons to participate in multiplayer co-op on a single Switch screen. It's going to get hectic. Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is scheduled to come out this Autumn 2018.

Players will be able to experience Hyrule Warriors in 1080p HD graphics in TV mode.

I personally am looking forward to playing action JPRG Ys VIII, the lovely and musical Fe, and mega-hard pixelly platformer Celeste, which has been given a few easier modes for people who don't want bite marks on their controllers. The 2013 game Payday 2is also coming to the Switch on February 27th, complete with online cooperative gameplay.

Luigi also appears (alongside all the usual suspects) in the new Mario Tennis Aces, which is pretty much what you'd expect. The update is coming in February.

Ys VIII Lacrimosa of DANA is an action RPG that tells the story of two souls split yet united by fate.

Splatoon 2 has been out for the Nintendo Switch since July 2017, and in less than one year, it's already outsold some of its biggest competitors. It's also coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

On the DLC front, the free Super Mario Odyssey content addition is titled Luigi's Balloon World and comes out next month. Then, roles reverse. Find the balloons hidden by your opponent before time runs out.
