The best thing about Nintendo Switch is that it can be used as a home console and also as a handheld console, so expectations from a new Fire Emblem game are obviously high. As anyone who played those games - or the brilliant Switch title Golf Story - knows, these sports story modes tend to be incredibly entertaining detours from the competitive play that are loaded with creative minigames.
There's even a new Mario title in the works, as the man of many hats picks up his racket again in Mario Tennis Aces, due out this spring. Dark Souls has never been available on a Nintendo console, but a graphically-updated version of the original game will land on the Switch in May.
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. This is quite useful for Switch users mainly because only a few people (like myself) bought a Wii U.
Aside from these two headliners, my favorite announcement of the Nintendo Direct Mini was the arrival of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze to the Switch.
The unlikely merging of worlds in Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle throws another character into the mix with a visit from Donkey Kong with a new storyline, you'll need to pick up the season pass or purchase the DLC on its own to try this update though.
Before we begin listing everything in the box set, you should now that, as of writing the article, it's planned only for the PlayStation 4. Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is scheduled to come out this Autumn 2018.
Payday 2 will release in Europe and Australia on February 23rd, and in North America and South America on February 27th.
The reveal of Dark Souls: Remastered for the Switch confirms a rumor that has been simmering ever since Nintendo first announced the Switch.
Though one of the Wii U's lesser-known first-party titles, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker was a puzzle game that was absolutely worth the $20 asking price. At the time of release, the console was highly praised by many reviewers and later the games that landed on the same added more fuel to its success.
If you want to check out the Direct for yourself take a look at the video below!
The game launches later this year, though Nintendo did not detail a more specific release window.
