Nintendo Direct: New Games Available For Nintendo Switch and 3DS

Nintendo Direct: New Games Available For Nintendo Switch and 3DS

Unfortunately, we've still no news on Nintendo's online service, Virtual Console, or non-gaming Apps.

The Super Mario Odyssey will get a new competitive game mode. It came out past year on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, and it's headed to Nintendo Switch this summer.

Runner3 is the latest entry in the Bit.Trip series.

But then he'll be getting his very own game, with a re-release of the excellent Wii U title Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze on May 4. If you've ever played a "Dynasty Warriors" game, you'll be right at home. Basically, it means that head-to-head pricing with the Nintendo Switch proves that the PS4 can't compete.

Nintendo waited until Australia was asleep to spring a fast, 15 minute Nintendo Direct Mini broadcast outlining their forthcoming plans for 2018.

Payday 2 will release in Europe and Australia on February 23rd, and in North America and South America on February 27th. So, get ready to punish some angels and demons with melee attacks and gunplay.

Nintendo closed the Direct Mini with a major new announcements: Dark Souls: Remastered will bring the challenging 2011 action-RPG to Nintendo Switch with updated graphics.

The last time Mario and his friends played tennis was on 2015's Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash for the Wii U. That said, we still don't have a solid release date for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and Rockstar is still tight-lipped about a GTA V port.

Where's Metroid Prime 4, Pokemon, and Fire Emblem? During the Nintendo Direct in January, the company didn't reveal any specific details about the game. The game will support up to four players.

My personal favourite addition is a new Mario tennis game called "Mario Tennis Aces". Before Dark Souls topped off the Direct, it was revealed that the Nintendo DS rhythm battle classic, The World Ends With You, will be coming to console 10 years after its original release. Gamers that loved, or missed out on, Hyrule Warriors can return on the Switch with Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition later this Spring. The content packages include missions, maps, characters, and weapons. It'll be smashing down with split screen multiplayer in Spring 2018.

Finally, Nintendo is adding some Switch-exclusive features to Donkey Kong. And if you aren't looking for a challenge, you can slow down the gameplay or activate an invincibility mode.

Overkill also announce a new character. This new character has some unique styles and abilities with a amusing twist in the platforming gameplay.

Kirby Star Allies got some updates as well and is slated for a March 16 release. A page for the remake is up on Amazon here; though pre-orders aren't active, you can request to receive an email when they do go live.
