Mario Tennis Aces smashes on to Nintendo Switch this Spring

News The World Ends With You Nintendo Switch Nintendo Direct

When a pre-recorded Nintendo Direct presentation dropped out of nowhere on the company's website yesterday, it immediately became one of the top trending stories of the day. Between teasing posts and some cryptic tweets, it seemed that Nintendo was certainly up to something. The Nintendo Direct just proved it.

As part of the Nintendo Direct-mini, the "online home for exclusive news" as the Japanese developer describes it, Nintendo announced the latest installment of the popular Mario Tennis series aptly named Mario Tennis Aces for the Nintendo Switch. However, Managing Director Philippe Lavoué insists that release was just a "test case" for the publisher EA and that it will be "doubling down" as the World Cup comes closer.

The second wave of new characters for "Pokken Tournament DX" will arrive on March 23. No exact release date was given for the DLC, but it will be out sometime this spring.

Wave 1 will launch on January 31 and includes Aegislash as a battle Pokemon as well as Rayquaza and Mimikyu as support Pokemon. From March 23rd Blastoise will be added as a playable Pokémon, while Mew and Celebi will be support Pokémon. And if you purchase the battle pack now, you'll have immediate access to a new set of avatar items. So we're happy to see the character come to Nintendo Switch, in the form of the previously announced Kirby Star Allies. You and a friend can team up and bust out of jail together, or you can work against one another, if you're feeling competitive. One example was combining Ice and Water to create an Icicle Lance attack. You get abilities and battle types that you can use in 10 battle modes. The game is being given the subtitle Final Remix and was a vague 2018 release window. It includes all the content and DLC from the Wii U and 3DS versions, as well as new outfits from Breath of the Wild.

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

Mario is returning to the court in Mario Tennis Aces. Also to be expected are boss battles and a mission mode. Since then, the game has been made available on nearly all Nintendo consoles.

The PS4/Vita/PC RPG from 2017 will be available for Switch during the summer. As a reward, you can move up in rankings. The new costumes are called Musician Hat, Sunshine Shades, and knight armor.

Donkey Kong's being added to the former and Luigi, along with a balloon-based racing mode, to the latter.

Nintendo fans (and game fans in general) are as excited about the Switch as they have been about anything in ages. It is unknown if there will be a Rabbid DK to accompany him. Bank heist shooting game PAYDAY 2 will be released on February 27th, 2018. They will also have their own set of weapons and hacker skills. It's Nintendo's big release ahead of Easter 2018, so there's a lot riding on it.

Nintendo revealed another slew of titles that will come to the Switch, from old favorites and cult classics to, uh, Dark Souls. Juggling more than one character isn't an easy task for most, and allowing different methods to achieve this balance makes the game more approachable for everyone.

I personally am looking forward to playing action JPRG Ys VIII, the attractive 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. This game will be available May 4th. Otherwise, it looks like the multiplayer action seen in Triple Deluxe is back here.

Nintendo is communicating with its fans on a regular basis through live streams and Twitter updates. And if you aren't looking for a challenge, you can slow down the gameplay or activate an invincibility mode.
