New Nintendo And Nintendo Switch Accessories Unveiled

Kirby Star Allies Heads to the Nintendo Switch on March 16

Kirby Star Allies Heads to the Nintendo Switch on March 16

Despite the usual content, "MTA" will feature a story mode starring Mario alongside its more competitive modes. His move set, which includes a spike-resistant surfboard, double jump, hover and infinite rolls and underwater corkscrews will allow novice players to enjoy the title when it launches on May 4th. This, sadly, might be more of a pipe dream than anything else, as Mario Maker relies so heavily on the dual-screen setup of the Wii U. If, however, Nintendo can figure out how to make the control scheme work on the Switch, the port will be an nearly guaranteed success. The Battle Pack is available for purchase now on the Nintendo eShop for $14.99.

And yet, Nintendo fans came away from the event encouraged about the future of the Switch.

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. It will challenge your ability to figure out an opponent's position and stroke to determine which shot could give you an advantage. I saw this petition of Japanese game developers who said we had to make a smaller controller.

This not only marks the series' first outing on a Nintendo system, but also the first time it's ever been portable. The teaser trailer for this new version of the iconic and hard title didn't show us much, but it did give us a date for its release: May 25. Kirby can also throw hearts at enemies.

You can see the latest Kirby Star Allies footage at the 2 minute and 21 second mark in the Nintendo Direct Mini.


In "Hyrule Warriors", you can play as a whopping 29 different characters from the "Zelda" universe, including Link and Zelda.

Third party content ended up supplying a huge portion of the Direct overall, actually. The title is coming out this spring.

It was first released on the Nintendo DS in 2008, and instantly became a cult hit.

In the past year, Nintendo has been undergoing a bit of resurgence with Switch sales skyrocketing thanks in part to a selection of first-party games.

The World Ends With You Final Remix is a stylish RPG set in modern-day Japan where Neku must fight his way through various battles in order to save himself, and the world. It involves a character named Neku who is forced to participate in a risky game or be wiped out from existence. The releases last fall of Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, further spurred demand. 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 free update will also bring three new outfits and many snapshot filters. After the lackluster reception of Ultra Smash, it seems the team behind the games went back to the drawing board, and this title looks much more promising. June brought us ARMS, July featured Splatoon 2, August had Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and Super Mario Odyssey landed in October.
