Mario Tennis Aces is coming to the Nintendo Switch this year. Nintendo

The World Ends With You: Final Remix will include the full original game as well as a new scenario.

Third-party developers shied away from the Wii U, but can't wait to get their games on the Switch.

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.

The battle pack can be bought as one set and costs $14.99.

There are free demos available on the Nintendo eShop for Kirby Battle Royale and Dragon Quest Builders.

Funky has a host of new abilities that combine all of the other Kong's abilities into one character, including double jumping, hovering, and infinite rolling.

Regardless of the story's setting, we're just happy to see that mode return.

Kirby Star Allies (March 16) - This game was originally announced at E3, but Nintendo has confirmed some "new abilities" for Kirby and co. when the game launches in March.


As for Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, this is pretty much the same game that came out on the Wii U, although this version includes all the content that both the Wii U and 3DS iterations had. It has new outfits for Zelda and Link based on the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It's coming Spring 2018.

"A new Mario Tennis game is bringing a new level of skill and competition to Nintendo Switch".

Another new title coming to the Nintendo Switch, the action RPG is the latest in the long-running Ys series. It releases summer 2018.

It meant getting rid of key games like Mario Oddessy from the machine altogether just to play an ageing title that easily ran on the Xbox360 and PS3.

In February a free update is coming to Super Mario Odyssey adding a new multiplayer mode - Luigi's Balloon World - in which players hide and try to find balloons hidden in the game's large open world kingdoms. New perks, modes, and ways of plays are coming to the Nintendo Switch on February 27.

My personal favourite addition is a new Mario tennis game called "Mario Tennis Aces". You'll need to use a special move at the end of each fight to win, which does sound a little gimmicky, but you'll be able to find out when it launches in summer.

Other games including Fe and Celeste, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Dark Souls Remastered, SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy, Payday 2, and Mario + Rabbids DLC are also getting major updates. The newest DLC will include a new story mode that finally includes Donkey Kong properly into the story. The DLC arrives in spring.

Payday 2 had a short video sequence introducing a Nintendo Switch exclusive LED mask for Joy when it arrives on February 27th. Another platformer, Matt Makes Games' Celeste, will let you climb risky mountains on February 27.
