The Wii U's Mario Tennis Ultra Smash disappointed Mario sports fans around the globe for multiple reasons, but it looks like Nintendo are course correcting with this latest entry for Switch.

Switch players will also get bonus new contents that include new costumes for main characters Link and Zelda as seen on the 2017 hit "Breath of the Wild".

The game comes from Camelot, the longtime developer behind the Mario Tennis franchise. After completing the game you will need to find Luigi in the world to play Hide It mode where you can hide a balloon and then find another player's world.

Definitive Edition, Payday 2, and Kirby Star Allies leading the pack. Players will be able to mix some abilities while playing with friends in co-op.

The first announcement from the Nintendo Direct Mini is that The World Ends With You will be coming to Nintendo Switch as the - Final Remix - Edition. This spring, players will be able to download a new chapter of the game starring DK himself. New DLC for Mario + Rabbidsincludes new story content starring Donkey Kong as a playable fighter this Spring. In today's Nintendo Direct video, the company announced new Kirby and Mario Tennis games headed to the console, plus a couple indie games and re-releases.

Greenberg further states that the report will show that Nintendo sold the most overall units with its Nintendo Switch console. Both of these games come from publisher EA.

Lavoué isn't wrong. The Nintendo Switch hardware is less powerful than Sony and Microsoft's, both who had to release a mid-cycle console to add 4K capabilities to their platforms. Donkey Kong will make his debut as a playable character with a new storyline and world in addition this spring. And Dark Souls on the Nintendo Switch? The game will be available on May 25, 2018.
