Nintendo is proving that Switch excitement is about more than low expectations

Fans of the "MT" games already know what to expect from any sequel at this point, though Nintendo is including something fairly new for this latest installment (more on that later).

More than just a new "Mario Tennis" game, Nintendo debuted a gaggle of new games headed to the Switch this year. At the time of release, the console was highly praised by many reviewers and later the games that landed on the same added more fuel to its success.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze (May 4) - Yet another Wii U port making its way to the Switch, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is set to land on the new console in May this year.

Players will be able to continue Mario's epic new world's adventure after the end of Super Mario Odyssey with the help if Luigi.

Hyrule Warriors Ultimate Edition (Spring 2018) - Nintendo is releasing what it calls the "ultimate version" of Hyrule Warriors, the popular Zelda-universe game that we've previously seen on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. The update will also bring new costumes and filters for the camera, which is a nice touch for a freebie.

Similarly, three Switch titles - Super Mario Odyssey, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle and Pokkén Tournament DX - are receiving downloadable content. Odyssey's is free, and it will add a new "Balloon World" minigame to the package along with new Snapshot filters and outfits for Mario.

Unannounced exclusives, including at least one big title for release in October or November, are more than likely. The game will be available from April 24. But we're now a year out from the big Nintendo Switch presentation of last January, and the enthusiasm surrounding the Switch has yet to die down.

Mario's trips to the soccer field, baseball diamond, or even Olympic Games have taken him out of his standard side-scrolling adventures and while his parties and go-karting games are definitely the fan favorites, there's a soft spot out there for the Mario Tennis series. Nintendo will release the game in Spring 2018.

The reveal of Dark Souls: Remastered for the Switch confirms a rumor that has been simmering ever since Nintendo first announced the Switch. We're also quite thrilled to see Nintendo return to Mario Tennis so quickly after 2015's Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash was met with an overwhelmingly negative reaction.
