The Latest News from Nintendo

The final announcement of the Mini Direct, and probably the largest, is the confirmation of the rumored Dark Souls coming to Nintendo Switch. Luigi finally makes an appearance, but only to introduce a new mini-game: Balloon World.

Anime-minded fans got some nuggets, with a port of Ys VIII and the new title SNK Heroines, both courtesy of NIS America.

Pokken Tournament Deluxe is getting a couple of new paid DLC characters in the form of Battle Pack Waves 1 and 2.

The first set will include Aegislash as a playable character and Mega Rayquaza and Mimikyuu as support characters. Wave 2, however, will add Blastoise as a playable fighter with support Pokemon, Mew and Celebi. These will be released Jan 31st and March 23rd respectively and you can purchase the complete battle pack now.

Players looking for more relaxed gameplay can try out the Dragon Quest Builders demo, live on the Nintendo eShop today.

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

New copy abilities and gameplay footage were shown for Kirby Star Allies, including Artist and Spider. The game will be released in Spring 2018.

Mario Tennis Aces is a brand new Mario Tennis game coming to Switch in 2018. This game will release this Summer. The game is being developed by Camelot who has previously worked on a number of Mario Sports titles.

After completion of the main story in SMO, you will continue your adventure with Luigi with the latest update, which adds a competitive Balloon World Mod where you will be hiding balloons from other players and vice-versa. This update will be released in February.

The announcement of the game's launch was made alongside other high-profile announcements, such as Mario Tennis and Dark Souls, just to name a few. 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.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will also be getting a new story update where players will be able to take control of Donkey Kong. Find the DLC this Spring.

Kirby Star Allies was announced back at E3. It arrives February 27.

In it, the company laid out a roadmap for PR surrounding two upcoming games, A Way Out and Fe, including a note about a Nintendo Direct occuring in January that would feature the latter. Feel free to let us know in the comments section below. And yes, it's getting a re-release on Switch now. In the game, players will guide Madeline as she climbs any and all surfaces possible as she ascends Celeste Mountain if she has the stamina possible.

The trend of Wii U ports continued, with both Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition.
