Nintendo Direct Mini Reveals Several New Games and DLC for Switch

The game, which debuted on the Nintendo DS way back in 2007, has a loyal following due to its fresh style.

The deepest fan-pleaser cut has to be The World Ends With You, a quirky DS cult hit with a great soundtrack and great modern aesthetic. And not just the classics, 3DS, Wii, and Wii U games either. If you fail, you're literally erased from existence. Watch the full Nintendo Direct Mini for yourself below, and stay tuned for more news from Nintendo on upcoming content for the Switch. Or you can use the JoyCons if you don't want to smudge up that pretty screen of yours. There's been talk about cloud saves becoming a thing when Nintendo launches its paid online sometime this year, and we're still hoping to hear more about it soon. The Direct also includes details on updates for Super Mario Odyssey, Mario & Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, and Pokken Tournament. Wave 1 of the Battle Pack contains Battle Pokémon Aegislash and a new Support Pokémon Set featuring Mega Rayquaza and Mimikyu. In wave 2 players will have access to Blastoise and support Pokemon Mew and Celebi. Wave 1 will be available January 31, and Wave 2 is scheduled for March 23.

While the filing could be for a new game in the series, it could be more proof that N64 and Gamecube releases are coming to Virtual Console.

Kirby Star Allies (March 16) - Kirby's debut on the Switch gets a release date of March 16th! A Nintendo 3DS demo of Kirby Battle Royale was also announced.

In "Hyrule Warriors", you can play as a whopping 29 different characters from the "Zelda" universe, including Link and Zelda. New outfits will also be included such as Sunshine Shades and knights armor.

Mario is returning to the court in Mario Tennis Aces. The new edition will feature a story mode, as well as new layers to the series' core gameplay stylings. This game will be releasing this Spring. Once you complete the main game, you can seek out Luigi within the game to jump into the new offering. In “Hide It” mode, players have a certain amount of time to hide a balloon. It's a race for others to find your balloon and you to find theirs as fast as you can. It will be available exclusively on Nintendo Switch.

This game, like several other Switch games, was originally a Wii U title. He'll be swinging into the game this Spring via a new DLC pack. FE will release on the 16th of February. Celeste the pixel platformer will also be coming to the Switch. She is a timed exclusive for the Nintendo Switch version. Joy is a Japanese computer whiz who wears a custom LED light mask that changes her appearance as she sees fit. Payday 2 Nintendo Switch release date is February 27.
