Dark Souls, Donkey Kong Country lead a wave of Nintendo Switch ports

Nintendo Direct conference

It was first released on the Nintendo DS in 2008, and instantly became a cult hit. No specific release date was mentioned, but it is now planned for sometime during the year.

Pokken Tournament DX has a new Battle Pack, which essentially serves as the game's Season Pass.

Wave 2, will be on March 23, will introduce the battle character Blastoise along with a support set of Mew and Celebi.

Kirby Star Allies comes to Nintendo Switch on March 16th, right around the corner. And now the new trailer for the game showed off a set of new abilities. Co-op friends can also combine their abilities to produce new effects. The game is being given the subtitle Final Remix and was a vague 2018 release window.

One of the features coming with the Switch version is local splitscreen multiplayer.

The Nintendo Switch subreddit was no different, featuring people analysing a Nintendo tweet of New Donk City billboards in Mario Odyssey, trying to decide whether or not that secretly indicated a new Fire Emblem game was in development and going to be announced soon.




Nintendo Switch is getting Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition.

Now, the action RPG is coming to the Switch, delivering spruced up visuals, a new epilogue and rejigged controls. Since then, the game has been made available on nearly all Nintendo consoles.

Heroines from SNK will be taking on one another in SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy. June brought us ARMS, July featured Splatoon 2, August had Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and Super Mario Odyssey landed in October. This Nintendo Direct Mini was centered around the Switch, showing owners of the popular gaming platform what titles await them over the next few months. This new character has some unique styles and abilities with a amusing twist in the platforming gameplay.

A new playable character named Joy will be a timed exclusive on Switch. Players can also play in assist mode, which allows players to tweak the games hard to a slower or faster pace including taking on features such as the inability to take damage.

The first major releases are Platinum Games classics Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2, coming on 16 February. And Celeste from developer Matt Makes Games will be available on 25th January. Finally, the port I may be most excited for is Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Switch, a tricky platformer made easier by the inclusion of Funky Kong when it releases on May 4th.
