Nintendo Direct Mini 1/11/2018 Summary

Share

Zoink's Fe marks the second EA release on the Switch, and considering the Switch audience's reception to Indie games, it's likely going to be a victor (that and it's only $19.99). Nintendo will release the game in Spring 2018. In addition to a new chapter of the Mario Tennis series, it's also releasing action RPG The World Ends with You: Final Remix, JRPG Ys VIII, fighting game SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, and Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze.

Super Mario Odyssey will be getting a free update with Luigi's Balloon World, online competitive modes will be added. While Kirby games have taken the pink puff into a giant robot or a kingdom of yarn, this new game goes back to the roots of Kirby while bringing cooperative gameplay into the mix. We also learned of some new DLC coming to Nintendo titles that are already out. So we're happy to see the character come to Nintendo Switch, in the form of the previously announced Kirby Star Allies. The first wave of new characters are set to arrive on January 31 and will include Aegislash as a battle character, while Mega Rayquaza and Mimikyu joins the game as the super set of characters.

Do you think the Nintendo Switch will continue to top the sales chart in 2018 as well?

A new Mario Tennis game is bringing a new level of skill and competition to Nintendo Switch.

Paid-for DLC for fighter Pokken Tournament DX also arrives in two waves on 31 January and 23 March, adding new fighters like Blastoise. Among the other titles announced for the Switch include a port of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Kirby Star Allies, Fe, and several others.

We can't wait to get our hands on this game when it releases for Nintendo Switch sometime in the spring.

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.

"Over the last two years, Nintendo has managed to completely turn around its business", said Piers Harding-Rolls, a games industry analyst at IHS Technology. Players can also use the Joy-Con controllers to try combat in an all-new way, though the Direct Mini didn't share details on how that mechanic would work.

Celeste is a pixelated platformer that feels a bit like a mix between Towerfall and Super Meat Boy.

The downer is that he'll be a non player character, so you won't be able to play as him and run around the epic Kingdoms that make up the game.
