It came out previous year on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, and it's headed to Nintendo Switch this summer. I personally know at least two people who have been waiting to get a Switch specifically until the announcement of this game. The following year, Nintendo raised their profile by talking about the Wii U in one prior to E3.
More news on the Dark Souls front. Despite the fact that it only featured a single exclusive game announcement, the presentation still felt like the awakening of a dormant volcano. The title is also headed for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC as well.
Say what you will about Wii U ports on the Switch, but it's definitely bringing critically acclaimed titles to a much larger audience.
"Tropical Freeze" is a side-scrolling platformer and it will be available for the Switch on May 4. The game is known for its difficulty, so to make things easier, Nintendo is introducing a new character named Funky Kong. Importantly, the system launched with a strong lineup of titles.
Even better, Mario Tennis Aces will be the first Mario Tennis game since the Game Boy Advance Tennis titles to incorporate a story mode.
EA describes Fe as "a new type of platform adventure [.] where the story is up to you to discover, without handholding, told wordlessly through the discoveries you make during gameplay". Not quite Wimbledon, then.
"This is further proof that Nintendo has momentum coming into 2018", said Ward.
Who doesn't love the fluff ball that is Kirby?
It seemed like it was only a matter of time before Nintendo served up another "Mario Tennis" game for its flock - and the timing is just right, especially now that the #Nintendo Switch is shaping up to be the company's most successful console to date [VIDEO].
The game will be called Kirby Star Allies and is set to release on March 16th.
The Nintendo/Koei Tecmo title wasn't incredible by any stretch, but the Wii U and 3DS certainly catered to hardcore fans of Zelda and Dynasty Warriors. It's being re-released on the Switch. Also in the set are three item encyclopedias, ten art sheets (including a special frame), and two bookends, one with a bonfire, and one with a knight. Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze is being ported over to the Switch.
The main objective of the game is to try and escape the confines of the prison without getting caught. These will, of course, need adapting for the Nintendo Switch. Otherwise, expect fan favourites like Athena, Leona and Mai to all be present and accounted for.
Payday 2 is an action-packed, four-player co-op shooter that lets players don the masks of the original Payday crew - Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains - as they descend on Washington D.C. for an epic crime spree. Celeste will launch digitally for the Nintendo Switch on January 25, 2018.
