In today's Nintendo Direct video, the company announced new Kirby and Mario Tennis games headed to the console, plus a couple indie games and re-releases.

Pokken Tournament DX will receive some new content through a DLC "Battle Pack".

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle DLC - Speaking of Donkey Kong, guess who's going to be the next playable character in Nintendo's weird partnership with Ubisoft?

Nintendo's slate of re-releases - including The World Ends with You and Tropical Freeze - will include new content. The World Ends with You, first released in North America in 2008 on Nintendo DS, is set in a highly stylized, modern-day Japan. Fans can download that and give the game a whirl as of today.

The Wii U's Mario Tennis Ultra Smash disappointed Mario sports fans around the globe for multiple reasons, but it looks like Nintendo are course correcting with this latest entry for Switch. They also announced that the game will be releasing on March 16th.

Wii U and 3DS title Hyrule Warriors is also landing on Switch this Spring in a Definitive Edition that will include Breath of the Wild outfits among other new features.

The big one, however, is Dark Souls Remastered.

The story is far more complex than this brief synopsis, but we'll let you discover the twists and turns it can take once the game launches. The Switch is also getting a port of the action RPG Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana this summer, which came out on the PlayStation Vita in 2016. Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana will also be coming to the Switch after its launch late a year ago.

While a specific date has yet to be revealed, Mario Tennis Aces will be available for the Nintendo Switch sometime this Spring.

"Celeste" and "Fe", indie games from EA Originals, are heading to the Switch on January 25 and February 26, respectively. You'll run, climb, and glide through its many mysteries and use motion controls of the Joy-Con to sing in tune with creatures and plants to unlock new abilities.
