A new DLC for Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle adds Donkey Kong to the game, and seemingly will add new story content in the form of a plot centred around lovable DK.

Following that came the reveal of new Pokémon heading to Pokkén Tournament DX.

Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze, originally released for Wii U, will include a "beginner-friendy" mode to balance out its infamously hard gameplay.

Nintendo also announced that the Wii U title Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will be coming to the Switch, with a brand new beginner-friendly mode featuring Funky Kong.

The debut of everyone's favourite pink blob sees new abilities that let you cast spider webs, hurl hearts at enemies to have them join your team, and up to four friends can join in for this epic adventure.

Unlike many other games shown during the Nintendo Direct Mini presentation, The World Ends With You -Final Remix- wasn't given a proper release window.

We had new game announcements too, including the latest outing for Mario and co on the tennis court in Mario Tennis Aces, and all female fighter SNK HEROINES Tag Team Frenzy. The Switch version of the game will be called "Hyrule Warrior: Definitive Edition" and will include new outfits for Zelda and Link, which are based on their outfits from "Breath of the Wild", according to Kotaku.

The big one, however, is Dark Souls Remastered. A final release date wasn't announced, but The World Ends With You will hit the Switch at some point in 2018. It will be right at home on Switch when it releases laster this year.

No release date was set for the game, but it's due out at some point this year for the Nintendo Switch. The platformer Celeste will release on January 25, and another platformer, Fe, will launch on February 16.

Sadly there's not much else known about the Switch version of the game, although considering the original The World Ends With You remains one of the most cherished RPGs on any platform, the fact we're getting new content is certainly a plus in our book.
