Nintendo released a surprise Nintendo Direct presentation. Though it wasn't quite the spectacle I thought it might be, they did deliver on the hype-worthy news. The game lets you, along with up to four friends cooperate to plan out and execute heist, earn money, and build your career as a hardened criminal.

There are free demos available on the Nintendo eShop for Kirby Battle Royale and Dragon Quest Builders. It will be a paid DLC set to be released in spring 2018.

The World Ends With You The World Ends With You will see the re-release on Nintendo Switch. A 2nd wave includes Blastoise, Mew, and Celebi. This month adds Aegislash as a new battle Pokémon and Mega Rayquaza and Mimikyu as support Pokémon.

We also get a new Kirby game with Kirby Star Allies. Fe release date for the Nintendo Switch is February 16. Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is scheduled to come out this Autumn 2018. Players will be able to play with either touchscreen or traditional controls.

And last but not least, the game will support HD Rumble effects via the Joy-Cons, whether you're shooting, blowing stuff up, or knocking people down. However, with the reveal of the new Nintendo Switch game Mario Tennis Aces, there is definitely hope for the series yet.

Ys VIII, the latest game in the long-running action RPG series is coming to the Switch this Summer.

Splatoon 2 has been out for the Nintendo Switch since July 2017, and in less than one year, it's already outsold some of its biggest competitors.

After releasing on the PC, PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, and Xbox One, this co-operative multiplayer shooter graces the Nintendo Switch. Players will compete in a balloon hiding contest, where they are tasked with hiding a balloon in a specific kingdom in under 30 seconds, and another player must find it within 30 seconds. It's competitive search and find with balloons, complete with online leaderboards. The update will also include some new filters for the photo mode along with three new outfits.

This Nintendo DS cult classic gets a makeover for the Nintendo Switch.

Here's a fighting game where players can customize hardcore woman and beat each other down.

SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy was announced, it will feature an all-female ensemble. You can customize your favorite characters as you see fit in this stunning fighting game.

As Nintendo mentions, this new game appears to be a return of sorts to the GBA's Mario Tennis: Power Tour, which featured a surprisingly-deep RPG-like story. The Wii U's underratedDonkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is getting ported to the Switch, out on May 4th. The DLC pack will be available this spring. It arrives February 27.

Additionally, players can unlock a "B-side" to each of the game's chapters, bring in new challenges and new ways to overcome each challenge.

The platforming, open-world adventure, Fe, is coming to the hybrid console. Unfortunately, it's only a minigame with leaderboards, but Nintendo knows their audience: "It's like a new form of objective-based speedrunning!" as the announcer described it in the Direct video. Players will be able to sing across a lovely expanse on February 16. Play in old-fashioned pixels this month, January 25.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze originally launched for Wii U and this Switch re-release will be available on May 4.
