Moves Nintendo Needs to Make to Win 2018

January 2018 Nintendo Direct Mini Covers Upcoming Switch Games

Today, it happened. Nintendo posted a short Nintendo Direct Mini episode early this morning to quietly announce a new Mario Tennis game, Nintendo Switch versions of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (now with more Funky Kong!), Hyrule Warriors, DLC for Super Mario Odyssey and surprisingly, two mature titles: Payday 2 and Dark Souls Remastered. A Nintendo 3DS demo of Kirby Battle Royale was also announced. One particular video game, however, stands out - a sports video game of iconic video game character Super Mario. The game will launch later this year but no specific release window has been announced.

The first major releases are Platinum Games classics Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2, coming on 16 February. The new edition will feature a story mode, as well as new layers to the series' core gameplay stylings. Are excited about any particular Nintendo Switch game?

With a time limit of seven days, Neku will team up with unlikely allies as the Game's stakes grow more and more deadly...

On the DLC front, the free Super Mario Odyssey content addition is titled Luigi's Balloon World and comes out next month.

It's a competitive online mode that has you hide a balloon somewhere across the world's maps. 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.

Payday 2 will be launching with exclusive character Joy, a Japanese heister with a LED powered changing mask.

Egypt denies New York Times report on acceptance of US Jerusalem move

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will also be rereleasing for the Nintendo Switch. The game will launch on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.

The playable characters shown also have sporty new looks.

This is a small amount to go on to be completely fair, but still doesn't mean that the possibility of Nintendo coming forward with an announcement in the coming days is impossible.

FE the new platformer will be coming to Switch.

There's still much more information coming for The World Ends With You: Final Remix, such as a concrete release date for the game outside of TBA 2018. But bringing From Software's title over is a big 3rd party get for the system.
