Dark Souls, Mario Tennis and more coming to the Nintendo Switch

The Japanese tech giant said Switch owners will get new goodies from popular series like Super Mario and Dark Souls before July. He'll be swinging into the game this Spring via a new DLC pack. The game will launch later this year but no specific release window has been announced.

And out of nowhere, Square Enix's Nintendo DS cult hit (released a solid decade ago) The World Ends With You is getting re-released on the Switch and will be available at some point in 2018. Sadly, you won't be able to get both at once - the first half of this update rolls out on January 31 and the second lands on March 23. Final Remix will include a new scenario, and is expected to release sometime 2018.

Kirby Star Allies (March 16) - This game was originally announced at E3, but Nintendo has confirmed some "new abilities" for Kirby and co. when the game launches in March.

The Nintendo Switch has some serious momentum right now, setting a record as the fastest-selling video game system of all time moving over 4.8 milling units in just 10 months. With the only non-port of the bunch being Mario Tennis Aces, which will see the long-awaited return of a story mode to the series.

And still others were incredulous about how the biggest tech show in the world could lose electricity in the first place. With apologies to Alanis Morissette: "It's like rain on your wedding day; it's a blackout at a giant tech show".

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.

On the DLC front, the free Super Mario Odyssey content addition is titled Luigi's Balloon World and comes out next month. Players have 30 seconds to hide a balloon somewhere in the local area - and other players (online) have 30 seconds to find it. One particular video game, however, stands out - a sports video game of iconic video game character Super Mario.

In tandem with what we know is on the way, yesterday's Direct gave us a slightly clearer idea of what to expect on Switch in 2018. You can pick up Kirby's latest adventure on Nintendo Switch on March 16. Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze is being ported over to the Switch. The game will be updated with a new character, Funky Kong.

Dark Souls Remastered (May 25) - The most mysterious announcement by far was Dark Souls Remastered. Fe will be available on February 16 while Celeste will drop on January 25 for Nintendo Switch.
