After weeks of rampant speculation, a Nintendo Direct Mini unveiled a number of unexpected reveals, the biggest being a remaster of Dark Souls.

Although there were rumours swirling, Nintendo surprised most of us today by debuting a new Nintendo Direct Mini in order to announce a number of upcoming releases and new content coming to the Switch. Some titles got announced, while some we already knew about got release dates.

The latest entry in the long-running, beloved side-scrolling franchise starring Kirby is arriving on the Nintendo Switch in short order: "Kirby Star Allies" launches on March 16.

Mario Tennis Aces will feature a new Story Mode and boss battles. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze arrives on Switch on May 4.

According to Zoink, Fe will cost $19.99 when it releases digitally on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Switch.


"Dark Souls" is a game known for being brutally hard and sharply designed. Knowing every area of the game's kingdoms will be key.

Not only are the graphics getting an upgrade, but fans of the multiplayer experience in Dark Souls are also getting a boost. And yes, it also comes with the "Artorias of the Abyss" downloadable content.

REUTERS/Kim Kyung-HoonAn event guest plays with the Nintendo Switch in Tokyo, Japan during its announcement on January 13, 2017. It'll bring a new online activity called Balloon World with two competitive modes: hide it and find it. Players will be able to hide balloons and find those hidden by others, scoring points for finding balloons fastest. Instead of traversing dungeons and meeting interesting characters, you're hacking and slashing and shooting and magicking your way through hundreds of enemies at once on battlefields. Additionally, the update will come with new outfits and new filters for Snapshot Mode. ARMS characters, Legend of Zelda, and others will likely appear at launch or as DLC in the future. Both games originally came out for the Nintendo Wii U back in 2014. It mixes the fashion and culture of Tokyo's Shibuya district with a unique timing-based action/RPG game system.

It's not just about first party games either as some major third party titles are also making the journey over to the Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo showed everyone that they aren't quite done with Super Mario Odyssey this morning. You've seen him in swim shorts and a poncho in Odyssey, now it's tennis whites. Perhaps he'll be playable as well?
