A lot of re-releases made the news today - players can expect Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Dark Souls: Remastered and The World Ends With You: Final Remix on Nintendo's newest console. While the remaster will also be available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC, its release on the Switch marks a trend for the latest Nintendo console of a willingness to release titles not under the Nintendo banner. Dark Souls: Remastered updates the original with technology from Dark Souls 3, and it includes the Artorias of the Abyss DLC. This is a new paid DLC pack coming to the game this Spring. Mario Tennis Aces is also scheduled for this Spring, with the Switch version introducing a brand new story mode. Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is coming on May 4, 2018.

It looks like the rumors were true, and the newest Nintendo Direct presentation has just been unleashed upon the world. New wrinkles in tennis gameplay will challenge your ability to read an opponent's position and stroke to determine which shot will give you the advantage.

The World Ends with You, the Nintendo DS Classic, is coming to the Nintendo Switch. Notable for both games is that they are exclusive to the Switch, unlike most blockbuster video game titles, which are mutliplatform.

Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition - Spring 2018 Hyrule Warriors is coming to the Switch complete with all of the DLC from the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game as well as the ability to play co-op using split Joycon. The first set will be released on January 31st.
