While it's only 15 minutes long, it's jam-packed with information regarding new titles, updates, re-releases, and remasters for the Switch.
Here's what Nintendo showed today, from release dates for things we already knew about to a few new surprises.
The games included are the recently announced Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls II: Scholar Of The First Sin, and Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades Edition. This page has since been removed, (Screengrab thanks to ResetEra User Hong) but considering no official announcements have been made on any prices from Bandai Namco, that may just be them trying to put the cat back in the bag.
Tropical Freeze will still be playable either single-player or via local co-op. Luigi hosts Balloon World, where you're given 30 seconds to hide a balloon somewhere on a stage, or find one that someone else has hidden. There are two modes; "hide it" and "find it". Get ready for a very fun game Nintendo fans.
Mario Tennis Aces launches for Nintendo Switch this spring. But this new Trilogy box set really is something else. A new exclusive character will be added to the game for the Switch: Joy, a "Japanese computer whiz". She's a computer hacker who wears a customizable LED mask!
It's easy to get disappointed that Nintendo didn't reveal a bunch of new games during this latest Direct, but I wouldn't freak out and start worrying that Nintendo is running out of ideas. The bad news is that it will only be available in Japan. Another flagship character will land on Switch later this year, with Kirby Star Allies due to launch on March 16th. The publisher has this massive new addressable market that is spending money on games. For example, mixing a water and ice ability will allow you to shoot icicle spears. New additions include Mew and Celebi. Are you psyched for The World Ends With You -Final Remix-? It follows main character Adol, lost on a deserted island and recruiting other shipwrecked passengers to fight and survive.
After all the rumours and tweets, finally the dust has settled and what we thought were rumours came out to be the truth as on 10th January, the Nintendo Direct Mini went live.
Even better, being on the Switch means that TWEWY's unique touch-based controls remain intact.
EA announced that Fe will be released on Nintendo Switch on February 16. The game focuses on exploration and encourges players to explore its open world environment.
Celeste is a pixelated platformer that feels a bit like a mix between Towerfall and Super Meat Boy. There is also a new local multiplayer mode called CRIME.NET Local Play, that will let you set up a local game and invite friends that share the same local network.
