Nintendo Direct Mini January 2018: Every Nintendo Switch Game Announced

Nintendo Direct Mini January 2018: Every Nintendo Switch Game Announced

The most exciting part of the announcement by far was the revelation that we'd be getting some brand new story content.

"Hyrule Warriors" is a spin-off based on "The Legend of Zelda". When it came to smartphones a few years ago, its original praises were echoed by a new generation. Additionally, you'll see Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana and Payday 2 heading to the Switch this year as well. The Switch version will be out later this year and feature reworked touch controls and the option to play with the Joy-Cons, as well as a whole new scenario to play through.

Wave 2 of the DLC will feature Blastoise as a playable fighter. Alongside the game's release on the Nintendo Switch (and giving players the first portable version of the game), Nintendo also revealed that a new character will be coming with the Switch release next month named Joy.

Towerfall Ascension developer Matt Makes Games announced that its upcoming platfomer Celeste will be released on Nintendo Switch on January 25. Previously announced for other platforms, this is the first news of the IP reaching the Nintendo Switch.

Here's a fighting game where players can customize hardcore woman and beat each other down. The DLC arrives in spring. This one hits the Switch on March 16.

More Donkey Kong news landed a bit later in the Nintendo Direct Mini. That changes when the game hits shelves on February 16.

I personally am looking forward to playing action JPRG Ys VIII, the handsome and musical Fe, and mega-hard pixelly platformer Celeste, which has been given a few easier modes for people who don't want bite marks on their controllers. It's coming January 25.

Another Wii U game, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, will come to Switch on May 4. Nintendo is aiming to serve up the game this spring. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze arrives on Switch on May 4.

It's finally been announced. Dark Souls Remastered is coming to the Switch. Now Nintendo has officially confirmed the game's release date, and as it turns out, those looking forward to Kirby Star Allies on the Nintendo Switch won't have to wait too much longer to get their hands on the game.

They give a brief overview of what the combat is like and the general gist of the story in the mini-Nintendo Direct below.
