Nintendo Direct Recap 1/11/18 - A Big Surprise That Everyone Saw Coming

Dark Souls Remastered

If anyone doubted that Nintendo is serious about building on the success of the Switch in 2018, this morning's announcements should go a long way toward convincing them otherwise. Unfortunately, it's only a minigame with leaderboards, but Nintendo knows their audience: "It's like a new form of objective-based speedrunning!" as the announcer described it in the Direct video. If you're unfamiliar with the series, Payday is a game that asks players to pull of elaborate bank heists with a team of online multiplayer friends.

Hyrule Warriors will also be coming to Nintendo Switch in a Deluxe Edition.

Super Mario Odyssey Update (February 2018) - In a bid to improve the already-acclaimed Super Mario Odyssey, Nintendo says there'll be a new mode for people who have completed the main story. Dark Souls Remastered is coming to the Switch. "Mario Tennis Aces" is scheduled to be released during spring this year.

SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy will only feature female fighters from SNK's number of fighting games.

The first major releases are Platinum Games classics Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2, coming on 16 February. The Wii U's underratedDonkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is getting ported to the Switch, out on May 4th.

If you compare the Switch's first year lineup to that of the PS4 with and the Xbox One, it's clear to see that the Switch just had much stronger first-party content, but not necessarily third-party content. The Switch is also getting a port of the action RPG Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana this summer, which came out on the PlayStation Vita in 2016. As well as returning characters Funky Kong will also be joining with added abilities like infinite rolls, infinite corkscrews underwater, and a double jump. It's hitting Switch with a new epilogue and Joy-Con support. Basically, it's an asynchronous hide-and-seek game.

Luigi's Balloon World is a competitive mode players can access by finding Luigi in each kingdom. Nintendo never revealed there would be a Nintendo Direct on January 11th. 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.
