Earlier this morning after a ton of teasing, Nintendo released the long-rumored Nintendo Direct.

While today's Nintendo Direct Mini was a bit low on actual new game announcements, one such announcement stood out, the return of Mario Tennis.

The World Ends with You, the Nintendo DS Classic, is coming to the Nintendo Switch. New updates, DLC, remasters, and re-releases were among the highlights. This month adds Aegislash as a new battle Pokémon and Mega Rayquaza and Mimikyu as support Pokémon.

Plus, the Nintendo Switch version of Payday 2 see a new playable character named Joy a Japanese computer whiz who wears a custom LED light mask that changes her appearance as she sees fit. Both waves can be purchased right now.

In addition to the focused action game play of leading one soldier against a massive horde of enemies, the Dynasty Warriors series is also known for its epic storyline. The demo can be downloaded from the eShop and played docked or portably. Players can also enjoy two-player cooperative play with separate Joy-Cons. No date for Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition has been set aside from a spring release window.

Mario Tennis returns with an all-new entry on Nintendo Switch. Mario Tennis Aces will be out this Spring. And this time the game adds the first story mode since the Mario Tennis game on Game Boy Advance, offering a new flavor of tennis gameplay, with a variety of missions and boss battles.

Super Mario Odyssey will also be receiving a new game mode, a free update introducing Balloon World.


Luigi's Balloon World is a competitive mode players can access by finding Luigi in each kingdom. There are two modes; "hide it" and "find it". In the video, he is shown using a banana as a boomerang and fighting it what appears to be a new jungle location. Find the DLC this Spring.

The Wii U platformer Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is coming to the Switch with Funky Kong as a new playable character. Better yet, you can mix and match friend abilities to perform ultra new combos. The game will release on the Switch on May 4th. As a young cub, you come into this world and venture forth to try and get the forest to sing once more, uncovering secrets, completing side quests and howling along with other creatures in the forest to bring them on your side.

It's a ladies-only affair with SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy.

The four-player co-op shooter will see players band together to execute elaborate heists and get paid.

The game will feature local and online multiplayer, touch-screen controls, and HD rumble. Nintendo also provided an official release date: March 16.

You can now take one of the most infamously hard experience of the last generation with you wherever you go. Dark Souls: Remastered updates the original with technology from Dark Souls 3, and it includes the Artorias of the Abyss DLC. With the introduction of well-known, proven multiplatform titles into the Nintendo catalog (such as Skyrim and Dark Souls) alongside proven franchises such as Zelda and Mario (both of which had performances that outshined even the most optimistic of Nintendo's projections) the old dog on the block clearly still has some bark.
