Ways Mario Tennis Aces Can Change the Game

Nintendo Direct conference

NINTENDONintendo Direct is rumoured to take place later today

Including a number of announcements. The last game, called "Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash" was launched on the Wii U in late 2016, but received mixed reviews from critics due to a lack of content, which was considered unorthodox for an entry in the franchise. That and the visually impressive Kirby Star Allies. And out of nowhere, Square Enix's Nintendo DS cult hit (released a solid decade ago) The World Ends With You is getting re-released on the Switch and will be available at some point in 2018.

The Switch port of Dragon Quest Builders, the Dragon Quest-themed take on Minecraft, has a demo available today. You will also be able to play with any friend anytime.

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. The game will release on the Switch on May 4th. The game is the next iteration of Mario Tennis games.

Past Nintendo consoles have suffered from a lack of third-party and cross-platform support, but this morning's announcements showed that Nintendo continues to make solid progress on that front as well, with Dark Souls: Remastered heading to Switch in May and Payday 2 in February. It's a living, breathing world that players will explode using motion controls of the Joy-Con's in order to sing the song of the forest, its inhabitants, and the plants within as they unlock new abilities.

The first Mario Tennis on the Nintendo Switch comes with its first Story Mode. Originally a Wii U title, Tropical Freeze features various members of the DK crew in both single player and co-op play, but the Switch version will also feature Funky Kong as a playable character. Payday 2 is set to release on February 27th.

While we'll take any excuse to replay Dark Souls for the umpteenth time, we're not entirely sure why this remaster exists.
