Nintendo Direct reveals Dark Souls is coming to Switch

Nintendo Direct Mini Announces Switch's Upcoming Slate

That's right; you have 30 seconds to hide a balloon in the world before a player must find it.

We also get a new Kirby game with Kirby Star Allies. New Pokémon are set to be added to Pokkén Tournament DX, including Blastoise and Aegislash. Wave 2 follows on March 23rd. Additionally, we'll see Mega Rayquaza and support Pokemon Mimikyo.

The standout ports include Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition.

Fe was announced back in 2016, as part of EA's indie game publishing initiative, EA Originals. He's essentially indestructible. The Switch version of Tropical Freeze will release on May 4th.

The first stage of the game takes place in Hyrule Field, a location that will be very familiar to fans of The Legend of Zelda series. Most games shown during the presentation were slated for a spring or summer release, though, so perhaps the game will be available within the next two quarters if development goes smoothly.

All in all, Nintendo 3DS continues to sell at a high rate, although the lack of releases this 2018 makes likely that the platform will see a considerable drop this year, and the same can be said for the PlayStation Vita.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is getting a new character. He'll be swinging into the game this Spring via a new DLC pack.

BlackBerry teases KEYOne successor and mystery new phone for 2018 launch
In addition, TCL introduced a new version of the highly-acclaimed BlackBerry KEYone smartphone , the so-called Bronze Edition . BlackBerry released the KeyOne and Motion smartphones in 2017 to positive reviews.

The biggest third party announcement is that the first Dark Souls video game is getting remastered.

It's a rhythm based game that brings the DS version's touchscreen controls onto the Switch.

Players will be able to experience Hyrule Warriors in 1080p HD graphics in TV mode. The platformer Celeste will release on January 25, and another platformer, Fe, will launch on February 16.

As Nintendo mentions, this new game appears to be a return of sorts to the GBA's Mario Tennis: Power Tour, which featured a surprisingly-deep RPG-like story. This time, there's a story mode complete with missions and boss battles.

Considering the productive year that the Nintendo Switch had in 2017, recent reports have revealed the exclusive titles that will be making it to the console this year.

The Nintendo Switch port of The World Ends With You, dubbed -Final Remix-, will allow players to play the game using its classic touch-screen control system, or with a brand new control scheme that uses the Joy-Cons.
