Kirby + Dark Souls + Mario: Nintendo Direct January

by | Jan 11, 2018 | News, Videogames | 0 comments

Nintendo kicked off 2018 with a surprise Nintendo Direct Mini event this morning. The brief presentation lasted less than 15 minutes, but in that time Nintendo dropped enough big names to have us excited for months to come. 

The theme of the event seemed to be a mixture of Wii U ports and updates to released and previously announced games. The one big exception was the reveal of Mario Tennis Aces, an all new Mario tennis game that’s set to include a story mode for the first time on console.

The other major new game reveal was Dark Souls Remastered, a game that was previously announced for Xbox One and PS4, but which had only been rumored for the Switch. Dark Souls Remastered will land on the Switch on May 25. 

Among the other big announcements was a new trailer for Kirby Star Allies, set to debut on March 16. We got new looks at the indie hits Fe and Celeste as well, which now have confirmed release dates of February 16 and January 25 respectively.

As for the updates to existing games, Pokken Tournament DXSuper Mario Odyssey and Mario + Rabbids are all getting some fresh DLC. Pokken‘s DLC includes Blastoise on March 23, Mario + Rabbids’ is getting Donkey Kong sometime in the Spring and Luigi is coming to Odyssey and bringing the all new Balloon World with him in February.

Other announcements from the presentation included a Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze port coming to the Switch on May 4, a Payday 2 port arriving on February 27 and a The World Ends With You port coming sometime later this year.
