Following that came the reveal of new Pokémon heading to Pokkén Tournament DX. Additionally, we'll see Mega Rayquaza and support Pokemon Mimikyo. A 2nd wave includes Blastoise, Mew, and Celebi. The Battle Pack is available for purchase now on the Nintendo eShop for $14.99.

Speaking of abilities, the new trailer also gives fans a taste of new two copy abilities that Kirby is adding to his arsenal. "The action-RPG will also include a sizable new scenario that gets right to the heart of the story", according to the presentation. Well, now we have the release date: March 16, 2018.

Nintendo Switch is getting Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition. No release date has been announced, but it will arrive this year. Updates will come with time, but you can find it in Spring 2018. Different game modes, like a new piranha mode that looks similar to the Piranha Challenge from the first Mario Tennis game on the Nintendo 64, also appear to be part of the game.

Towerfall Ascension developer Matt Makes Games announced that its upcoming platfomer Celeste will be released on Nintendo Switch on January 25.




FPS fans weren't left out either, with the previously announced Payday 2 finally confirmed to be launching on February 23. The update adds a mode called Balloon Mode, which can be activated by finding Luigi in each Kingdom. Joy seems to be a hacker of sorts and owns an LED mask unlike other characters, just like the ones we see in indie game Ruiner and Watch Dogs 2. With a free update coming to Super Mario Odyssey next month, players can engage in a new leaderboard based activity - Luigi's ballon World.

Yeah, I know, yet another Mario Tennis may not sound that interesting at first - the last couple entries in the series for 3DS and Wii U have been a bit bland - but there's reason to be excited for this new game. It arrives February 27. Players will be able to sing across a attractive expanse on February 16. It's a very lovely game but we still don't know an enormous amount about it.

Kirby Star Allies will launch on March 16, exclusively for Nintendo Switch. It's a game about climbing a mountain covered in spikes.

Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze, originally released for Wii U, will include a "beginner-friendy" mode to balance out its infamously hard gameplay.
