Nintendo Direct Mini Unveils Some Major Titles for 2018

Nintendo Switch is getting Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition.

The Switch version brings together both versions and adds outfits from Breath of the Wild for both Link and Zelda.

You can expect to die no matter where you are when the game hits the Switch on May 15th this year. For starters, the trailer shows Mario running along a world map, implying that the explorable areas of the previous games have been done away with. This time, there's a story mode complete with missions and boss battles.

Nintendo also announced that the Wii U title Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will be coming to the Switch, with a brand new beginner-friendly mode featuring Funky Kong. The game will be available on March 16.

Players looking for more relaxed gameplay can try out the Dragon Quest Builders demo, live on the Nintendo eShop today. New DLC for Mario + Rabbidsincludes new story content starring Donkey Kong as a playable fighter this Spring. Players will be able to play with either touchscreen or traditional controls.

Super Mario Odyssey Nintendo announced an upcoming update for Super Mario Odyssey that will allow players to play as Luigi once players have ended the story.

Super Mario Odyssey will also be receiving a new game mode, a free update introducing Balloon World. The update will also add new outfits and Snapshot Mode filters.

Nintendo released a surprise Nintendo Direct presentation.

As for the software charts, Nintendo Switch begins the year in full force occupying most of the positions of the list, while PS4 contemplates a worrysome and ironic situation as the software sales don't match with the high numbers of hardware. We know that. But ads help us pay the bills.
