With no word on the now confirmed Metroid Prime 4 and Pokemon Switch title, many fans are beginning speculate that Nintendo is not yet done with its Nintendo Directs for January. Since there are two new hardware launches past year, it is expected to be one of the biggest Holiday period in term of console and games sold, as seen by the success of the Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. The character will also be joining Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, with the trailer showing DK pulling off a fastball special and tossing Rabbid Peach into the stratosphere in his big monkey arms.
Nintendo also announced a new Mario sport game called "Mario Tennis Aces", which is scheduled to arrive this spring.
This is just one in a slew of positive news coming for the Nintendo Switch console with it also having recently outsold both its competitors, Sony's PlayStation and Microsoft's Xbox One, in December past year in the United States. What was your favorite of today's announcements? TWEWY has been critically acclaimed for its innovative battle system and is well-loved by many fans of the franchise.
"The biggest announcement that Nintendo made was that 'Super Mario Odyssey" is getting a free update in February. Another platformer, Matt Makes Games' Celeste, will let you climb unsafe mountains on February 27. Players will be able to go to Balloon World by talking to Luigi who can be found on top of a skyscraper in New Donk City, according to GameSpot. The Switch is not going to turn into a dumping ground for games that came out on the Xbox 360 or Wii U four or five years ago. It will have standard tennis gameplay, plus a story mode that offers extra challenges and boss battles.
The DS version of the game utilized the console's unique features, such as shouting through the microphone, performing motions on the touchscreen, so it will be interesting to see what the Switch version of the game will be bringing to the table. Two new games. That's it.
Compare that to Switch's current maximum of 32GB and you can see the limitations Nintendo has to play with.
How these issues will be resolved will fall largely into the wait-and-see category, but as the Switch appears to have strong third-party support, 2018 could be another banner year for Nintendo's hit console.
