Mario Tennis Aces smashes on to Nintendo Switch this Spring

Mario Tennis Aces smashes on to Nintendo Switch this Spring

One of the Wii U's more divisive games, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is headed to Nintendo Switch. Nintendo says the mode will add "a variety of missions, boss battles and more".

The previously announced Switch version of PAYDAY 2 will include a new character named Joy, and will release on February 27.

Nintendo held an early morning Nintendo Direct Mini, and we've got the whole thing for you to watch right here. The game will incorporate an exclusive character for the Nintendo Switch version. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze arrives on Switch on May 4.

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.

YS VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is an epic RPG that was previously released on PS4, but will come to the Switch this summer. From Software's painfully hard and atmospheric RPG will be coming to a Nintendo console for the first time on May 25th. As your crew progresses the jobs become bigger, better and more rewarding, using the money that you earn to customise your character with new skill sets and to kit them out with better guns and gear.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is getting new downloadable content, and it focuses on one of Nintendo's leading characters. Before Dark Souls topped off the Direct, it was revealed that the Nintendo DS rhythm battle classic, The World Ends With You, will be coming to console 10 years after its original release.

You can look for Payday 2 to launch on February 27th next month. Celeste release date for the Nintendo Switch is January 25.

My personal favourite addition is a new Mario tennis game called "Mario Tennis Aces".

Funky Kong can double jump, hover, perform rolls to stay stationary in air, continually corkscrew underwater and even remains unscathed when landing in spikes.
