Nintendo Direct Mini January 2018: Every Nintendo Switch Game Announced

11 January 2018

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

The Nintendo Switch has turned out to be a victor for the company. (Sorry, no cross compatibility here.) When it comes to controls, the game will be utilizing the Switch's touchscreen for scrolling through menus and the HD Rumble from Joy-Cons to further enhance the experience.

YS VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is an epic RPG that was previously released on PS4, but will come to the Switch this summer. Publisher Bandai Namco also used this event to reveal Dark Souls: Remastered, which is an updated take on the 2011 PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 combat-heavy RPGs that is due out May 25. Mario Tennis Aces' story mode doesn't look quite as deep, but it's a welcome addition following the disappointingly bare bones Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash on the Wii U. No word yet on who's developing Mario Tennis Aces, but it's probably Camelot Software (they've done every game in the series to date). Players worldwide will be ranked online.

Hyrule Warriors: Definite Edition will include all of the content from the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the epic action game, but this edition for Nintendo Switch, launching in the Spring, will include outfits for Link and Zelda based on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game also introduces improved resolution and other visual enhancements, and it also increases the multiplayer count to six players, according to Polygon.
