Mario Tennis Aces Announced for Nintendo Switch

14 January 2018

Okay, so let's just go ahead and rip the band-aid right off and get the most obvious one out of the way first.

Demos!Kirby: Battle Royale and Dragon Quest Builders both have demos now live on the Nintendo e-Shop today.

Nintendo finalized their video by announcing Dark Souls will be remastered and brought to the Nintendo Switch on May 25th. In addition to a new chapter of the Mario Tennis series, it's also releasing action RPG The World Ends with You: Final Remix, JRPG Ys VIII, fighting game SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, and Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze. And not just the classics, 3DS, Wii, and Wii U games either. The groovy surfer known as Funky Kong can double jump, hover, perform infinite rolls and even perform infinite underwater corkscrews.

"The Switch's success rests on some first-party franchise games of fantastic quality, improved relations with third-parties, and a well-executed vision for creating a platform that straddles TV and handheld gaming", noted IHS Markit's Bailey.

Mario Tennis Aces, meanwhile, will be available on Nintendo Switch this spring.

New outfits from Breath of the Wild for Link and Zelda will be included.
