There was a Nintendo Direct Event held earlier this week and it was jam packed with a load of news to start of the new year.
Though one of the Wii U's lesser-known first-party titles, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker was a puzzle game that was absolutely worth the $20 asking price. The news from this Nintendo Direct Mini may not have been a record-breaker in excitement, but it will at least serve to whet appetites until more news is revealed. Wave 1 of the Battle Pack contains Battle Pokémon Aegislash and a new Support Pokémon Set featuring Mega Rayquaza and Mimikyu.
Imagination is the key, as you enter a magical storybook land full of mystery and wonder, unusual creatures and enigmatic puzzles. Pokkén Tournament DX will be receiving two new waves of content in the coming months, with the first hitting January 31, and the second coming March 23. New additions from the Wii-U include Hyrule Warriors and Donkey Kong Country Freeze. FIFA 18 on Switch has been described by EA as being a "custom-version", which sits somewhere in between the current-gen and last-gen iterations. We've seen support from some pretty high profile developers like Bethesda with the release of Doom and Skyrim, and Capcom with Resident Evil Revelations on Switch.
In tandem with what we know is on the way, yesterday's Direct gave us a slightly clearer idea of what to expect on Switch in 2018. This feature will include the Atorius of the Abyss DLC, as well as "improved framerate and resolution".
Another console exclusive (this time solely for the PS4) is Naughty Dog's The Last Of Us Part 2.
Super Mario Odyssey will also be receiving a new game mode, a free update introducing Balloon World.
The game's story is set in modern-day Japan. Nintendo is going to need something to sell players on its paid online service, and what better way to do that than by bringing Super Mario Maker over from the Wii U?
Some non-Nintendo developed titles are planned to come to the Switch in 2018 as well.
Nintendo will also add three new outfits to the game: Sunshine Shades, a Musician Hat, and Knight Armor.
There's no word on a solid release date, though, but it'll be available sometime this year.
This is in spite of the fact that FIFA 18 only sold a mediocre 73,000 units in France.
Towerfall Ascension developer Matt Makes Games announced that its upcoming platfomer Celeste will be released on Nintendo Switch on January 25.
All of these games predict a bright future for the Switch.
