"And this time the game adds the first story mode since the Mario Tennis game on Game Boy Advance, offering a new flavor of tennis gameplay, with a variety of missions and boss battles". Kirby Star Allies was previously teased as just Kirby at E3 2017, and we finally got a name for the game in a Nintendo Direct in September.

"Super Mario Odyssey", for instance, is getting a new minigame called "Balloon World".

Dark Souls: Remastered, out on May 25th, joins Skyrim and Doom as prominent third-party games getting new life on Nintendo's console.

In the meantime, if enough fans purchase The World Ends With You -Final Remix-, it could finally convince Square Enix to move forward with a sequel to the beloved RPG. It's competitive search and find with balloons, complete with online leaderboards. New DLC for Mario + Rabbidsincludes new story content starring Donkey Kong as a playable fighter this Spring. No exact release date was given for the DLC, but it will be out sometime this spring.

The original designation was granted to El Salvadorans in the U.S.in 2001 after a series of earthquakes. Mario Diaz-Balart quickly released a statement in "strong disagreement" with the administration.

Starbreeze Studio's Payday 2 was also featured in the Nintendo Direct Mini.

"Hyrule Warriors" - a third-person action game set in the world of "The Legend of Zelda", but more focused on action than narrative - is another example of Nintendo resurfacing games from its Wii U library on the Switch. She's pretty cool too, as she utilized an LED mask that can change its look on the whim.

Speaking of Mario, there's a free update coming to Odyssey in February. You will also be able to play with any friend anytime. Fighting game fans won't get new full games, but they will get the odd SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy this summer and revived 16-bit ACA NEOGEO Art of Fighting today on the Nintendo eShop.

The Nintendo Direct had a very different trailer, detailing more of the gameplay and mechanics. Like previous games in the franchise, "Tropical Freeze" puts Donkey Kong and the rest of his family through a perilous adventure across dozens of gorgeous, brilliantly crafted 2D levels. This version of the game will also include the ability to play as Funky Kong, according to Eurogamer.
