Nintendo announces raft of new and retro titles for Switch

Nintendo announces raft of new and retro titles for Switch
From TechCrunch - January 11, 2018

The Switch is getting a bevy of new games that should appeal to a broad variety of players, Nintendo announced today in one of its Direct videos. A new Mario Tennis game, updates to Odyssey, some classics and indies, and perhaps most unexpectedly, Dark Souls: Remastered.

The deepest fan-pleaser cut has to be The World Ends With You, a quirky DS cult hit with a great soundtrack and great modern aesthetic. Many a fan has asked for a remake or port, and they are surely crying tears of delight today.

The impeccable Super Mario Odyssey gets a new competitive game mode and an appearance by the well-known plumbers too frequently ignored brother. Luigi hosts Balloon World, where youre given 30 seconds to hide a balloon somewhere on a stage, or find one that someone else has hidden. No doubt 999-star power players will find ways to put these in absurdly hard to reach areas.

Luigi also appears (alongside all the usual suspects) in the new Mario Tennis Aces, which is pretty much what youd expect. The story mode looks like itll be fun, though I doubt it will touch the fondly remembered Power Tour on GBA. (If you want a spiritual sequel to that, try Golf Story. Wrong sport, right feel.)
