New Switch ports and video games announced in Nintendo Direct

News Nintendo Switch Nintendo Kirby Star Allies

Nintendo DS action-rhythm-RPG The World Ends with You: Final Remix is coming to Nintendo Switch later this year. The demo will take you through the first chapter of the game.

Ys VIII launched on PS4 and Vita a year ago and is the first entry in the series in almost a decade.

Pokken Tournament DX is getting a new DLC Battle Pack, which will be released in two waves.

"It's not going to be representative of the company's full-year plans for the Switch, especially given the nature of the titles revealed", he told TechNewsWorld. Rather, the overwhelming third-party support is what will keep the Switch afloat as Nintendo reloads with new exclusive titles like Kirby Star Allies, Mario Tennis Aces and Yoshi.

The new Artist ability lets Kirby unleash his creativity, while the new Spider ability lets him ensnare enemies in webs. You will also be able to combine powers together in creative ways.

A demo for the Dragon Quest Builders Demo is now available on Nintendo Switch and it will be released by the end of this month. The demo can be downloaded from the eShop and played docked or portably. Gamers that loved, or missed out on, Hyrule Warriors can return on the Switch with Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition later this Spring. And game design legend Ken Levine examines how The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild tore up the rulebook to reinvent the franchise.

Tropical Freeze will still be playable either single-player or via local co-op.

Aces follows Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, which came to Wii U in 2015.

What's Activision Blizzard Incorporated (NASDAQ:ATVI) Upside After This Short Interest Decrease?
It turned negative, as 4 investors sold NBN shares while 18 reduced holdings. 114 funds opened positions while 708 raised stakes. Uss Investment Management Ltd increased Public Storage (NYSE:PSA) stake by 8,000 shares to 35,200 valued at $7.53M in 2017Q3.

The fun and exciting game from Team 17, the same group who brought players the sidesplitting mayhem of The Worms series, gives a much lighter take on what it feels like to be locked up behind bars. He went on to say in a subsequent tweet that according to NPD data, Xbox One outsold PlayStation 4 in December while "Nintendo also had a great month as Switch had most overall units".

Super Mario Odyssey has proved to be a blockbuster on Nintendo Switch.

Free DLC will be heading to Super Mario Odyssey in the form of a mini-game called Balloon World. While Balloon World sounds like a whole new universe, that's not the case. The game thrusts players into the geometric world of Fe with very little guidance or instruction. In the video, he is shown using a banana as a boomerang and fighting it what appears to be a new jungle location. The best thing about Nintendo Switch is that it can be used as a home console and also as a handheld console, so expectations from a new Fire Emblem game are obviously high.

Anime-minded fans got some nuggets, with a port of Ys VIII and the new title SNK Heroines, both courtesy of NIS America.

Nintendo will also add three new outfits to the game: Sunshine Shades, a Musician Hat, and Knight Armor.

Nintendo seems more interested in playing up the Switch's strengths, namely portability, and a unique software library.

Coming on Xbox One X, the launch of console received a good reception from the market, Microsoft pitched it as the most powerful console available, and this boosted the sale.
