Nintendo Switch Getting Remake of Classic DS RPG

Share

More than a decade ago Square Enix and Jupiter Corporation released The World Ends With You on the Nintendo DS to wide acclaim from gamers and a lot of positive feedback even from game journalists. There's no word yet on whether or not we'll see the Trilogy Box released outside of Japan, but we're hoping Dark Souls' global appeal has reached a point where shipping a few (thousand) Trilogy Boxes to Europe and North America makes sense.

Pokken Tournament DX is set to get some extra characters in the form of downloadable content, including Pokemon Mew and Celebi. Most games shown during the presentation were slated for a spring or summer release, though, so perhaps the game will be available within the next two quarters if development goes smoothly.

Sure, 10 million worldwide sales have probably helped out in that regard, but it's clear those outside the Nintendo bubble feel different about the Switch. The PC version of the game will run at native 4K resolution. The biggest of these is Dark Souls: Remastered, which is due out May 25 for Switch as well as PC and the other consoles.

Aces follows Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, which came to Wii U in 2015. There is also a new local multiplayer mode called CRIME.NET Local Play, that will let you set up a local game and invite friends that share the same local network. The update also brings new outfits for Mario and filters for Snapshot mode. The 2013 game Payday 2is also coming to the Switch on February 27th, complete with online cooperative gameplay.

Celeste comes from the developer of Towerfall, and is an indie action platformer coming to Switch on January 25.

New DLC for Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle will add Donkey Kong as a playable character.

The only disappointment is the lack of a Virtual Console for the Switch, a feature that can be found in the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

We'll continue to report on the Direct Mini's news as the morning progresses.
