Nintendo has another Direct presentation yesterday to announce new games for the Switch console and for the 3DS handheld system. The biggest news from Nintendo Direct was the announcement of a new “Super Smash Bros.” game for the Switch.

New 3DS Games

Nintendo is releasing a remake of the classic GameCube title “Luigi’s Mansion” for the 3DS. Nintendo didn’t give out an exact release date, but it will arrive sometime in 2018. The game comes with a new feature that displays the mansion map on the bottom screen. Another new feature is a new game mode called Boss Rush.

Another remake heading for the 3DS is “Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story + Bowser Jr.’s Journey.” The game will be released in 2019. The game comes with new features that allow users to switch between Mario and Luigi and allow players to take control of Bowser.

“Dillon’s Dead Heat Breakers” is a new entry into the game series for the 3DS and is scheduled to arrive on May 24. A demo for the game will be available on May 10. The game will allow players to use their Mii characters as a support gunner, according to GameSpot.

“Warioware Gold” is also heading to the 3DS on Aug. 3. This title is a collection of 300 microgames. “Warioware Gold” features new and old mini-games that can take advantage of the 3DS’ hardware features.

New Nintendo Switch Games & Updates

The most important announcement was the new “Super Smash Bros.” game for the Switch. Nintendo even released a short teaser trailer for the upcoming game featuring Inklings from “Splatoon,” Link from the “The Legend of Zelda,” and Mario. Nintendo didn’t give an exact release date for the new “Super Smash Bros.,” but it will be released in 2018.

Nintendo also announced the Ver. 3.0 update for “Splatoon 2,” which is scheduled to arrive in April. The update will include new gear, stages and playable characters. Nintendo will also be releasing the first paid DLC expansion for “Splatoon 2” this summer and it includes new single-player levels.

“South Park: The Fractured But Whole” will arrive for the Nintendo Switch on April 24. This version of the game won’t include the game’s DLCs, but players will have the option to purchase them individually or as a bundle.

For the month of May, Nintendo is releasing “Little Nightmares: Complete Edition” and “Hyrule Warrior: Definitive Edition” on May 18, while a new “Dark Souls” Amiibo figure will be available on May 25. Nintendo also announced that a network test beta for “Dark Souls Remastered” will commence sometime before the game’s launch on May 25.

Coming on June 8 is “Sushi Striker: The Way of the Sushido.” The new game will be available for both the Switch and the 3DS. “Sushi Striker: The Way of the Sushido” is an action game where players will have to match colored plates and sushis in order to throw them onto opponents, according to Heavy. “Mario Tennis Aces” will also be released on June 22. During the Nintendo Direct presentation, the company shared a short video detailing some of the basic gameplay features of the upcoming game.

The month of July is a pretty big deal for the Switch. Nintendo announced that “Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy” is heading to the Switch on July 10. The game was a huge hit last year when it was exclusively released for the PS4. “Octopath Traveler” and “Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker” will both be released on July 13.

“Okami HD” and “Travis Strikes Again: no More Heroes” are also heading to the Nintendo Switch this year, but both titles don’t have exact release dates yet. Meanwhile, the indie game “Undertable” has also been confirmed for the Switch, but Nintendo didn’t say if it will be out this year or in 2019.
