Mario Tennis Aces Nintendo also announced Mario Tennis Aces at Nintendo Direct Moni 2018. Both experiences will be privy to an improved resolution and framerate, which'd be a much needed improvement from the original game. As a curiosity, Media Create has stopped reporting sales numbers for Wii U and PS3, which had a merely testimonial presence in the charts during 2017. The Switch is also getting a port of the action RPG Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana this summer, which came out on the PlayStation Vita in 2016. The last game, called "Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash" was launched on the Wii U in late 2016, but received mixed reviews from critics due to a lack of content, which was considered unorthodox for an entry in the franchise. Fe release date for the Nintendo Switch is February 16.

Funky has a host of new abilities that combine all of the other Kong's abilities into one character, including double jumping, hovering, and infinite rolling. This time, there's a story mode complete with missions and boss battles.

It's a ladies-only affair with SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy.

Going back to the Nintendo DS, it announced that The World Ends With You will be getting a re-release on the Switch.
