Nintendo Switch will soon have more titles available for players. Nintendo has seen a lot of success with some of its previous releases for the Switch—particularly Super Mario Odyssey. You might remember that Odyssey became the fastest selling Mario game released in the U.S. It was also a critical hit and fan favorite.
Now fans can anticipate more new games for the device, plus they can expect more to come for Odyssey. According to TechCrunch, quite a few new titles are coming, and more content is being added for Odyssey.
New content being added to Super Mario Odyssey includes the addition of a competitive game mode, plus Balloon World hosted by Luigi, which has players hide balloons or try to find balloons that have been hidden.
Some of the new titles announced for release are unsurprising, though there are some titles that may be a little unexpected. Rolling Stone lists all of the titles mentioned in Nintendo’s announcement. Games like Mario Tennis Aces, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Kirby Star Allies, and Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition may come as no surprise in the announcement. Other games include The World Ends with You: Final Remix, SNK HEROINES ~Tag Team Frenzy~, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, PAYDAY 2, Fe, and Celeste.
Perhaps the only really surprising announcement is the inclusion of Dark Souls: Remastered. Rolling Stone notes that the Dark Souls games have never before been released for a Nintendo console. Forbes also mentions that Dark Souls: Remastered is coming for more than just the Switch—it’s also coming to Xbox One, Xbox One X, Playstation 4, Playstation 4 Pro, and PC. Not only will the graphics look better, there will be some updates to the gameplay itself. Of course, Forbes’ article also questions how Dark Souls will actually work on the Switch, given how the gameplay works. It’s unclear at this point whether there will be any differences in how the game works on the Switch to accommodate the on-the-go nature of Nintendo’s console.
