Thanks Nintendo for the latest announcements.

Other rumours suggest Microsoft is planning to release a new game in the Forza Horizon series.

To date, upwards of two-thirds of Switch console owners have bought Super Mario Odyssey, and more than 50 percent of have bought both Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild.

The final announcement of the Mini Direct, and probably the largest, is the confirmation of the rumored Dark Souls coming to Nintendo Switch.

Runner3 is the latest entry in the Bit.Trip series.

We'll also see some new indies make their way to the Nintendo Switch.

It was first released on the Nintendo DS in 2008, and instantly became a cult hit.

"When the main character Neku suddenly encounters the mysterious girl Shiki, he gets caught up in a deadly game".

The remastered port will arrive for the Switch on May 25 worldwide.

In tandem with what we know is on the way, yesterday's Direct gave us a slightly clearer idea of what to expect on Switch in 2018. In today's Nintendo Direct video, the company announced new Kirby and Mario Tennis games headed to the console, plus a couple indie games and re-releases. The game will feature a variety of missions and boss battles. Specifically, the trailer noted that players will need to pay more attention to their opponent's shot selection and positioning in order to beat them. Payday 2 was initially released back in 2013 for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.

It's the "ultimate version" of the action game set in the Zelda universe.

Earlier this week there was all kinds of buzz surrounding Nintendo planning a surprise Nintendo Direct.

Up to four friends co-operate on each heist, and as the crew progresses the heists gets bigger, better and more rewarding.

This one is going to be a graphics-rich version of The World Ends With You game.

We also learned that a new Mario Tennis game is on the way. On Switch, it can be played using either the Joy-Con controllers or the touch screen.

Nintendo hasn't given a firm release date for Aces, but has said it will launch in Spring 2018 exclusively on Nintendo Switch. New content for a 10-year-old game?

A Nintendo Switch console costs $299.99. The game is highly challenging but thankfully, there will be a dedicated game mode for beginners. This new character has some unique styles and abilities with a amusing twist in the platforming gameplay. "Our results demonstrate our customers' enthusiastic response to new products and our ability to execute on strategically targeted promotions". A page for the remake is up on Amazon here; though pre-orders aren't active, you can request to receive an email when they do go live.
