EA to 'double down' on Switch this year — Nintendo France

Here's what Nintendo showed today, from release dates for things we already knew about to a few new surprises.

The newest playable character in Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is the leader of the bunch humself - Donkey Kong.

The World Ends With You: Final Remix will include the full original game as well as a new scenario.

This one year of exclusives - a shortened launch year, no less - was arguably better than every year of the Wii U's life span combined. But Lavoué's comments are promising for EA fans that want to see more FIFA on the Nintendo Switch, at the very least. These cannot be purchased separately. New additions include Mew and Celebi. The game will run on the Nintendo Switch's portable mode as well as the docked mode to be played on home TV screens. The game will is released on March 16. Nintendo's monkey will be able to use a boomerang banana to bash baddies. "Mario Tennis Aces" is scheduled to be released during spring this year. Definitive Edition, Payday 2, and Kirby Star Allies leading the pack. The update also brings new outfits for Mario and filters for Snapshot mode.

Players take on the role of Neku Sakuraba who ends up meeting up with Shiki Misaki, as the duo attempt to play through a deadly game where Neku must complete specific tasks in order to progress through the challenges laid out before him. There will be plenty to do in Mario Tennis Aces from missions to boss battles and more. However, Managing Director Philippe Lavoué insists that release was just a "test case" for the publisher EA and that it will be "doubling down" as the World Cup comes closer.

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. Tag Team Frenzy has new moves called Dream Finishes, which seem to be the only way to defeat an opponent after most of their health is gone.

Pokken Tournament DX will be getting new DLC characters.

While the lack of online infrastructure is frustrating, the focus on filling up the eShop has paid off. If you've been waiting to praise the sun on the go, now is your chance.

Mirosoft's Xbox One console may have outsold Sony's PlayStation 4 console in the US in December 2017, according to an unpublished report by market researching firm NPD Group. Dark Souls: Remastered will be available on May 25th.
