No further details were mentioned, and no release date, just that it will be released this year. The paid Deluxe Battle Pack DLC is now available for purchase and the content will be released in two phases. The first wave of new characters are set to arrive on January 31 and will include Aegislash as a battle character, while Mega Rayquaza and Mimikyu joins the game as the super set of characters.

Kirby Star Allies was announced back at E3.

In the trailer, two new Copy Abilities were shown. Co-op friends can also combine their abilities to produce new effects.

A Fire Emblem game is expected to arrive on the Switch in 2018. The press release also revealed that more than 60 percent of Nintendo Switch owners in the US have Super Mario Odyssey installed while over 55 percent own The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is scheduled to come out this Autumn 2018. The game port will be enhanced "with HD visuals", and its story has been expanded with the addition of a new epilogue.

The Switch's success in December isn't exactly surprising, especially since the console was named the best-selling console of 2017. Meanwhile, the SNK fighting game spin-off, "SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy", will also be available for Nintendo's console later this summer.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will also be getting a new story update where players will be able to take control of Donkey Kong.

Payday 2 - February 27thFans looking for some more mature titles on the Switch have been looking forward to this one, and it finally has a release date. Not only does it incorporate some elements of open world exploration, it introduced a new mechanic - a sentient hat that possesses different kinds of objects and enemies - that totally reinvented Mario and upended the conventional 3D platformer formula, taking it to new directions.

That is Joy, a Japanese computer whiz that wears a custom LED light mask that changes her appearance as she sees fit. The first one is called the Hide It mode, which tasks players to find the flawless, stealthiest place to hide a balloon in just 30 seconds. Celeste will be releasing on the 25th of January. Super Mario Odyssey is adding free update titled Luigi's Balloon World where players will essentially play hide-and-seek in the already available worlds from the game, it'll release in February with an update that adds costumes and snapshot filters into the game.
