Adjust Comment Print

The Switch port of Dragon Quest Builders, the Dragon Quest-themed take on Minecraft, has a demo available today. No release date was given for the former Radio Free Nintendo Retroactive title.

Overkill Software's "Payday 2" is being ported for the Nintendo Switch and it will arrive for the console on February 27. In TV mode, it will run at 30 FPS in 1080p resolution.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition - This game has already seen releases on both the Wii U and 3DS, but this Switch port promises to be the most complete version, boasting all 29 characters, every piece of DLC and new character outfits for Link and Zelda based on Breath of the Wild.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will also be rereleasing for the Nintendo Switch. It features the story of Neku, an antisocial boy that lost consciousness and suddenly woke up to find that he was involved in a game.

Super Mario Odyssey will be getting a free update with Luigi's Balloon World, online competitive modes will be added. Other players will then have to race to find these hidden balloons.

Other rumours suggest Microsoft is planning to release a new game in the Forza Horizon series. That seems to be what this new story mode is going for, but it also seems that this particular mode might abandon the tennis academy setting of previous Mario Tennis stories in favor of something a little wackier.

Super Mario Odyssey and Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle fans have some new content to look forward to as well. Instead, he'll be the host of Luigi's Balloon World, a name for a couple of new connected modes in the DLC. She's a computer hacker who wears a customizable LED mask! The Battle Pack is available for purchase now on the Nintendo eShop for $14.99.

The first set will include Aegislash as a playable character and Mega Rayquaza and Mimikyuu as support characters. Wave two (March 23) will add fighter Blastoise and support Pokémon Mew and Celebi.

A new listing on the Brazilian ratings board suggests that a new Forza game is in development. Using Water and Ice together, for example, creates an Icicle Lance. Co-op friends can also combine their abilities to produce new effects. They include SNK HEROINES: Tag Team Frenzy, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, PayDay 2, Celeste, and Fe. The Switch is a ideal fit for the series and the timing seems to be right given it's been almost six years since the last entry in the main series.

"The World Ends With You Final Remix" is one of the several titles that will be released for Nintendo Switch this year. "The World Ends With You Final Remix" will reportedly retain these touch controls.

When the Switch launched last March, we called it an "incredible well-made device" in our review, but admitted that it was still incomplete from a software standpoint. The user, Puertorock77, presumed that given that Greenberg didn't state that Xbox had won December, it means either the PS4 or Nintendo Switch won.

Celeste is a pixelated platformer that feels a bit like a mix between Towerfall and Super Meat Boy. It's the first time the Dark Souls franchise is coming to a Nintendo platform.

Fe is coming to Switch on February 16th.
