Dark Souls, Donkey Kong Country lead a wave of Nintendo Switch ports

The biggest of these is Dark Souls: Remastered, which is due out May 25 for Switch as well as PC and the other consoles.

It's easy to get disappointed that Nintendo didn't reveal a bunch of new games during this latest Direct, but I wouldn't freak out and start worrying that Nintendo is running out of ideas.

"A new Mario Tennis game is bringing a new level of skill and competition to Nintendo Switch". The game will feature your favorite Mario characters sporting tennis outfits, and include a full story mode.

Kirby Star Allies is scheduled for launch on 16 March.

Praise the sun and prepare to die, because From Software is remastering the original Dark Souls for a re-release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

In an interview with French publication Les Numériques, Nintendo France Managing Director Philippe Lavoué stated that the company isn't now researching the addition of 4K or VR to the Switch.

You can now take one of the most infamously hard experience of the last generation with you wherever you go. 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.

Rumored to be taking place on January 10, fans were waiting eagerly for Nintendo to make some kind of announcement.

Continuing the trend of bringing more adult games to the Switch, it's been revealed that PayDay 2 is coming to Switch on February 27. No "Hey folks, new Nintendo Direct coming later this week", or even a "We'll be announcing some stuff soon".

The biggest third party announcement is that the first Dark Souls video game is getting remastered. You could essentially think of these balloons as an infinite number of power moons to search for while also including leaderboards to give you extra incentive to play the mode frequently.

The Wii U platformer Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is coming to the Switch with Funky Kong as a new playable character. No exact release date has been given yet, but the game will arrive this spring. While Sony and Microsoft have concentrated effort towards 4K support, Nintendo is just fine with the Switch maxing out at 1080p. They also announced that the game will be releasing on March 16th. These remasters will include not only updated graphics but "rebuilt lighting and SFX similar to Dark Souls 3". Who knew? EA actually can still make games for gamers that doesn't appear to be trying to pull any shady business on them.
