Nintendo already has an incredible list of first-party and third-party titles to keep Nintendo Switch users engaged. On Thursday, the company held a Nintendo Direct presentation to announce a bunch of exciting games coming to the Switch this year.
Nintendo of America’s SVP of Sales and Marketing said in a statement that people who have received Nintendo Switch as a holiday gift or are getting ready to join the Switch community are going to have a lot of fun with new games. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular Nintendo Switch games the Japanese company announced during the Direct presentation.
Dark Souls: Remastered
Set to release on May 25, the Dark Souls: Remastered is an updated version of the genre-defining action role-playing classic. It’s the first time the Dark Souls franchise is coming to a Nintendo platform.
The company promises an improved resolution and frame rate along with the Artorias of the Abyss DLC for an “exhilarating return to Lordran.” Many gamers have criticized Nintendo for not offering great third-party support. The Dark Souls seems to be the company’s response to them.
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
This title is releasing on May 4th. Donkey Kong is a Wii U classic, to which Nintendo has added a new character Funky Kong as well as a beginner-friendly mode. It offers all the fun and challenges of the original title, allowing you to enjoy the adventure as Funky Kong. The simian Funky Kong can double jump, hover, perform infinite rolls and even infinite underwater corkscrews.
