There was a Nintendo Direct Event held earlier this week and it was jam packed with a load of news to start of the new year.
However, Sony is still winning eighth gen, and the PS4 has already moved almost 74 million total units since 2013, so it's not like they have to keep moving big numbers month in and month out.
EA spent a good chunk of past year constantly reiterating that it's looking to see how the Switch would perform before fully committing and Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 would serve as a test drive of sorts.
One of the Switch's main attractions is that it is a compact system that can be played at home or on the go. Offering both action RPG goodness and tag-team fighting respectively, the titles are on the smaller side of importance but will be good holdovers as we wait for SMT V or Octopath Traveler.
Super Mario Odyssey has proved to be a blockbuster on Nintendo Switch. More details regarding those will be expected at E3 in June at the latest. In truth, we'll probably see both games on the Switch eventually, but if we can only have one, Super Mario 3D World should be it thanks to its flawless blend of classic Mario stages and 3D Mario platforming. The game has yet to receive a release window, but Nintendo's love for the series is clearly visible as the company has confirmed the arrival of the first two games Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 on Nintendo Switch.
Despite the usual content, "MTA" will feature a story mode starring Mario alongside its more competitive modes. "This was a way to do it". In April, we got Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
Mario Tennis was first introduced on the Nintendo 64. The game was already shown last June when it only had a working title.
The last game given a definitive date was Wii U port Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze which has been set a release date of 4 May.
Even if you've never played the delightful "Donkey Kong Country" series, it's easy to jump right in to "Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze". Final Remix, due on Switch later this year, and Dark Souls Remastered releasing on Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC this May led the announcements.
Yet while a cigar is sometimes just a cigar, it was pretty clear NoA was messing with the world, and its unceremonious dropping of a Direct Mini at 6 a.m. PST sent the masses scattering.
The platforming adventure game will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch digitally on February 16th.
Other questions remain as well, Baily noted. Nintendo is going to need something to sell players on its paid online service, and what better way to do that than by bringing Super Mario Maker over from the Wii U? "And how does it plan to position messaging around the console in order to broaden its audience?" It's less than 15 minutes but packed with information about upcoming Switch games and DLC, as well as one major new game announcement.
Despite being weaker in hardware specs it was Nintendo Switch which took the top spot yet again backed by it's awesome software. "Nintendo is definitely back".
