However, some of you might have missed all the Nintendo Switch announcements made by Nintendo at Nintendo Direct Moni 2018, so we will be listing all the games that were announced for Switch at the event so that you can keep track of them. Payday 2 will be launching on the 27th of February. So too, is the game's new battle pack, which adds Aegislash (who?) and Blastoise (yes, please!) to the game's list of fighters.

Nintendo wants attention to be on the Switch, constantly. If you didn't pick up Ys VIII on PlayStation 4 in 2016, look for it this summer on Switch.

The video teaser by Nintendo also features new game contents for other Super Mario titles like "Super Mario Odyssey" and "Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle". This console generation, it seems like Nintendo is bypassing the fight against Sony and Microsoft altogether, and is instead offering a product that's attractive even if you already own one of its competitor's consoles. The Switch version of Dark Souls will be include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC and will have improved frame rate and resolution. Unfortunately, it's only a minigame with leaderboards, but Nintendo knows their audience: "It's like a new form of objective-based speedrunning!" as the announcer described it in the Direct video.
