The World Ends With You returns remixed on Nintendo Switch

The World Ends With You returns remixed on Nintendo Switch

Luigi finally makes an appearance, but only to introduce a new mini-game: Balloon World.

Nintendo announced some new games, ports, and DLC for the Nintendo Switch on Thursday Morning. The teaser trailer for this new version of the iconic and hard title didn't show us much, but it did give us a date for its release: May 25.

The game adds a new story mode where you can fight bosses.

We can't wait to get our hands on this game when it releases for Nintendo Switch sometime in the spring.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze (May 4) - Yet another Wii U port making its way to the Switch, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is set to land on the new console in May this year.

"Super Mario Odyssey", for instance, is getting a new minigame called "Balloon World". You can even craft weapons out of your available supplies, which means a lot of tiny prisoners shanking tiny prison guards.


The fun and exciting game from Team 17, the same group who brought players the sidesplitting mayhem of The Worms series, gives a much lighter take on what it feels like to be locked up behind bars. While this doesn't mark the debut of such a mode in an "MT" game - the honor goes to "Mario Tennis Power Tour" for the Game Boy Advance - it's a first for a Nintendo console outing. It's Nintendo's big release ahead of Easter 2018, so there's a lot riding on it.

Third-party developers shied away from the Wii U, but can't wait to get their games on the Switch.

The Jan Nintendo Direct Mini also introduced Ys VIII: Lacrimosa Of DANA, an action RPG with similarities to Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

One of the most-anticipated Nintendo Switch exclusive games for 2018 is Hyrule Warriors.

In DLC news, Donkey Kong will be coming to the excellent strategic-shooter Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle as a new hero and with his own campaign set in a new world. We're also quite thrilled to see Nintendo return to Mario Tennis so quickly after 2015's Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash was met with an overwhelmingly negative reaction.
