As a nice surprise, Square Enix's hit action-RPG The World Ends With You, which originally released on the Nintendo DS in North America in 2008, is also coming to Switch in 2018. These remasters will include not only updated graphics but "rebuilt lighting and SFX similar to Dark Souls 3". This month adds Aegislash as a new battle Pokémon and Mega Rayquaza and Mimikyu as support Pokémon. Wave 2 will have Blastoise as a playable character and Support Pokémon Mew and Celebi. Both waves can be purchased right now. New content for a 10-year-old game? The much-anticipated Switch multiplayer platformer Kirby Star Allies will land on store shelves on March 16. Kirby Star Allies is all about playing with friends: yours and Kirby's. You will also be able to combine powers together in creative ways.

There are free demos available on the Nintendo eShop for Kirby Battle Royale and Dragon Quest Builders. Hyrule Warriors: "Definitive Edition includes every map, character, mission and paid DLC from both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions, plus new outfits for Link and Zelda based on The Legend of Zelda: "Breath of the Wild". Switch players will enjoy a new widescreen presentation as well. The port will also have local co-op, which can be done with the joy-cons. For the Nintendo Switch, the game will run in 1080p at 30fps in TV mode, according to Bandai Namco. The sport title will be released this spring and promises to be a multiplayer go-to game, but with a single-player story mode too. But most important of all, The World Ends With You -Final Remix- adds a brand new scenario "that gets to the heart of the story".

Once you've beaten the game and picked up this free update, you'll be able to play a new mode called Luigi's Balloon World.
