Mario Tennis Aces

Nintendo’s got a bunch of new games coming to its wildly popular Switch console in 2018.

Better yet: The Japanese gaming giant just revealed several entirely new games in a “Nintendo Direct” video presentation on Thursday.

More than just a new “Mario Tennis” game, Nintendo debuted a gaggle of new games headed to the Switch this year. Here’s everything we know!

1. “Kirby Star Allies” is coming out on March 16

The latest entry in the long-running, beloved side-scrolling franchise starring Kirby is arriving on the Nintendo Switch in short order: “Kirby Star Allies” launches on March 16.

The new game, like its predecessors, stars Kirby — a pink puff who can absorb powers from his enemies — as he progresses through a breezy, lightly challenging fantasy world. In “Star Allies,” you can team up with up to three other players to take on levels. You can also play it alone, of course.

2. A new “Mario Tennis” game, called “Mario Tennis Aces,” is coming this spring.

Nintendo’s continuing to produce a steady beat of games starring Mario for the Switch, with “Mario Tennis Aces” being the latest. The game also stars a large cast of other Mushroom Kingdom favorites, like Luigi and Wario, and this new entry even has a story mode of sorts.

Since the game was only just debuted on Thursday morning, we only have a limited amount of information about it thus far. Check out the bit about it from Thursday’s Nintendo Direct video right here:
