Since the Direct appeared this morning, your friends at Mammoth Gamers have summarized the biggest stories to come out.

The Direct Mini ended with this rumored port. It will offer touch screen controls as well as the Joy Con. 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.

Two new DLC waves are in the works for the Switch version of Pokken Tournament that adds new fighters and support Pokemon. The three characters listed will be in Wave 1 on January 31, while Blastoise (Battle), Celebi (Support), and Mew (Support) will be in Wave 2 on March 23. Both waves can be purchased right now.

There were also updates and DLCs announced for previously released games.

A flurry of new in-game abilities has been revealed for Kirby Star Allies. You will also be able to combine powers together in creative ways. The demo can be downloaded from the eShop and played docked or portably.

This action game set in the Zelda universe takes all the characters, maps, and missions from its Wii U and 3DS outings complete with all its paid downloadable content. Notable for both games is that they are exclusive to the Switch, unlike most blockbuster video game titles, which are mutliplatform. Players can also enjoy two-player cooperative play with separate Joy-Cons. The first set will be released on January 31st.

Nintendo Switch and PS4 enter the new year unsurprisingly as the top 2 gaming platforms in Japan, with the hybrid console being the clear leader, as it was at the end of 2017, but Sony's platform also showing that it can also pull healthy figures.

The game comes from Camelot, the longtime developer behind the Mario Tennis franchise. This free online addition will challenge players to find and hide balloons within the game's worlds, plus the update will add new costumes for Mario and fresh filters for the Snapshot mode. The story mode will have players traveling across the Mushroom Kingdom participating in matches, minigames, and boss battles. Super Mario Odyssey, which has only been on shelves since October, has already sold more than 3.6 million copies.

A free update is coming to Super Mario Odyssey, and it's filled with balloons. It's a new competitive mode that can be accessed by speaking to Luigi in New Donk City.
