Luigi hosts Balloon World, where you're given 30 seconds to hide a balloon somewhere on a stage, or find one that someone else has hidden. Players who discover lots and lots of balloons will go up in the Balloon World leaderboards. Explore a great, big world decorated like a miniature diorama in a new art style for the franchise, where each side-scrolling stage has the traditional front side as well as a flip side with different views and surprises. The update will also bring new costumes and filters for the camera, which is a nice touch for a freebie. Wave two (March 23) will add fighter Blastoise and support Pokémon Mew and Celebi. The Pokkén Tournament DX Battle Pack DLC is going on sale today for $14.99.

Ironically, the Switch version of Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 has received the lowest review scores out of all the current platforms. But Nintendo also announced that Donkey Kong will make his debut on Switch this year, with Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze releasing on May 4th.

Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition - Spring 2018 Hyrule Warriors is coming to the Switch complete with all of the DLC from the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game as well as the ability to play co-op using split Joycon. Finally, the port I may be most excited for is Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Switch, a tricky platformer made easier by the inclusion of Funky Kong when it releases on May 4th. Funky Kong is making his return, and he comes with all sorts of insane abilities.

"Hyrule Warriors" is a spin-off based on "The Legend of Zelda". Lack of news on Metroid Prime 4 or Bayonetta 3 isn't too surprising, but we also didn't get anything about Yoshi, Project Octopath Traveler or Fire Emblem.

The new DLC for "Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle" adds Donkey Kong as a playable character. The update is coming in February.
