Xbox One Sold More Than PS4 in December, Switch Surpasses Overall Sales

14 January 2018

This is just one in a slew of positive news coming for the Nintendo Switch console with it also having recently outsold both its competitors, Sony's PlayStation and Microsoft's Xbox One, in December a year ago in the United States. One of the titles that fits the bill is Overkill Software's Payday 2. Case in point: Nintendo France's managing director stressed the EA will most likely "double down" on the Switch this year with the 2018 World Cup on its way. First off, Nintendo's 2014 Wii U hit Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is coming to the Switch on May 4. The game is being given the subtitle Final Remix and was a vague 2018 release window. Though third-parties largely ignored the Wii U, Nintendo put out some good games for it, so here are five more Wii U games Nintendo should port over next.

Nintendo Switch was among the more innovative console that came out past year during March. People will be able to pick up and play Kirby Star Allies on March 16, 2018.

The reboot of the OG Xbox Duke controller will be released in March. "And this time the game adds the first story mode since the Mario Tennis game on Game Boy Advance, offering a new flavor of tennis gameplay, with a variety of missions and boss battles".

European Union urges U.S. not to withdraw from Iran nuclear deal
The country has said the missiles it tested are not made to carry nuclear warheads, saying it's nuclear program is peaceful. They will also urge Iran to continue to comply with worldwide inspectors, the diplomats said.

Aside from these two headliners, my favorite announcement of the Nintendo Direct Mini was the arrival of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze to the Switch. In Find It mode, players have the same amount of time to locate balloons hidden by other players from around the world. Nintendo didn't give a specific launch date, but assured customers that it would be released later this year. It will also be coming with a timed-exclusive playable character who has the ability to hack through any system.

There are free demos available on the Nintendo eShop for Kirby Battle Royale and Dragon Quest Builders. In fact, EA is pleased with the sales of the game across the board, and according to NoF, new announcements will be made soon. Two new games. That's it. And SNK fans have another crossover to anticipate for the summer, with the SNK HEROINES ~Tag Team Frenzy~ fighting game. Why it's so special because the new ability lets Kirby become more creative and there's one more ability called Spider that lets him trap the enemies in webs. A small press release also noted that this remaster will include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC, and offer online multiplayer for up to 6 players.
