Kirby Star Allies Gets Nintendo Switch Release Date

Kirby Star Allies Gets Nintendo Switch Release Date Kirby Star Allies Gets Nintendo Switch Release Date

Between teasing posts and some cryptic tweets, it seemed that Nintendo was certainly up to something. This reveal has been rumored for a while, and now we know the punishing action RPG is hitting the Switch before summer.

Nintendo surprised this morning with the release of a Nintendo Direct mini broadcast.

Rather than a full Direct stream, this one ran at around 15 minutes but the information came fast and furious.

The Direct opens the announcement of a Switch port of The World Ends With You, a Square Enix JRPG - not one of their largest brands, but a highly-respected title that has a history on Nintendo platforms nonetheless. PayDay 2 will launch on Switch on February 27, 2018. There will be a variety of missions, boss battles and more.

That wasn't all, of course.

Nintendo's slate of re-releases - including The World Ends with You and Tropical Freeze - will include new content. The World Ends with You, first released in North America in 2008 on Nintendo DS, is set in a highly stylized, modern-day Japan.

Another classic title, Hyrule Warriors, is being released in an Ultimate version for the Switch this spring.

Along with the original characters Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains, PayDay 2 on Switch comes with a character called Joy who's initially releasing only on Nintendo Switch. You've seen him in swim shorts and a poncho in Odyssey, now it's tennis whites.

Speaking of Mario, there's a free update coming to Odyssey in February. It's a third-person action game that forces players to carefully choose every action, lest they die over and over (and over and over) at the hands of even the most mundane enemies. Donkey Kong will swing onto Switch on May 4. Considering that the primary criticisms of that game revolved around its lack of content and innovations, we'd say that the quick reveal of Mario Tennis Ace's story mode suggests that Nintendo is aware of what went wrong and is willing to fix it.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will also be rereleasing for the Nintendo Switch. The game will include the base game, as well as a new "beginner-friendly" mode that lets players enjoy the game as Funky Kong.
