Nintendo’s latest Direct was full of exciting new content all geared up to come to Nintendo Switch. With more than a handful of new trailers released, it’s hard to keep on top of all the new announcements.

Here’s a recap of the entire direct, and all the new trailers for your viewing pleasure:

Overwatch Legendary Edition

Starting the Nintendo Direct off strong with an Overwatch trailer, Nintendo announced that Blizzard’s FPS will come to Switch. The winner of over 100 Game of the Year awards, Overwatch still has a passionate player-base to this day.

Switch users will be able to play Overwatch with new tilt controls, and on a handheld for the first time ever. Overwatch Legendary Edition releases on Nintendo Switch on October 15, 2019. The game will come with a 3-month subscription to Nintendo Switch Online, which will be required to play. Sadly, the game does not come on a cartridge, so better make some space on your MicroSD card!

Luigi’s Mansion 3

A long-awaited sequel to 2013’s Luigi’s Mansion 2, this may be many player’s first experience with the iconic franchise. The new trailer for Luigi’s Mansion 3 shows off several new floors of the haunted hotel in which the game takes place. Every floor has a unique theme, making for a range of interesting level designs.

The trailer also revealed a new party mode for the game. In Scream Park, up to 8 players will compete in teams to vanquish ghosts, collect coins, or break targets.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 will release on October 31st, exclusively on Nintendo Switch.

Super Kirby Clash

A new free-to-start Kirby game is here, as a trailer reveals Super Kirby Clash. Up to 4 players can take control of the iconic Nintendo character and work together in the title. Players can choose a job, including Blade Hero, Hammer Lord, Doctor Healmore, or Beam Mage. Together, teams will gear up and take on over 100 quests.

Super Kirby Clash is out now, exclusively for Nintendo Switch.

Trials of Mana HD Remake

After 25 years, fans of the Mana series are getting a long-awaited remake of Trials of Mana. The third in the series, Trials of Mana will allow players to choose a team from a range of unique characters, completing different stories depending on their choice. As your team strengthens, each party member can change class and appearance to match your choices.

Trials of Mana will release April 24th on Nintendo Switch.

Return of the Obra Dinn

The next trailer was for a new puzzle game, revolving around the mystery of the vanishing ship, the Obra Dinn. Return of the Obra Dinn looks to be a beautifully animated release that is sure to attract fans of a good detective story.

In the game, players take on the role of an insurance investigator who is working to discover what happened on board. Where are the crew? And where has the ship been, these last few years?

Return of the Obra Dinn will release in the Fall of 2019 for Nintendo Switch.

Little Town Hero

In a new trailer for Game Freak’s Little Town Hero, we finally get our first look at combat. Developed by a company known for their work on the Pokemon franchise, Game Freak’s turn-based combat has seen a lot of polish. Now, players will use ‘ideas’ to combat the monsters that invade the town.

Players must move around the town during battle, meeting with allies and banding together. Toby Fox, creator of Undertale, is responsible for the game’s soundtrack.

Little Town Hero is out October 16th, exclusively for Nintendo Switch.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

There’s big news for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate too. As we reported earlier, Banjo & Kazooie have released already, following the Direct. New fighter Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury is also coming to the game as DLC character #4.

But that’s not all in the works for Smash Bros. as Masahiro Sakurai revealed later that Sans from Undertale is also out now as a Mii Gunner costume.

Terry Bogard will release in November. Banjo-Kazooie and the Mii Fighter costumes are out now for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

It’s time to wake the Wind Fish in the new trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. This beautiful new adventure will have Link facing off against some classic Nintendo characters, as well as exploring some mysterious dungeons.

Players can even craft their own dungeons using the new Chamber Dungeon feature. Using unlocked panels, players can save a custom dungeon to a compatible Zelda Amiibo and transfer them to a friend’s game.

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will release on September 20th, exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
