  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate adds Isabelle

Nintendo notes on its site that cloud saves will work with "the vast majority of Nintendo Switch games". At launch there will be 20 games available, including Super Mario Bros., Double Dragon, and The Legend of Zleda, with more added regularly.

The Nintendo Switch's online service is about to launch in less than a week's time. While it hasn't been confirmed as yet, we'd imagine that these games will benefit from better online infrastructure than before, and will also presumably come with features such as private rooms and the ability to team up more easily with people you know online. It could, sure - just look at the 3DS version of the game - but it wouldn't be very good. Following rumors of its existence, this title further confirms Nintendo's plan to pretty much port over every quality Wii U title. These include a cute customised console with a Poke Ball Plus and the Let's Go Pikachu game.

The new NES Controllers for Switch are available in a bundle of two for 49.99 and interested parties can pre-order them from September 19th.

Animal Crossing is finally headed to the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo revealed last night in their latest Nintendo Direct.




It's a working title, and it's not coming until 2019, but if you were a fan of the ghost hunting original, this is great news. That, combined with voice chat being relegated to the phone app still, leaves the service looking rather tepid.

We had heard about Warframe's jump to Nintendo's handheld console back in July during Tennocon, but now we actually know when it will arrive as well. "Fortnite" appears to be an exception because you don't have to pay to play it - it could be a tough sell to charge Nintendo Switch owners a fee to play a free-to-play game. If you're looking for some new characters, though, you can look forward to playing as Goomba, Bowser, Koopa Troopa, Diddy Kong, Donkey Kong and Waluigi, too.

Shinya Takahashi, General Manager of Nintendo's Entertainment Planning & Development Division, said: 'Luigi's next spooky adventure is in development for Nintendo Switch. Animal Crossing for SwitchShortly after revealing that Animal Crossing's Isabelle would be a playable character in Super Smash Bros. It seems that Nintendo still wants this app to be a "thing" and it would seem likely that it'll inject its use into games whenever possible.
