Nintendo Direct Announcements: Switch News and Games Unveiled



Nintendo's direct presentation in February 2019 on Wednesday came to an end and, as promised, it provided us with new and reliable information on the upcoming Fire Emblem game for Nintendo Switch, Three Houses. Unfortunately, this was not released as early as planned – it was postponed to this summer – but Direct also revealed some new Switch games. In addition, we have received welcome updates on existing Switch games, with new free and paid downloadable content available for many of our favorite titles, including Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

In addition to the exciting news for Mario and Zelda – sorry, Animal Crossing fans and those hoping for Mother 3 – we learned today the list of games and demos on offer. Some of them are already available on the Nintendo Switch Eshop – and many are free – and the biggest surprise among them is a new free Tetris game that is essentially a Royal Battle experience where you battle against 98 other players . . It's an unusual concept, but actually very entertaining. Now, let's get to all the big news of the Direct.

Super Mario Maker 2
