Ys VIII is coming to the Switch, along with Dark Souls Remastered, a "definitive edition" of Hyrule Warriors, and a re-release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (with the addition of Funky Kong!). Not bad at all.
There was even one "We didn't see that coming" announcement: The World Ends with You is heading to the Nintendo Switch as The World Ends with You Final Remix. The enhanced Switch version of this Nintendo DS RPG classic features the clean, high-res graphics of its mobile port, and it also offers Joy-Con support. There's even new content in the form of an epilogue that has people wondering if Square-Enix has a sequel up its sleeve—but after all the Direct hype, I think we've all had enough of speculation for at least one day. Whew.
The Nintendo DS release of The World Ends with You is 10 years old (ack!). Caty, Kat, and I discussed this highly unique title on Axe of the Blood God last year. Needless to say, we're hyped at the prospect of re-visiting it and delving into its new content. Look for the game later this year.
