Dark Souls: Remastered, out on May 25th, joins Skyrim and Doom as prominent third-party games getting new life on Nintendo's console. The 2013 game Payday 2 is also coming to the Switch on February 27th, complete with online cooperative gameplay. On the indie side, the EA Originals game Fe is coming to Nintendo's console on February 16th, while tower platformer Celeste is out on January 25th.

Players looking for more relaxed gameplay can try out the Dragon Quest Builders demo, live on the Nintendo eShop today. The Switch is also getting a port of the action RPG Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana this summer, which came out on the PlayStation Vita in 2016. Fighting game fans wo not get new full games, but they will get the odd SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy this summer and revived 16-bit ACA NEOGEO Art of Fighting today on the Nintendo eShop.

On the first-party side, Nintendo announced Kirby Star Allies will arrive for the Switch on March 16th, while the new title Mario Tennis Aces is slated for release sometime in the Spring. A definitive version of the Dynasty Warriors-like horde brawler Hyrule Warriors, which includes all the content from the old Wii U and 3DS versions of the game plus character skins from Breath of the Wild, will come to the console sometime in Spring 2018. The Wii U's underrated Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is getting ported to the Switch, out on May 4th. And out of nowhere, Square Enix's Nintendo DS cult hit (released a solid decade ago) The World Ends With You is getting re-released on the Switch and will be available at some point in 2018.
