As Nintendo mentions, this new game appears to be a return of sorts to the GBA's Mario Tennis: Power Tour, which featured a surprisingly-deep RPG-like story. While it's only 15 minutes long, it's jam-packed with information regarding new titles, updates, re-releases, and remasters for the Switch.

Dark Souls: Remastered, out on May 25th, joins Skyrim and Doom as prominent third-party games getting new life on Nintendo's console.

PayDay 2 will cost $49.99 United States dollars when it hits the Nintendo Switch on February 28. Players can also use the Joy-Con controllers to try combat in an all-new way, though the Direct Mini didn't share details on how that mechanic would work. The Switch version of Dark Souls will be include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC and will have improved frame rate and resolution.

While we'll take any excuse to replay Dark Souls for the umpteenth time, we're not entirely sure why this remaster exists.
