Everything You Need To Know From Today's Nintendo Direct Mini

The game launches later this year, though Nintendo did not detail a more specific release window. It's less than 15 minutes but packed with information about upcoming Switch games and DLC, as well as one major new game announcement.

This Wii U classic hits the Nintendo Switch with a beginner-friendly mode that comes with a new character, Funky Kong. The game will also include all downloadable content. The Battle Pack is available for purchase now on the Nintendo eShop for $14.99. It will be released in two waves. This month adds Aegislash as a new battle Pokémon and Mega Rayquaza and Mimikyu as support Pokémon.

What sets Nintendo apart is the familiarity of its IP, from Mario to Zelda to Donkey Kong, all of which have been icons of the video game zeitgeist for decades. The Pokemon that changes between forms is coming via paid DLC to the Nintendo Switch.

The introduction of Donkey Kong to the Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle cast and the announcement of "Luigi's Balloon World", a hide-and-seek style Super Mario Odyssey mode, rounded out the major reveals. The update will also include new outfits for Mario, like a Knight costume.
