Watch the Nintendo Direct Mini here; All of announcements listed


While today's Nintendo Direct Mini was a bit low on actual new game announcements, one such announcement stood out, the return of Mario Tennis.

Almost three years after the last game in the spin-off series, Mario and friends are heading back to the court to serve up a new game. The character will also be joining Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, with the trailer showing DK pulling off a fastball special and tossing Rabbid Peach into the stratosphere in his big monkey arms. In Dark Souls: Remastered, players will experience the game that spawned its own genre of games.

Hyrule Warriors is getting one last release. In "Star Allies", you can team up with up to three other players to take on levels. Considering that the primary criticisms of that game revolved around its lack of content and innovations, we'd say that the quick reveal of Mario Tennis Ace's story mode suggests that Nintendo is aware of what went wrong and is willing to fix it. Mario Tennis Aces features new game modes, including a story mode, that fans will want to jump in and play right away.
