However, as previously announced, Super Smash Bros.

Luigi's Mansion 3 is also in development. Not much has been revealed about the game other than it will be released in 2019. We have a lot to say about the game, but we'll have to save that for another time'. IGN gave Animal Crossing: New Leaf a 9.6, calling it "a whole new world full of lovable characters and insurmountable charm."Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp brought the series to mobile devices a year ago, offering a new spin on the series, as well".

The game involves players inhabiting a village with anthropomorphic animals, performing a range of tasks and activities including collecting things, socializing and spending in-game currency.

Offered exclusively to Nintendo Switch Online members, the retro controllers look (and presumably feel) just like the original NES gamepads albeit without the wire.

There were a number of notable announcements as part of the most recent Nintendo Direct broadcast, including a slew of Final Fantasy titles making their way to the Switch in addition to new installments in the Luigi's Mansion and Animal Crossing series. However they won't be available to everyone and they won't work in all games. DS, Wii and 3DS incarnations followed, alongside a number of spin-offs.

New Super Mario Bros. It will launch alongside the game on December 7.

The new version adds gyro controls, HD rumble and single Joy-Con controls for multiplayer battles.

Nintendo will be launching its online gaming service, Nintendo Switch Online on September 18.

You can pick up New Super Mario Bros. The smartphone app also has connectivity features for certain games, such as Splatoon 2, where game information can be beamed to your device for viewing.

Additionally, Nintendo clarified how access to the digital library of NES games will work.

Curiously, players still need an Xbox Live Gold membership to play Fortnite on its respective console, which now rings as odd considering the game's free-to-play status.
