Nintendo revealed another slew of titles that will come to the Switch, from old favorites and cult classics to, uh, Dark Souls.

Nintendo launched the first ever but indirectly titled "Mario Tennis" on the Virtual Boy back in 1995 to mixed reviews.

As for the software charts, Nintendo Switch begins the year in full force occupying most of the positions of the list, while PS4 contemplates a worrysome and ironic situation as the software sales don't match with the high numbers of hardware. The simian can double jump, hover, perform infinite rolls and even perform infinite underwater corkscrews. 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. New wrinkles in tennis gameplay will challenge your ability to read an opponent's position and stroke to determine which shot will give you the advantage.

Overkill Software's "Payday 2" is being ported for the Nintendo Switch and it will arrive for the console on February 27.

This action game set in the Zelda universe takes all the characters, maps, and missions from its Wii U and 3DS outings complete with all its paid downloadable content. The addition is small, but Link and Zelda will both feature their outfits from Breath of the Wild to add a little something extra to this edition. Donkey Kong is coming into the game's world, and with his inclusion comes a fresh piece of story. Special moves can be used with the press of a button and specific items let you turn the tide of battle. It came out past year on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, and it's headed to Nintendo Switch this summer.
