Nintendo released a surprise Nintendo Direct Mini presentation today and announced a number of new games, releases and DLC coming to Nintendo Switch 2020, including classics that XCOM 2, BioShock, also limit; a first look at the next Smash Bros. DLC character; More Star Wars ports; and more.
Here are the biggest announcements and news:
- Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition got a May 29 release date along with a new look at the game for the upcoming Switch port.
- A new Nintendo-developed puzzle game, Good work!, players have crashed through an office complex in a visual style similar to animated safety signs. (It launches today.)
- 2K Games brings some of its most popular games to Switch on May 29, including XCOM 2 Collection (XCOM 2 and all of its DLC, including The chosen war extension), the Borderlands Legendary Collection (Borderlands, Borderlands 2, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel), and all three BioShock games (available either separately or through BioShock: The Collection bundle).
- Next DLC fighter too Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be one of the fighters from Arms, and they will be available in June. Nintendo has not said which Arms character will join Smash Bros., but because Arms is already a first party Nintendo fighting game for Switch, it seems like a natural choice.
- Burnout Paradise Remastered is coming to Nintendo Switch after a release on PS4, Xbox One and PC last year. It will be out by 2020.
- There are more classic ones Star Wars ports: Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy will be available on Switch as of today Star Wars Episode I: Racer – The classic arcade and N64 podracing games – will be available later this year on Switch.

- We got another look at the upcoming Isle of Armor expansion too Pokémon sword and Protect, which showed how players will get the legendary Pokémon Kubfu and develop into Urshifu. The expansion is still scheduled for release in June.
