On Thursday, Nintendo hosted a Nintendo Direct, where several new games and features were announced. Here are a few notable entries to the direct.

Katamari Damacy Reroll will be a simple remaster of its original title. It will release on November 30 on the Nintendo eStore and physical copies will be available on December 7.

The wait is finally over, as Nintendo has finally announced Animal Crossing for the Switch. Right now, they have not indulged fans with information about its release. We just have a broad spectrum release window of 2019.

If you’re looking for some 3DS news, you’re in luck! Sometime in 2019, you will be able to get your hands on Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn, an exclusively 3DS Kirby game. It features the same art design as its Wii origin title.

Fans got more information relating to the upcoming Let’s Go games. Secret Techniques, which seem to replace the HMs from previous games, were mentioned in the section. You can get your hands on Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee on November 16.

Coming September 18, Nintendo Switch Online will finally be up and running. With a membership for the service you can, of course, play online with your friends, play classic NES titles, store save data, voice chat via their official app, and get special offers.

We were also surprised with a brand new entry to a series which has been dead since 2013 to the Western world; fans can finally play as Mario’s taller, greener brother Luigi in his own game. Luigi’s Mansion 3 was given the same treatment as Animal Crossing and we only know it’ll be released in 2019.

These were only highlights and not the whole roster of announcements. For more announcements, you can check out the Nintendo Direct here.
