"He'll be erased from existence if he can't compete a series of twisted tasks", the Nintendo Direct Mini explained.

The character will have all new perks and abilities distinct from the other characters in the game, including hacker perks, which should really come in handy for stages where you have to hack stuff.

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.

Nintendo announced a new Mario Tennis game: Mario Tennis Aces. "And this time the game adds the first story mode since the Mario Tennis game on Game Boy Advance, offering a new flavor of tennis gameplay, with a variety of missions and boss battles".

Nintendo is trying to bring more attention on titles released on previous systems that didn't receive enough play in the past.

A demo for the Dragon Quest Builders Demo is now available on Nintendo Switch and it will be released by the end of this month. The Wii U's underratedDonkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is getting ported to the Switch, out on May 4th.

From the looks of things, Mario Tennis Aces's story mode looks to be quite a bit different from the ones in the portable games. It will be released in two waves. This month adds Aegislash as a new battle Pokémon and Mega Rayquaza and Mimikyu as support Pokémon. Wave 2, however, will add Blastoise as a playable fighter with support Pokemon, Mew and Celebi. So far, the characters covered in the gameplay trailer are Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi.

Luigi's Balloon World is a competitive mode players can access by finding Luigi in each kingdom.

New titles being added to the Switch were the highlight of the presentation. A definitive version of the Dynasty Warriors-like horde brawler Hyrule Warriors, which includes all the content from the old Wii U and 3DS versions of the game plus character skins from Breath of the Wild, will come to the console sometime in Spring 2018.

Similar to the Scholar of the First Sin edition of Dark Souls 2, the remaster will allow up to six players to join a game session - and increase of two over the original Dark Souls - though there's no confirmation on the mix of white (co-op) and black (pvp) phantoms. The Switch version of Dark Souls will be include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC and will have improved frame rate and resolution. Some titles got announced, while some we already knew about got release dates.
