Nintendo released their Nintendo Direct for September 2018, detailing all the latest games for the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch. Here’s a recap of the most important news to come from the livestream.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 (working title) was announced for Nintendo Switch on the Nintendo Direct September 2018. It’s coming sometime in 2019. More information about the game will be revealed in the future.

According to the trailer, Luigi will use the strobe light from Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon and the plunger launcher as seen in the reveal trailer for Simon Belmont for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Luigi’s Poltergust also comes with a jetpack letting him jump in the air for a short time.

The pizza boxes in the trailer contain a cool Easter Egg: the side of the boxes read “Since 1983.” 1983 is the release date of the arcade game Mario Bros. where Luigi made his first appearance.

Kirby’s Epic Yarn is coming from the Nintendo Wii to the 3DS in the form of Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn. This version comes with extra power ups, minigames, and a “Devilish Mode” where Kirby must outrun a demon.

Mario and Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story + Bowser Jr.’s Journey is coming to the 3DS on January 11, 2019.

The original Luigi’s Mansion is coming to the 3DS on October 12, according to the Direct. The game will support a complete co-op mode so long as two people own the game. If only one player has a copy of the game, you can still play co-op but only play through the bosses. Amiibo support is also coming which lets players find hidden Boos and heal up.

Splatoon 2 is getting a 4.0 version update. A new stage based on a Japanese temple as well as new weapons and specials are coming soon.

The Nintendo Switch version of Mega Man 11 will support Mega Man Amiibo. Tapping the Amiibo onto the system once a day will grant you additional E-Tanks and other items.

Mario Tennis Aces will welcome Birdo, Shy Guy, Koopa Paratroopa, and Petey Piranha as playable characters. More characters will be added until next June. A new co-op mode is also coming which lets you unlock hats and alternate colors for characters. The version two update will come September 19.

Final Fight, The King of Dragons, Captain Commando, Knights of the Round, Warriors of Fate and more are all being included in Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle. Four player co-op and online mode supported. Coming September 18.

New Super Mario Bros. U is being remastered for Switch in the form of New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. New Luigi Bros. U is also being bundled into the game. The remaster was rumored to exist in July 2018, but now it’s a reality. New characters are included. Nabbit doesn’t take damage from enemies while Toadette can transform into Peachette who can double jump and gets an extra boost before falling into a bottomless pit. The game is coming January 11, 2019.

Katamari Damacy is being remastered for the Nintendo Switch, marking the first occasion of the series being on a Nintendo platform. You can control the game with gyro controls. It’s coming Winter 2018.
