One has to admire Nintendo's game support, providing DLC for what is essentially an eight-year-old game. Star Wars: Force Unleashed and Chrono Cross are just examples of ports coming to Nintendo Switch this year. Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection and Zombie Army 4: Dead War are two others. There were no crazy mic drop moments at this showcase. Unless, of course, you count Nintendo Switch Sports. Who would have guessed that the spiritual successor to Wii Sports would make everyone go crazy like a bunch of Miis who had a bowling ball thrown in their direction? Not us. What did you think about the February Nintendo Direct? Let us know down in the comments.
