The video will be the second Direct of the year after the Mini presentation that aired in January. That provided more information regarding Mario + Rabbids DLC and Payday 2's Switch port; it was also where Nintendo revealed Dark Souls Remastered for Switch and an updated edition of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. For more from that event, check out all the new Switch games shown during the January 2018 Nintendo Direct.
