Now Playing: Overwatch, SNES Games, Banjo-Kazooie, And More From The Nintendo Direct - GS News Update

The description of the classes in the trailer gives an idea of how most of them will play. Elementalists are all-around fighters and tap every kind of energy. Paladins manipulate the battlefield and draw mostly from yellow gems. Monks rely on earth and fire attacks, and Priests are defensive warriors who use earth and air elements. Blood Mage is the only new class that was not shown in detail in the trailer.

Puzzle Quest is a match-3 puzzle game in which the various colored gems act as different RPG aspects like melee combat or spell-casting. You build your character as you move through the story and gain more power. It was followed by a space-themed sequel with hexagonal grids, Puzzle Quest Galactrix, which is not included in this collection. The games have since been ported to mobile devices, along with the spin-off Marvel Puzzle Quest.

Nintendo Switch also received a load of new announcements during a recent Nintendo Direct presentation detailing the company's plans for the rest of 2019. You can check out the biggest news from that event below.
