Nintendo leans on DC, Star Wars for Switch games

As the Switch continues to gain ground in console sales, the gamemaker is bolstering its catalogue for the handheld with sport-themed titles and well-known franchises.
February 18, 2021

Nintendo unveiled a new lineup of family-friendly Switch games yesterday at its Nintendo Direct presentation, and the gaming company is leaning on some well-known IPs.

First up is DC Super Hero Girls Teen Power, inspired by the DC Super Hero Girls TV series from Warner Bros. Animation. This title marks the first time Nintendo has adapted a WB show for the Switch handheld platform. It has historically focused on picking up LEGO-themed superhero games and retrofitting existing titles, like DC Universe Online.

The Star Wars franchise will also be debuting on Switch for the first time. Nintendo has partnered with Zynga (Farmville, Words with Friends) and Lucasfilm to launch the team-based online shooter game Star Wars Hunters.

Popular character Mario is back in new game Mario Golf Super Rush. And the game-maker rounded out its conference call by unveiling team-based dodgeball game Knockout City, a new role-player from the makers of the Final Fantasy franchise, and announcing that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD will soon be available on Switch.
