In the case of Hyrule Warriors, we'll get all the content from both the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game.

Nintendo has confirmed today that Wii U titles Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Hyrule Warriors are getting revived on Switch.

The new addition for the Switch release comes in the way of the super cool, surfing Funky Kong and a new "chill" mode of play.

Overwatch League-Twitch Deal Worth At Least $90M
The Overwatch League will run, at the Blizzard Arena in Los Angeles, until June, with play-offs and finals scheduled for July. The core addition of the patch is an entirely new menu accessed via the Overwatch League button on the main screen.

Ubisoft has announced that Donkey Kong will smash his way into Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle as a new playable hero.

According to that broadcast, Nintendo will be porting Hyrule Warriors and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze over to the Switch this year. In it, you will take control of Funky Kong, a character that has unique abilities like double jump, spin infinitely, float and swim better than anybody else. This makes the Switch port all the more important, as it means that a much bigger audience has a chance to give it a shot.
