That also includes all of the premium DLC that was released.

A lot of cool new games were revealed during the surprise Nintendo Direct this morning and a new Mario Tennis was among the most exciting announcements. There is also a new local multiplayer mode called CRIME.NET Local Play, that will let you set up a local game and invite friends that share the same local network. While this doesn't mark the debut of such a mode in an "MT" game - the honor goes to "Mario Tennis Power Tour" for the Game Boy Advance - it's a first for a Nintendo console outing.

In Balloon World, players will be able to hide balloons within stages. But of course, the console's stunning numbers in other territories mean that it will get a constant stream of new games also in Japan, and new releases like Dissidia: Final Fantasy NT and especially Monster Hunter: World could prove to be big hits for the console. It's competitive search and find with balloons, complete with online leaderboards.

The free update to "Super Mario Odyssey" also gives Mario three new outfits: Super Mario Sunshine shirt and glasses, a musician costume and a full knight's armor.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is getting new downloadable content, and it focuses on one of Nintendo's leading characters.
