Nintendo Direct Surprises With 3 Stealth Release Nintendo Switch Games

Three new Nintendo Switch games were released today, out of nowhere.

A new Nintendo Direct happened this morning featuring a Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door remaster, a new Mario game, and much more. It was 40-minutes long and featured several surprises for Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite, and, Nintendo Switch OLED owners. Included in these surprises was not one, not two, but three stealth releases. Unfortunately, one of the three stealth releases is locked behind a subscription to Nintendo Switch Online. Meanwhile, one of the remaining two is going to hurt your wallet more than you think. 

Below, you can find each of three games that were stealth released today via Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite, and Nintendo Switch OLED. This includes not just a trailer for each game, but information about the game itself. Further, there is pricing information with a hyperlink to the game's Nintendo eShop listing.
