In a surprise Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase, Nintendo revealed several third-party games coming to Switch over the next days, weeks, and months.

The most surprising news are ports of the Final Fantasy Legend RPG series, which originally released on the Game Boy in the early 90s. Explore the world, fight monsters, level up, and transform your party into beasts and robots. All three games are coming to Switch in the Collection of SaGa Final Fantasy Legend bundle. A high-speed mode has been added, as well as the option to detach the Joy-Con controllers and hold them vertically, to create the feel of a Game Boy.

Collection of SaGa Final Fantasy Legend will release on the Nintendo eShop on Dec. 15, for $19.99.

Popular free-to-play multiplayer game World of Tanks: Blitz is out now on Nintendo Switch. Control over 350 combat vehicles and wage explosive war with other players. Login before Sept. 9 to ear a special gift that includes a T2 Medium tank, three days of premium access, 1,000 gold, and an exclusive avatar.

Just Dance returns to Switch with Just Dance 2021. The rhythm dance game features 40 new songs, including “Don’t Start Now” by Dua Lipa and “Feel Special” by TWICE. Just Dance 2021 includes a co-op mode, and launches Nov. 12.

Other news from the Mini Direct include a rhtym spin-off of Kingdom Hearts called Melody of Memory, (release date TBA), a fighting game based on the Rocky/Creed films (including likenesses!) with Big Rumble Boxing: Creed Champions (Spring 2021), and Creeping Winter DLC coming to Minecraft Dungeons (Sept.).

“We appreciate the continued support for Nintendo Switch from our development and publishing partners,” said Steve Singer, Nintendo of America’s Senior VP. “The diverse collection of games highlighted in these Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase presentations helps to deepen the already-rich library of games that Nintendo Switch owners can enjoy.”
