The latest Nintendo Direct outlined plans for a ton of games, from Fire Emblem: Three Houses to Super Mario Maker 2. Most of them are slated for later this year, but some are available on the Eshop right this very minute. Here’s a full wrap-up of all the games and demos you can try out today.

Tetris 99

The Nintendo Switch has a brand new battle royale game, and this time it’s… Tetris? The classic puzzle game returns as a 99-player battle for Tetris supremacy. Tetris 99 is free-to-play and available through the eShop starting today. You’ll need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to play online and participate in upcoming special events.

Final Fantasy 9

The classic RPG Final Fantasy 9 is coming today to the eShop. This game originally on PlayStation was a loving homage to the classic 8- and 16-bit Final Fantasy games, utilizing more medieval-style fantasy tropes than the science-fiction inspiration of FF7 and FF8. Plenty more Final Fantasy games are on the way, though, including FF7 on March 26, the Final Fantasy X and X-2 remasters on April 16, and XII: The Zodiac Age on April 30.

Yoshi’s Crafted World demo

If you want something cozy and cute in your life, look no further than Yoshi’s Crafted World, a platformer starring everyone’s favorite dinosaur. The demo is hitting the Eshop today, and a short trailer showed off Yoshi taking to a variety of vehicles and trading coins for special cardboard costumes. The full game is coming on March 29.

Daemon x Machina demo

We haven’t seen very much of the mech combat game Daemon x Machina, but that changes today with the first public demo. The “Prototype Missions” demo will only be available for a limited time, and Nintendo is inviting feedback with an online survey for those who try it out. It will consist of four missions showing off the basic controls, followed by a boss battle. It’s still aimed for a Summer 2019 release.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker update

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is getting a pair of updates, both of which let you experience some fresh treasure tracking starting today. First, a free update available today will make all courses playable in co-op mode, so you can grab your Toadette buddy and go exploring. The second update will add a “Special Episode,” and won’t be fully available for a month. The new episode adds five new courses and 18 challenges. A digital bundle is available on the eShop today, though, and buying that will gain you access to the first of the new courses immediately.
