More on Super Mario Run’s Version 2.0.0 Update


With Super Mario Run’s new update and android release slated for release two days from now, even more details regarding the update has come to light!

First up, get ready to rebuild your Kingdom as new items are coming to the shop, which includes Blue Yoshi’s House. Naturally Blue Yoshi’s House will unlock Blue Yoshi as a playable character, but certain requirements will need to be met in order to purchase the house in the first place.

But the biggest reveal is something the free players of Super Mario Run will enjoy most. Once the update rolls out, a Challenge from Bowser will be available and it allows free players to take on World 1-4 without having to pay for the full game and provided they beat it, additional levels will be added to Toad Rally, as well as the means to earn both Green and Blue Toads. (Prior to the update, free players could only get Red Toads.)

While that covers everything from today’s Super Mario Run news, should any more details regarding the update come to light, you can expect to read about them all right here and if there’s not, you can expect our full coverage of the update on Thursday. So until then, keep on gaming!

Goodbye Project Sonic 2017 and Hello Sonic Forces!


At last Project Sonic 2017 has a name and that name is Sonic Forces!

 

I’m not a huge fan of the name, but at least SEGA did have a bit of style when they revealed it to us. Playing the trailer for Sonic Forces that we saw last year, which played pretty much exactly like it did before, only to then have Sonic Forces appear at the end of it. Although I’m not to show how it will do for Nintendo Switch since it’s releasing in the Holiday period, which is the same time Super Mario Odyssey is to release. (I hope their sales battle won’t affect their next Olympic debut.) Continue reading Goodbye Project Sonic 2017 and Hello Sonic Forces!

The Future is Switch (Switch Production will Double in April)


But will double be enough though?

Of course it will sell badly as supply becomes non-existent, but according to the Wall Street Journal that is about to change. Continue reading The Future is Switch (Switch Production will Double in April)

The Next Contender is… Grand Hero Michalis (Fire Emblem Heroes)


Since Grand Hero Battles began, before we actually got to know who they are, first we had to guess, but I guess we’re not doing that anymore.

More Details on the Japanese Ash-Pikachu Distribution for Sun & Moon


Now that a few days have passed since the Ash-Pikachu distribution was revealed in CoroCoro, Serebii has had the time to translate the details much better and the results are interesting.

 

As it turns out, every single cap wearing Pikachu will come with the standard Poké Ball to call and each hold a Pikashunium Z Z-Crystal. They’ll all also all have the ability Static, but that’s were their similarity ends. Besides having different hats, they’ll also have different levels, and differing moves and we have all of that information: Continue reading More Details on the Japanese Ash-Pikachu Distribution for Sun & Moon
