Limited Run Games “going to try and focus on going all-out on the Switch”
Posted 1 hour ago by Brian in News, Switch | 5 Comments
Limited Run Games is a name you may have heard of if you play titles on PlayStation platforms. Since 2015, the company has been releasing physical versions of indie titles on PlayStation 4 and primarily PlayStation Vita.
Limited Run Games now has its sights set on Switch. Speaking with CNET, co-founder Josh Fairhurst said the team is “really going to try and focus on going all-out” on Nintendo’s new system.
Fairhurst’s full words:
“I also see a lot of opportunity in the Nintendo Switch. I think many Vita fans will pick one up, maybe even begrudgingly, by the time the Vita is phased out. If we start publishing games there, I think that would be a nice place for Vita fans to relocate, should that become a necessity.”
“We’re really going to try and focus on going all-out on the Switch. Moving to 3DS would be costly and time-consuming and by the time we figure it out, we might as well just have focused on the Switch.”

Posted 2 hours ago by Fernando in Mobile, News | 4 Comments
Dataminers at The Silph Road have found more signs of arriving new Pokémon inside the raw data of Pokémon GO’s most recent patch.
Specifically, there’s some new mentions for evolution items such as King’s Rock, Metal Coat or Upgrade, which can be used to evolve Slowbro into Slowking, Onix into Steelix and Porygon into Porygon2. There’s also the Sun Stone and the Dragon Scale, evolutionary items that are needed to get Bellossom and Kingdra. All of these Generation 2 Pokémon would be ready to obtain in future updates along with Unowns, which have been mentioned explicitly as forms ranging from Unown A to Unown Exclamation Point.
According to The Silph Road, there has been an addition of 38 new moves. This is the first time that Niantic has implemented moves to Pokémon GO if we don’t take into account Ditto’s Transform.
Additionally, they have found more mentions to avatar customization such as belts, glasses and necklaces, more code to support the shiny and gender variations of pokémon and a new system for debugging purposes.
It is expected that Niantic will implement these new features in a future Pokémon GO update.
