Pokemon GO estimated to be generating $10 million every day, not hurting other mobile games
Posted on 6 hours ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Mobile, News | 5 Comments | 0 Likes
Pokemon GO is generating $10 million across iOS and Google Play each day, App Annie reports.
That’s just one tidbit from the market researcher’s latest report. It also goes into detail about other topics, such as how Pokemon GO is impacting other mobile apps. Based on App Annie’s data, Pokemon GO “has not had a sustained and meaningful impact on the daily revenue of other games on iOS and Google Play”, and there have not been “any meaningful declines in daily revenue for top-grossing games”.
App Annie views Pokemon GO as a positive element of expanding the mobile market. Not only has it “introduced and popularized the concept of AR”, but businesses are now starting to learn about the value of AR as in-game Lure Modules to boost foot traffic as well as consumer spend.
You can read up on App Annie’s full piece here.

Citizens of Earth was taken down from the 3DS eShop back in May due to a homebrew vulnerability. Atlus said soon after that it would return, but we haven’t heard anything since.
Well, good news! Citizens of Earth has returned to the 3DS eShop. We don’t know when that happened, but hey – it’s there. If you’re interested in purchasing the game, you now have the opportunity to do so once again.

The end of Disney Infinity continues, with it being announced today that “All Disney Infinity online services and community features for all versions will be discontinued” on March 3, 2017. Toy Boxes can be downloaded until that date. However, the Disney Infinity Community team will no longer accept new Toy Boxes as of September 30.
Even after March 3 approaches, Disney Infinity players will still have “full access to figures and play sets only with the exception of community content features and online multiplayer”.
Here’s the full timeline for the discontinuation of Disney Infinity’s online services:
Since announcing that we will discontinue the production of Disney Infinity, we’ve been exploring timelines for the closure of the game’s online versions and community features.

Yesterday, Forbes published an interview with Niantic CEO John Hanke. It covered Hanke’s early days with gaming, working at Keyhold, and eventually starting Niantic.
The middle part of the interview is where the discussion becomes interesting for Pokemon GO plans. Hanke talked about the game’s success thus far, cheating (some of “those things may not work in the future”), server issues, and other topics.
We’ve rounded up some of Hanke’s comments below. You can read Forbes’ full interview here.
Quest of Dungeons release date update, cross-buy supported
Posted on 11 hours ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in 3DS eShop, News, Wii U eShop | 0 comments | 0 Likes
We previously mentioned that Quest of Dungeons has a September 1 release date in Europe on Wii U. The 3DS version is still coming, but it’s in lot check at the moment – meaning no date yet. As for North America, both versions are pending (though still planned of course).
Quest of Dungeons will cost €8.99. Even better, when both versions are available, cross-buy will be supported. Buying the game on Wii U will net you the 3DS version for free, and vise versa.
Quest of Dungeons will support off-TV play and the Pro Controller on Wii U. The 3DS version officially has StreetPass functionality, in which you encounter the ghost of another player’s failed attempts and try to kill/loot.
