New Pokemon GO event starts later this week
Posted on 2 days ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Mobile, News | 0 comments | 0 Likes
Pokemon GO is kicking off a special event later this week as we move from summer to fall. Get the full details from Niantic below.
With cool autumn nights quickly approaching in the Northern Hemisphere and sunny spring days arriving in the Southern Hemisphere, we thought it would be the perfect time to celebrate the coming equinox with an in-game event. New seasons mean new adventures!
From 1:00 P.M. PDT on September 22 to 1:00 P.M. PDT on October 2, 2017, you’ll have the opportunity to earn double Stardust for catching Pokémon and hatching Eggs as you walk around your neighborhood discovering new sights. While you’re out exploring, be sure to visit your local PokéStops and Gyms to collect special 2 km Eggs that have the opportunity to hatch Pokémon such as Chansey, Mareep, Larvitar, and more. You’ll also be able to get special boxes from the in-game shop that feature items like Lucky Eggs, Lure Modules, and all-new Super Incubators which hatch Eggs 1.5 times quicker!
Registering a new Pokémon to your Pokédex during this limited-time celebration will earn you triple the normal XP. So that makes this a very good time to battle against the Legendary Pokémon originally from the Johto region. Don’t forget that Raikou, Entei, or Suicune will each travel to a new part of the world on September 30, so make sure to battle the Legendary Pokémon currently in your area while you can!

In Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, you can expect frenzied co-op action as you switch back and forth between manning a spacecraft’s controls, weapons, and defenses against alien robots. If you’d prefer playing the campaign alone, you can do so with a trusty AI space dog or cat.

SDV still in testing, no news yet. Thought this sneak peak might tide you over. We've learned a lot of lessons from working with Stardew. pic.twitter.com/EcabZ8DGb7

More evidence for the method of unlocking NES Golf on Switch, includes audio from Iwata

The way in which NES Golf on Switch can be unlocked came to light yesterday. Even so, it almost seemed too crazy to be true. Additional videos and images have surfaced over the past several hours, and with all of the evidence out there, it’s looking more and more like the discovery is real.
One such video is below. You’ll notice that it even includes audio from late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata saying “chokusetsu” (“direct”). With the unlock date being July 11 – the date of his passing – it seems like whoever came up with this went all out in honoring him.
