3DS

Way back when Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure came out on PSP many years ago, it did see a physical release. But for the game’s latest versions (including 3DS), it was only made available digitally.

Mastiff could be changing this in the future. On Twitter, the publisher is gauging interest in a Kickstarter campaign that would feature a physical 3DS version as a stretch goal. If you’re interested, be sure to let the company know.

A couple of months ago, The Pokemon Company banned nearly 6,000 people from certain online activities in Pokemon Sun / Moon. These players were found to have been using altered save data.

Another 7,651 people have now been banned as well. They’ll be unable to access Game Sync, Rating Battles and Battle Competitions, and Global Missions. Such accounts will be hit with the error code 090-0212 when attempting to connect.

The Pokemon Company isn’t stopping here. More players will be banned if they are found to be using altered save data.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia makes use of amiibo in various ways. When scanning Fire Emblem figures from the Smash Bros. line, an Illusory Hero of that character will be summoned in battle, allowing players to seek assistance from spectral visages.

Over on its Twitter account, Nintendo UK gave a first look at Robin and Roy in action. Players will be able to use these figures and most of the rest at launch, but Corrin still hasn’t been released.

    The fifth Global Mission in Pokemon Sun & Moon has begun. This time, the goal is to hatch as many eggs as possible – 200,000 is the goal. If this goal is reached by April 10th, 23:59 UTC, the mission is considered a success and all players will receive 2000 FC. Failure will result in 200 FC instead. As per usual, these rewards are doubled if your save game is tied to a Global Link account.

    Furthermore, if players contribute 3 or more hatched eggs to the cause, they will receive a Rare Candy. If a total of 400,000 eggs are hatched between all players, everyone with a Global Link account will receive a Love Ball.

    While the screenshots posted on the official Dragon Quest XI website mostly covered stuff we already knew about, there was one interesting new piece of information in there. As it turns out, the ability to switch between the classic 2D sprite look and the more modern 3D appearance in the 3DS version of the game is more than just cosmetic. In 2D mode, battles start via random encounters. In 3D mode, you can actually see the monsters as you walk around – and you can attack them to gain a preemptive strike. Conversely, monsters will attack you first if they see your approach.
