At the Animation on Display convention this week, Niantic held a panel for Pokemon GO. It was hosted by David Hollin, the team’s technical artist / designer. Some interesting tidbits were shared about the game’s origins, future plans, and more.

Hollin said that Pokemon GO first began with throwing Pokeballs by pressing a button. Players didn’t have control over how far or curved your throw would be.

Nintendo has sent out a few more details about what to expect from Super Mario Run version 2.0.0.

Once the new update is applied, players will see “A Challenge from Bowser”. Completing it will allow you to take on World 1-4 without having to pay. Then by finishing that level, new courses will be added in Toad Rally, plus Blue and Green Toads will also come to cheer in the free version. More items will be added to Kingdom Builder such as the Blue Yoshi home to unlock Blue Yoshi.

Super Mario Run version 2.0.0 launches on March 23 alongside the Android release.

Update: Results of the Michalis preview event: 54,666 players cleared the Hard battle, and 13,415 cleared the Lunatic battle. Everyone gets 10 Orbs, 10 Stamina Potions, and 5,000 Hero Feathers (thanks Brian).


Original: As was previously announced, the second Starter Support bonus map in Fire Emblem Heroes is now live. It’s available in two difficulties, Normal and Hard, and you get 3 orbs each for clearing them.

Also, this next piece of news flew a bit under the radar. The next Grand Hero Battle featuring Michalis will begin on Friday, March 24th, as the in-game notice describes – however, for some reason only the Japanese version of the game announced the following on top of that: on Monday, March 20th from 12:15 PM CET to 1 PM CET (roughly 90 minutes after this post went live), a special early preview of the Michalis Grand Hero Battle will be available. During that time, players can attempt both the Hard and Lunatic versions of the battle to try and get Michalis early. There will also be rewards sent out to all players the more people can beat the map during this limited time frame:

Hard & Lunatic clear rewards:

Nintendo began to tease Super Mario Run’s big 2.0.0 update a couple of days ago. In the first information batch, it was confirmed that new playable characters would be added.

We’re not sure if this is all, but Nintendo has announced that new Yoshi colors are incoming. Along with the usual green color, red, blue, yellow, and purple will be the alternates. Nintendo also points out that it will be easier to collect Toads of the same Yoshi color currently being used in Toad Rally.

Super Mario Run’s new update arrives on March 23. The game is hitting Android on the same day.

Super Mario Run is heading to Android on March 23. On the same day, Nintendo will also come out with a major update for the game. Players can look forward to version 2.0.0.

The new update “will introduce some new features”. A notice in the app teases new characters to play as along with the ability to unlock World 1-4 in the free version of the game by completing one of Bowser’s challenges.

Nintendo says that there’s more to the update than what’s been announced, but we’ll need to wait for additional details.

Super Mario Run has finally received a concrete release date on Android. It’s slated for March 23, Nintendo just announced.

It’s been a long wait for the Android version of Super Mario Run. Originally, the mobile game debuted December 15 on iOS.

Android users can pre-register for Super Mario Run here.

In addition to the Starter Support event, those of you playing Fire Emblem Heroes on an Android device will find another nice surprise waiting for you: a free 4-star (female) Corrin. While she’s not the most powerful unit ever, she might be a good candidate to test the new skill inheritance system.

Again, she is only being sent out to Android users – no such luck for people playing the game on an Apple device.

Miitomo has been updated with more content. Users will find a new stage, along with some brand new items.

“Jack in to fashion! Cyberpunk streetwear #2” is the new stage. It includes the following:

– Mass-produced android head (set)

And as far as the new items go, you can nab the following:

– Twin ponytail wig
– Polka dot dress + suede jacket
– Golden buckle pumps

A new set of Quests based on the Training Tower has begun in Fire Emblem Heroes. The Quests will run until April 3, and completing each one will unlock 3 Orbs. Each Quest must also be completed with all four allies surviving. The Quests are as follows:
