Niantic is in the process of rolling out a new Pokemon GO update. On iOS, the game is being updated to version 1.7.0 while it’s 0.37.0 on Android.

IGN has now published its full interview with Shigeru Miyamoto about Super Mario Run. Among the responses, Miyamoto touched on when development truly began, the various modes, the fact that it’s a different experience compared to the console games, pricing, and more.

We’ve rounded up the interesting comments from Miyamoto below. You can read IGN’s full article IGN.

With Super Mario Run, Nintendo will be attempting to attract players who aren’t entirely experienced with Mario titles or games as a whole. However, that doesn’t mean it’ll be devoid of challenge for longtime fans.

Nintendo developer Shigeru Miyamoto wouldn’t divulge what we can expect from Super Mario Run’s later levels. He did say, however, that Mario fans won’t have to worry about easily making it to the end.

Miyamoto teased:

“A big point with this game is, ‘How can we make this a game that people who aren’t good at games can play the game and enjoy it?’ But also at the same time, we’ve been making Mario games for a long time, and we know how to make them challenging. So if you’re a Mario fan, I don’t think you have to worry about that part of it.”


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

“The show must go on! Miitomo Concert #1” is the new stage. It includes the following:

– Acoustic guitar
– Violin
– Saxophone
– Synthesizer

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

– Round glasses
– Angel wings hairclips
– Angelic toga
– Front-tied shirt
– Fine-knit turtleneck
– Roll-up chino pants
– Precious gemstone pumps
– Piano brooch

Miitomo is once again featuring a collaboration with a Nintendo franchise. This time, the focus is on Kirby.

There are quiet a few things going on with the Kirby collaboration. Here’s the rundown:

Kirby re-tweet event

The Telegraph is the latest outlet to have published an interview with Shigeru Miyamoto about Super Mario Run. Nintendo’s legendary developer touched on why this is the right time for Mario to be on mobile, why the game is on iOS first, and more.

We’ve posted a few notable excerpts from the interview below. The Telegraph has the full discussion here.

Thus far, we’ve seen amiibo incorporated into both Wii U and 3DS. The functionality is likely to be integrated into NX as well. But what about smart devices, which Nintendo is now supporting quite a bit?

Shigeru Miyamoto appears to be open to the idea. Speaking with IGN, Miyamoto mentioned: “There’s nothing we can announce today but it’s certainly an area we’re interested in, and today Apple announced some new news about their NFC technology.”

It’s not a confirmation, but that sounds like a very positive response. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see amiibo-supported mobile titles in the future.


Yesterday, Niantic CEO John Hanke confirmed that Pokemon GO has topped 500 million downloads. App Annie now reports that the game has earned over $500 million in worldwide customer spending across iOS and Android. It’s the fastest title to reach that mark, as Candy Crush Saga took over 200 days and Clash of Clans and Puzzle & Dragons took over 400 days. Pokemon GO hit the mark in just over 60 days. Incredibly, it’s on track to reach $1 billion in revenue by the end of 2016.

Nintendo has published a few screenshots from Pokemon GO showing what the interface looks like when you’re using Pokemon GO Plus. Have a look at the images below.

Pokemon GO Plus is due out very soon – September 16 to be exact.
