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)
– Mass-produced android body (set)
– Cyberpunk gas mask
– Hyperspace suit

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:

The Inherit Skill feature has finally arrived to Fire Emblem Heroes. It allows you to transfer skills from one Hero to another.

Picking two Heroes, you can send up to three skills from one of them to the other. The Hero transferring the skills over will be removed from you army afterwards. Some skills are non-transferable, and some cannot be transferred between different types of Heroes. For example, you cannot send a character’s weapon over to another character who has a different weapon type. Also, you cannot use Heroes who are listed as your favorite as a source.

Once the skill is transferred, it is not automatically unlocked. It must be unlocked through SP, and the SP cost will be 1.5 times as much as it was for its original Hero.
If a transferred Skill can be learned by a Hero by raising their star rating, though, the cost will be the regular amount.

Fire Emblem Heroes launched around the world last month. New information gives us a better idea as to how it’s performing thus far.

Based on data from App Annie, Fire Emblem Herowas was the fifth highest grossing mobile title in Japan during February. It also had the ninth spot in the US when apps such as Netflix are removed.

Thanks to Fire Emblem Heroes’ early success, Nintendo was the ninth highest grossing mobile publisher in February.


The next Grand Hero Battle in Fire Emblem Heroes will start on March 24. The battle will be against Michalis, the Ambitious King, and will most likely unlock him for your army like the previous events.


Fire Emblem Heroes has announced a pretty massive update slated for April. The update will include some tweaks to the basic game, as well as a few new features. These are as follows:

  • Merging Heroes will allow one Hero to inherit the Skills of another. Previously, merging Heroes only granted bonus stats, but now it will allow duplicate Heroes to pass on skills they have learned.
  • Hero Merit: a new stat for Heroes. Different Heroes will gain Hero Merit by participating in battles and, once their Merit is high enough, will earn Hero Feathers. Duplicate Heroes will share the Merit stat.
  • New battle rule sets: there will be two new rules on battles. Defense maps will be beaten by lasting a certain number of rounds, rather than clearing all enemies. Some maps will also have Reinforcements, where more enemy units will spawn.
  • Arena matchmaking: being tweaked to increase score and balance. Players will no longer be matched up against opponents based on total base stats, but rather on four factors: character levels/ratings, bonuses gained through Merge Allies, total base stats after removing skills, and equipped skills.
  • Notifications will only display once a day.
  • You can view descriptions of Bonus Heroes in the Arena.
  • There are also more Grand Hero Battles on the horizon, with time frames as follows:
