Nintendo has distributed a new update for Miitomo on both iOS and Android. For both platforms, versions 2.2.2 is available.

Nintendo is keeping somewhat quiet on the specifics for today’s patch. The notes only state that it implements feature improvements.

Update 1.2.0 is coming to Fire Emblem Heroes, and to implement it, the game will undergo maintenance, during which you won’t be able to play. The maintenance will last about 5 hours; exact times are below:

  • 12 AM (April 12th) – 5 AM (April 12th) in Europe
  • 7 AM (April 12th) – 12 PM (April 12th) in Japan
  • 6 PM (April 11th) – 11 PM (April 11th) in the US (East Coast)

Although we don’t know for sure, it’s likely that this is the big April update that has been teased for a while now, which will add features like 99 max stamina, the ability to swap the starting positions of your units before battle, and more.

In celebration of Miitomo’s first anniversary, Nintendo has brought back the “Let nature soothe you. Forest Friends” stage as voted in through a Twitter survey. Users can obtain popular items in this coin-exclusive special level.

It includes the following:

– Teddy bear hat
– Tree hood
– Tree costume
– Bee happy bear sweater
– Teddy bear overalls
– Vibrant mushroom tee
– Wacky mushroom sneakers
– Teddy bear backpack

The returning stage will be available until April 15 at 6:59 PM PT / 9:59 PM ET.

Update (4/7): Players should be able to grab the new update on iOS and Android.

Original (4/6): An update for Pokemon GO is in the process of being released. iOS users should soon be able to download version 1.31.0, while Android users will have version 0.61.0 to download.

The update adds Traditional Chinese language support and the Pokemon collection screen scroll bar has been updated, but otherwise includes only minor changes such as text changes and bug fixes.

Prior to the release of Fire Emblem Heroes, the “Choose your Legends” event was held where people could vote on their favorite Fire Emblem characters from across the franchise. Ike, Roy, Lyn and Lucina were the top ranking characters, which means they will be added to the game wearing special outfits. When this is going to happen was still unclear though – until today. Thanks to the Japanese Fire Emblem Heroes Twitter account, we at least have a rough idea when these characters will be added to the game, namely this Summer. Also included in this tweet was a brief voice clip of Ike:
