Magikarp Jump now out in Japan; new patch adds support for multiple languages, including English
As we reported yesterday, Magikarp Jump is now available on the Japanese Google Play and iOS stores. However, what’s noteworthy is that this release came with a new patch for the game, which brings it to version 1.0.1. This version includes language support for English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean and Traditional Chinese. If you can access the Japanese web stores, you can now play the game in the language of your choosing. Even if you can’t do that though, it shouldn’t be too much longer until the game is properly released in more countries.

A new Pokemon Safari is now live with the Pokemon being Grubbin, Charjabug, Vikavolt, Crabrawler and Crabominable.
Finally a new competitive stage is available with Incineroar. These events will run until June 5th.
CEO of Level-5, Akihiro Hino, talked with Nikkei Trendy about his personal experiences with the Nintendo Switch and at the very end states that the company is working on games that support the Nintendo Switch. You can check out the excerpt below.
Hino:“I think Switch is good. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is extremely fun. It’s almost dangerous. (Laughs.) Actually, playing with Switch myself, my impression [of the system] has changed a lot from when it was still in development. I was hesitant about its ‘play both inside and outside’ style, but I feel like there is a considerable potential there.
“Anyway, Zelda is a lot of fun, so I personally carry it around and play it as much as I can, even on airplanes. The model that Nintendo gave me is the one with the red- and blue-colored controllers, so when I carried it around a lot, the looks I got made me self-conscious. I bought the black controller that they released myself and attached it. (Laughs.)
“I think the Style of Switch is a wonderful fit for competitive games. You can play if you’re gathered in real life, as well as online. For example, I think the fact that the game lovers within a company can get together and play Mario Kart is really fascinating and interesting. And while I can’t say the content quite yet, we’re working on game(s)* that support [Switch].”

In an interview with GameSpot, creative Vice President of Monolith Productions Michael de Plater said that the studio currently has “no plans” to bring the title to the Nintendo Switch at this time.
GP: You’ve confirmed Xbox Scorpio and PS4 Pro support. But can you get this on the Switch?

Unfortunate, but one can always hope that the game will be ported in the future.
