Pokemon Master’s producer Yu Sasaki has released a new letter (#10) which gives details on upcoming events as well as explaining the use of recently updated features.

First, he talks about the new Tactics feature and how to optimize your team. But then he gets right into the new content, detailing the new Legendary Arena battles and how the opponents in these battles will work. The opponents in the Legendary Arena will have high HP and the attack patterns of these Pokemon will change when their HP is decreased- meaning that switching Sync Pairs will be very important for this battle. It appears that Entei will be the first Pokemon added to the arena.

Then Sasaki talks about the plans to improve existing features like reorganizing battles that reward items, reducing time spent battling for items, and setting a maximum number of playable battles per day. The full text of this letter is available in the source below to anyone who would like to know more specifics about these features.


SNK Gal’s Fighters, the classic fighter from the Neo Geo Pocket Color, launched on April 30 for the Nintendo Switch in Europe. Now, it has seemingly disappeared from the eShop. 

While the game is still currently available to purchase on the United States eShop, the link that previously belonged to it in Europe now results in a url that says “Not Found.” At this time it is unknown whether this is an error or a deliberate action but hopefully this issue will be addressed in the near future.


Dragalia Lost’s cross-over event Fire Emblem: Kindred Ties has gone live as of May 3, 11pm PT, and with it comes the ability to summon the divine dragon Tiki. Appearance rates for Tiki are boosted for the duration of the event.

In addition to Tiki, there are new coliseum quests to enjoy as well as a Lunatic difficulty that has been added to Thorr’s Descent. The news of this update comes with a gameplay video of Tiki in action, which is available to view below. 

Other than the Fire Emblem event, a new raid battle will be added on May 9th, featuring the boss Hypnos. You will need an Astral Piece to attempt this raid.

Director of Dragalia Lost, Yuji Okada, took time to detail what’s next for the game in May in a lengthy news update. Included in the article, he reiterates the features of the two Fire Emblem updates and then gets into what is coming this month.

For May, players can expect the revival of the Loyalty’s Requiem raid event, which was the first raid event after the game launched. The team is also adding an interlude to Chapter 13 of the story, as well as including the “Dream Big Under the Big Top” facility event to the event compendium. Both of these additions are expected in late May.

Finally, there will be added Master modes to some quests in The Agito Uprising, such as Volk’s Wrath, and the ability to craft craft tier II flame-attuned 6 star weapons.

The rest of the article talks about what is coming next in Dragalia Lost, and the entire column is available to read below:

Koei Tecmo is releasing a new update for Monster Rancher in Japan, which will bring a bunch of new content for free.

Most notably, there will be more monsters and an added Tournament mode where your monsters can battle without any instruction from breeders. There is also more music data to be added to the game (some of it exclusively for the Switch version) and a battle mode where you can select monsters uploaded from different players. 

The full details have been translated from Koei Tecmo’s press release and are included below, courtesy of Gematsu:

A new update for Pokemon Masters has been released (version 1.9) and it brings a long awaited feature – the ability to hatch eggs.

Eggs hatch after completing a series of battles in different areas and they hatch into Sync Pairs.  It is then possible to raise the power of the Pokemon that hatch from the eggs with an item called a Berry Tart (which will be added in a future update). Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle are currently available to hatch from eggs, although more Pokemon will be added later. Each require 5 completed battles in order to hatch. 

Other additions include a Daily Scout which you can use to obtain daily Sync Pairs/items at no cost and a feature that allows you to change the order that enemies will target your team members.
