We have a brief update on the situation surrounding the Pokemon Sword/Shield leaks and The Pokemon Company’s search for the people involved. Earlier in the week, The Pokemon Company was granted the ability to subpoena Discord and 4chan to unmask their identities. Those two platforms will be forced to provide any information they have about the implicated subjects.

The Pokemon Company started its search last month. There were a number of leaks pertaining to Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, but the subpoena involved here involves the official guide. Certain fans were able to get their hands on the book weeks before release and shared images online showcasing unannounced Pokemon. The Pokemon Company felt those leaks caused “irreparable injury”.

The Pokemon Company’s end goal doesn’t just involve identifying the leakers. If their search is successful, they could have a lawsuit sent their way.

Have you ever heard of Minority Report: Everybody Runs? If you said no, we wouldn’t blame you.

Activision originally published the movie-based Minority Report: Everybody Runs for the Game Boy Advance way back in 2002. It was made by Torus Games. Alex Hutchinson, who directed the likes of Assassin’s Creed III and Far Cry 4, started his career working on that old GBA title.

Minority Report: Everybody Runs might be noteworthy if only for only one reason. During a recent episode of the Game Informer Show, Hutchinson revealed that movie director Steven Spielberg’s assistant reached out to the team during development. Spielberg apparently wanted the guns removed as they wouldn’t fit in with the GBA’s audience – which he felt was more kid-friendly. In its place, Torus Games was given a suggestion to replace the guns with the Sick Stick – a weapon already in the game – that makes you vomit.

Several new games out came out this week on the eShop. If you’re interested in checking out what’s new in screenshot form, take a look at the gallery below.
