Shumpalations has translated a classic interview with Yasuhiko Fujii. Fujii previously worked at Nintendo, and more specifically, on Super Metroid as a programmer.

Player versus player battles has been one of Pokemon GO’s most-requested features since launch. Very soon, Niantic may finally be delivering on fans’ wishes.

Niantic has been posting a few different teases on the Pokemon GO Twitter account today, culminating with the image above. It gives us what appears to be our first look at PvP. While we don’t really have much in the way of details yet, hopefully we’ll be learning more soon.


Originally, Fortnite was intended to have a new account merging feature go live this month. With November just about over, players might be curious as to why we haven’t seen it yet. Epic Games provided an update on its website today.

Because of “ongoing technical concerns,” the functionality has been delayed. Epic now intends to have it ready sometime in early 2019.
