3DS

Spanish site HobbyConsolas was recently about to speak with Nintendo’s Yoshio Sakamoto. Sakamoto had a bunch to say about last year’s Samus Returns, including its development, how the final boss came to be, and more. He also comments on why there was never a Metroid on DS and why it took so long for a 3DS entry, Switch, and a few other topics.

Here’s a summary of what Sakamoto mentioned:

Two more Legendary Pokemon distributions are planned for Pokemon Ultra Sun, Pokemon Ultra Moon, Pokemon Sun, and Pokemon Moon. Kyogre and Groudon will be offered throughout the month of August.

In United States, these two Pokemon will be distributed exclusively at GameStop and at EB Games in Canada. They’ll be offered through August 26.

To celebrate today’s launch of WarioWare Gold in North America, Nintendo issued a new “Microgames Galore!” trailer. We’ve included it below.

Persona Q2 was announced for 3DS one year ago. Atlus has said nothing since, but we’re finally due for a proper update.

The company has confirmed that a commercial for Persona Q2 will air in Japan during the latest episode of Persona 5: The Animation, which is happening on August 4. Atlus says that it will have new information.

We’ll bring you the commercial as soon as we have it.
