With Apple releasing iOS 11, compatibility with apps can be a bit wonky. Pokemon GO is one such game affected.

Niantic has acknowledged issues with Pokemon GO Plus on iOS 11. Basically, it amounts to the accessory not registering a button press until after the LED indicator light has flashed three times.

Niantic says it is exploring the situation. When a fix has been issued, we’ll let you know.


At the Tokyo Game Show earlier today, the primary winners announced for the Japan Game Awards 2017. Nintendo was a big winner at the event, especially due to Zelda: Breath of the Wild taking home the Grand Award.

Here’s the full roundup of awards:


As mentioned earlier today, Fire Emblem Heroes received new Special Maps to celebrate the upcoming launch of Fire Emblem Warriors. Watch some footage below.

There are some new Special Maps now available in Fire Emblem Heroes. The 5 new maps called “Warriors,” are a tie in event for Fire Emblem Warriors and feature inspired backgrounds and music straight from the game. Beating each individual map will earn you some orbs. There are also new Special Quests tied in for this event as well.

The “Warriors” maps and quests will be available until October 26th.

Pokemon GO is kicking off a special event later this week as we move from summer to fall. Get the full details from Niantic below.

With cool autumn nights quickly approaching in the Northern Hemisphere and sunny spring days arriving in the Southern Hemisphere, we thought it would be the perfect time to celebrate the coming equinox with an in-game event. New seasons mean new adventures!

From 1:00 P.M. PDT on September 22 to 1:00 P.M. PDT on October 2, 2017, you’ll have the opportunity to earn double Stardust for catching Pokémon and hatching Eggs as you walk around your neighborhood discovering new sights. While you’re out exploring, be sure to visit your local PokéStops and Gyms to collect special 2 km Eggs that have the opportunity to hatch Pokémon such as Chansey, Mareep, Larvitar, and more. You’ll also be able to get special boxes from the in-game shop that feature items like Lucky Eggs, Lure Modules, and all-new Super Incubators which hatch Eggs 1.5 times quicker!

Registering a new Pokémon to your Pokédex during this limited-time celebration will earn you triple the normal XP. So that makes this a very good time to battle against the Legendary Pokémon originally from the Johto region. Don’t forget that Raikou, Entei, or Suicune will each travel to a new part of the world on September 30, so make sure to battle the Legendary Pokémon currently in your area while you can!


Fire Emblem Heroes has been updated with new content once again. Players have access to a new Bound Hero Battle and Summoning Focus.

As for the Bound Hero Battle, heroes from Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade are featured in Special Maps. Orbs are available the first time you clear the battle. Hard and Infernal difficulties are included.

Continuing with the Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade theme, a new summoning focus has gone live. Ninian, Hawkeye, and one of their most important allies from Blazing Blade are here. You won’t have to use an Orb the first time you summon.

Here’s footage of today’s new content:

Apple released iOS 11 this week, but it’s causing a couple of issues for Miitomo users. Nintendo sent out a status update about the situation in a news post within the app today.

Currently, these are the two main problems:

– An error occurs that prevents the sharing of answers or QR Codes via Facebook
– An error occurs that prevents the sharing of answers, Miifotos, or QR Codes via Twitter

Nintendo is examining both of these issues (as well as an issue pertaining to smart devices with Twitter app version 7.7), and is already preparing a fix. An announcement will be sent out when a fix is ready.

The Team Match event is now live in Pokemon Duel. Players can join one of three teams – Venusaur, Charizard or Blastoise – and earn points by winning battles and opening Time Boosters. There are individual rewards for reaching certain point thresholds, as well as a Rare Metal EX, which will go to the team with the most points at the end of the event.


The next tempest trial titled Moment of Fate will be coming September 23rd and in order to prepare for this trial a new summoning focus based around it has become available. This focus includes Ike, Titania, Soren and Mist. So if you’re looking for a Path of Radiance character this could be your chance.
