Last March, a new Pokemon smartphone game known as Pokemon Comaster launched in Japan. It’s now been localized for North America and Europe as “Pokemon Duel”.

For those who haven’t heard about it previously, here’s a lengthy overview:

Pokémon Duel is a strategy board game that uses Pokémon figures. Build a deck with your favorite figures and then leap into a League Match!

The rules are simple! The object is to be the first player to get one of your figures to your opponent’s goal. How will you get to the goal? You’ll need to carefully choose your route! In duels, you and your opponent take turns moving your figures. Set up a strategic formation and attack your opponent, or simply block their path—it’s all about tactics!

In duels, your deck is composed of 6 Pokémon figures. There are all kinds of figures, each with different moves and abilities. Keep this in mind as you build your own custom deck!

Make use of your custom deck and the AI! The AI is a reliable ally who will determine good moves and take your turn for you. Make full use of the AI and crush your opponents!

You can find Pokemon Duel on iOS here and Android here. It’s free-to-play, but there are in-app microtransactions of course.

As you probably know, a vote is currently underway for the upcoming Fire Emblem Heroes mobile game. Fans can vote for one character from the whole Fire Emblem series each day up until January 31st. The top ranking male and female characters will be added to Fire Emblem Heroes wearing a special outfit, while the top 10 male and female characters will receive special calendar wallpapers. The official Fire Emblem Heroes Twitter account revealed the current standings of the vote as of today:

  1. Lyn (Blazing Blade)
  2. Lucina (Awakening)
  3. Ike (Path of Radiance)

This would mean that if the vote were to end today, Lyn and Ike in special outfits would be added to Fire Emblem Heroes.

According to the latest data from mobile app store market intelligence group Sensor Tower, Super Mario Run has slipped out of the top 50 grossing iOS apps in the U.S. It’s now sitting at the 52nd spot.

One significant reason for Super Mario Run’s decline on the charts is due to the way it handles monetization. Rather than offering a free-to-play model like the upcoming Fire Emblem Heroes, Mario instead is a one-time $10 payment.
