Kyoto Shimbun published a new article about Nintendo’s mobile plans yesterday, which included comments from president Tatsumi Kimishima. Sankei has now followed up with its own report.

Kimishima previously mentioned to Kyoto Shimbun that the company was looking at two or three mobile titles each year starting in 2017. However, Sankei has a different quote from him in which he says that Nintendo is always considering pushing out three, and maybe even more than that per year.

Niantic has announced a new event for Pokemon GO to celebrate the holidays.

First, between December 25 and January 3, players will have a greater chance of finding Eggs that hatch Togepi, Pichu, and other recently found Pokemon from the Johto region. Special Pikachu wearing festive hats will also be staying around longer, as they’ll be more easily encountered during the holiday event.

If that wasn’t enough, beginning on December 30 through January 8, players will be more likely to encounter the first Pokemon and their Evolutions. This specifically applies to Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, and Venusaur, as well as Charmander, Charmeleon, and Charizard, plus Squirtle, Wartortle, and Blastoise. Lure Modules will also last for 60 minutes instead of 30 minutes.
