Early footage is in showing SplatNet 2 with Splatoon 2, the app connectivity with Nintendo Switch Online. Have a look at the video below.


The Nintendo Switch Online app debuted a bit earlier than expected when it made a surprise appearance on the App Store and Google Play last night. At the time, however, you couldn’t do much.

The good news is that the Nintendo Switch Online app is now functional. The bad news is that you still can’t do much. Without a copy of Splatoon 2, it doesn’t offer any functionality. You should be able to use it come Friday – or if you receive a copy early.

Pokemon Duel has received a new update. The latest content addition features the Bug Gym Cup, available until July 26.

The latest cup features all Bug-type Movement 1 and 2 figures that receive an increase of 1 for movement. Fire-types get an Attack increase of 20 for each attack.

At the end of the event, players can receive trophies that will be displayed on the ranking screen. Fletchinder and Talonflame Figures are also being handed out as prizes.


The first hint for the next update coming to Pokémon Duel has just been revealed. The screenshot above shows a list of Halls you can select from the Single Player mode. It seems you will be able to pick a special mission like using all Unique figures or only figures that are UC or lower on specific stages. There will be more information about the update coming out on July 26th.


Miitomo has been updated with new content. Players can nab the latest items in the Miitomo Drop stage, “Fashion is a breeze! Fresh Looks #2”.

Available items include:

– Polar bear print tee
– Penguin pal
– Snowy outfit hood
– Snowy outfit

Users can select Miitomo Drop stages from the Shop tab. Miitomo coins or game tickets are needed to play.


The Nintendo Switch Online app looks to be launching slightly early. Nintendo had intended to release it alongside Splatoon 2 on Friday, but it’s already appearing around the world.

For folks on iOS in the United States, it’s up on the App Store here. The Google Play equivalent is here. The Nintendo Switch Online app is also being distributed across the rest of the world.

You can download the app, though servers are currently undergoing maintenance. It should hopefully be fully live soon.

Niantic is currently rolling out a new update for Pokemon GO. Players on iOS will have access to version 1.39.0, while Android users will be able to download version 0.69.0.

The latest update puts in a few additions, improvements, and fixes. Full patch notes are below. When it’s live, we’ll update this post.

Fire Emblem Heroes added in new content today highlighted by the addition of the new Grand Hero Battle against Berkut from Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. View some footage below.

The new Grand Hero Battle will be against Berkut from Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. You will be able to recruit a bronze or silver Berkut depending on the difficulty you challenge him at from hard to infernal. You will have until July 25th to obtain Berkut.

On the official Japanese Fire Emblem Heroes Twitter it has been announced that the next character players will be able to face off against is Berkut. Berkut will be available to battle starting tomorrow. The heroes that provide bonuses in the arena will also be switched to the recent Fire Emblem Echoes focus heroes. Good luck in trying to recruit Berkut tomorrow.
