Nintendo’s maintenance for next week has started to populate. Thus far, Wii U and 3DS will be impacted during one session, while the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls will be affected a bit later on.

Here’s the schedule as it stands right now:

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker made it to both Switch and 3DS yesterday. To celebrate, Super Mario Run has kicked off a new celebration.

During the weekend, the items you can receive from the Super Bonus Game of Remix 10 will feature only items related to Toad and Toadette. They are as follows:

We have several news updates on the Pokemon GO front.

First up, the next Community Day has been confirmed. Eevee will be featured for August 2018 – specifically August 11 and August 12. Eevee will appear in the wild more frequently for three hours each day.

Niantic is making waves today for a new Pokemon GO teaser. To celebrate the game’s anniversary, a piece of artwork – depicted above – was shared with the community. Fans have quickly noticed that Gen 4 starters Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup are included.

This is the first time that Niantic has given an indication about the arrival of Gen 4 Pokemon in Pokemon GO, though the company has done so in a low-key fashion. It’s not yet clear when we’ll be seeing the latest creatures in the game.


The next Tempest Trials+ event coming to Fire Emblem Heroes has been detailed. Called “Sweet Dreams”, it’s focused on the various Summer-themed units. The bonus units are Linde: Summer Rays, Tiki: Beachside Scion, Takumi: Prince at Play, Camilla: Tropical Beauty, Tana: Noble and Nimble, Corrin: Novice Vacationer, Gaius: Thief Exposed and Marth: Enigmatic Blade. Marth: Enigmatic Blade is also (once again) the unit reward in this Tempest Trials+,  at 15,000 points. Two other rewards are Flashing Blade and Spd Ploy seals. Tempest Trials+: Sweet Dreams will run from July 15 until July 24th.

Also, 10 orbs were sent out as an apology to all players today because of the issues some had with the recent Summoning Focus.

More new villagers are on the way to Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Nintendo shared the image above on Twitter a few minutes ago, teasing the latest additions. This new set of three should be coming to the mobile title within the next couple of days.


Pokemon GO is hosting the next round of Professor Willow’s Global Challenge this weekend. The event starts July 14, and lasts through July 15.

The challenge involves meeting the requirements during Pokemon GO Fest in Chicago. If each area achieves its respective goals, Candy-related bonuses will unlock starting July 16. This includes bonuses for catching Pokemon and participating in Raid Battles. Trainers can also unlock a bonus to reduce the distance needed to hatch Eggs.

Assuming all goals are reached, players will be able to receive up to five free Raid passes when they spin a Photo Disc at a Gym during Zapdos Day. On July 21, Zapdos will be appear in Raid Battles around the world for a three-hour period. All Zapdos here will know the Fast Attack Thundershock, and there’s a chance you’ll encounter a shiny version.


The next update for Super Mario Run is now available. On both iOS and Android, version 3.0.11 is live.

Nintendo states that ease of play has been improved. Additionally, some bug fixes have been implemented.

A couple of updates regarding Fire Emblem Heroes: first up, the Raven & Lucius Bound Hero Battle is back until July 22nd. Beat the various difficulty levels to get orbs and clear the corresponding quests requiring you to use Alfone and Fjorm to get even more orbs.

A new map has been added to Tactics Drills under the Skill Studies section: Spd Ploy and the Forecast.

Finally, a very small update was released today that fixes the description of the Summer’s Breath skill used by Tiki: Beachside Scion.

Pokemon GO still has many new Pokemon to add. During a live stream last night, Chrales showed off a number of upcoming creatures uncovered by digging through the game’s code.

Here’s a look at the full set with regular and shiny forms:
