As people begin to get their hands on the final version of Pokemon GO, footage is starting to come. Start out by watching a few minutes of gameplay below.

Update: Pokemon GO is now live on iOS in Australia here. APK for Android users is located here (via).

Pokemon GO is finally here. Following the game’s announcement last September, it’s now starting to live.

Currently, Pokemon GO is up on the Google Store for Android devices here. Note that it’s not yet live on iOS. Additionally, we’re hearing that the app has not yet been made available in all territories like the United States, but we’ll keep you updated as the situation develops.

Android users now have access to a new version of Miitomo. Earlier today, version 1.3.1 released. We haven’t seen any equivalent on iOS (at least for now), and given the version change, this likely implements some bug fixes.


We previously reported on an interview about Miitomo between Earthbound creator Shigesato Itoi and Miitomo producer Yoshi Sakamoto. The interview is split into multiple parts – a total of 6 will be released. Parts 3 and 4 are now available here.


The weekly update for Pokémon Shuffle is bringing a host of legendary Pokémon, including a new form for Giratina. The Giratina Origin Forme stage is an Escalation Battle, allowing players to earn better items and have a higher catch rate the more times they win. Furthermore, Registeel, Regice, Regirock, and Celebi are all getting repeat runs. All of these stages run until July 19th.

Finally, a once-a-day Jirachi challenge will begin tomorrow, July 6th, and will run through the 9th.


Miitomo is celebrating Splatoon’s final Splatfest in style. Starting today and continuing over the next few weeks, the app is gearing up for the big event with various promotions.

1. Splatfest Tees in the Miitomo Shop!

Until 7/25/2016 7:59 AM PT, Team Callie and Team Marie Splatfest Tees will be available in Miitomo Shop!

Update 2 (7/1): The second part is now live here. Looks like these are going up quicker than expected!

Original (6/30): Nintendo UK has put up a new transcript of a conversation held between Miitomo producer Yoshio Sakamoto and EarthBound creator Shigesato Itoi. The two go over the origins of the app that debuted a few months ago.
