Aside from the latest Miitomo Drop additions, there’s also a new Everybody Answers question.

If you answer the question while it’s active, you’ll be provided with Miitomo Platinum Points on My Nintendo.


Pokémon Shuffle has gotten its usual weekly update for both mobile and 3DS. Most importantly is a brand new Safari event, which will run until July 5th and gives players the chance to catch Shellder, Cloyster, Pidove, Tranquill and Unfezant, plus a chance for special Shiny versions of Magikarp and Gyarados.

There’s another chance to get Gyrados, though, as both a stage for it and Landorus Therian Forme are getting repeat runs until July 5th. Furthermore, a Tornadus Incarnate Forme stage has begun a repeat run, which gets easier with every attempt (but can only be played once a day, and only until June 28th).

The Gyrados love isn’t set to stop, though, as next week is set to bring a competition for Mega-Gyrados. Best get to catching both it and something super-effective for the challenge next week…

TechCrunch is among the outlets to have interviewed an executive from Nintendo. The publication caught up with Charlie Scibetta, Nintendo of America’s senior director of corporate communications this past week.

TechCrunch started out by asking about how Nintendo approaches E3. Regarding that, Scibetta explained:

“We announced about a month ago that it would be a Zelda only game for us. And we also announced that Treehouse Live would be the primary way that we communicated with the public. here’s always speculation at a show like E3, but for us, we stayed true to what we intended to do.”

“Every year we look at it fresh and don’t think about what we did the year before. It’s about what we want to talk about this year and how we want to get the word out. For future years, it could be an execution like we did this time, we could go back to a presentation, we could do more Treehouse Live, we could go to a digital event, we could do something new.“

Nintendo UK is now taking pre-orders for the Pokemon GO Plus device. You can reserve it right here. We also have a look at the packaging, posted above.

For those that missed it, Pokemon GO Plus can be pre-ordered on Amazon US here. It’s on Amazon Canada here.
