Pokemon Scarlet and Violet 7 Star Primarina Guide

The 7 Star Primarina Tera Raid Battle event for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is now live, and we’ve put together a guide explaining the best counters you can bring to take it down and claim its rewards for yourself. 

The new 7 Star Primarina event lasts until May 12, and it comes back from May 17 to 19. Primarina’s Tera Type is Fairy, and it knows Sparkling Aria, Moonblast, Psychic, and Sing. It also knows Encore and Surf as secondary moves. This Pokemon doesn’t actually boost its stats for this battle, but it does have some rather annoying status moves that we’ve prepared for. This is one of the easier 7 Star Tera Raid Battles, but you should still get ready as best you can.

Xenoblade 3 Mio scale figure

We have an update on the new Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Mio scale figure, including a release date, pre-orders, and photos. This was first revealed during Smile Fest 2022.

The figure is based on an original illustration drawn by Masatsugu Saito, the character designer of the series. The team behind it put a lot of care into the sculpting of the details and texture of Mio’s clothes. Additionally, the multilayered base features the Zephyr icon, which is the mark of her initial class.

Nintendo made its first official mention of new hardware this week, which will be announced within the fiscal year ending March 2025. However, the company still needs to sell Switch hardware and software as that’s its main source of revenue currently. 

Asked about whether announcing a Switch successor will impact sales momentum this, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa did tell one investor this week that there could be some impact. The company will look to keep sales going with new software and generating demand through other means such as those who have seen The Super Mario Bros. Movie.

Furukawa stated:

Another interesting mark if that Furukawa mentioned “game development will inevitably become longer, more complex, and more advanced.”
