title update

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment has been out on Switch since the system launched at the start of March. However, Wii U and 3DS will soon be receiving the expansion as well.

Specter of Torment is set to release as a free update to Shovel Knight this Friday on Wii U in North America. 3DS will follow next Tuesday.


Ratalaika Games has pushed out a new update for Blasting Agent: Ultimate Edition. It should be out now on both Wii U and 3DS in North America, with Europe to follow on April 20.

This will be the final patch on Wii U. Explaining the decision, Ratalaika said:

“After some deep thought we’ve decided to move on from it, the effort it required to adjust a game to it with the needed quality wasn’t matching what we were getting back from it these days. This has been a hard choice for us due to it was the first console we worked on, but we wanted to move to other adventures on Nintendo…”

Here’s a rundown as to what’s included with the update:

Update 2: This is something we’re less certain about, but Wolf Link is apparently “fixed” as well. We’re not entirely sure how widespread this was, but Wolf Life was sometimes summoned with full hearts; rather than the default three, even if the Cave of Trials from Twilight Princess was not played.

Update: Bumped to the top. Some reports are surfacing that the infinite arrows glitch has been fixed. In case you’re wondering, it involves the following:

Original: Last night, Nintendo brought out a third update for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. All players can download version 1.1.2. Unfortunately, Nintendo didn’t elaborate on specifics, only stating that it implements adjustments “to make for a more pleasant gaming experience.”

So what’s included here? Initial impressions indicate that the frame rate hasn’t been improved unlike last time. However, Nintendo may have addressed a glitch with one particular boss.

The previously-announced update for Yo-kai Watch 3 was said to be on track for this spring. Today, Level-5 announced that it’s launching very soon – this Friday in fact. Yo-kai Watch 3 will be updated to version 3.0.

The upcoming patch adds in a bunch of additional content. Players will have access to new Enma, quests, and yo-kai, along with new Dungeon and Guardians for the Busters Treasure Mode. Other features include fishing at the port town Nagisaki. All of the update details are located here.

Update: Serebii now reports that the balance updates for Venusaur, Drapion, Bulbasaur, and Weezing are included. Eleven new figures were added to the Boosters as well.

More details:

– The three EX figures are Virizion, Sceptile, and Trevenant
– Rare figures are Grovyle, Lilligant & Crobat
– The UC figures are Skorupi, Swellow, Chikorita, Phantump & Petilil
– Four new Plates, focusing on Grass, Flying, Bug & Ghost-type Pokemon
– Orange Time Booster added that may appear through League Matches until April 26; guaranteed to hold Grass-type or Poison-type Pokemon
– A Sextuple Booster that gives 6 figures with at least one guaranteed EX until April 19 for 300 Gems is available

Original: Pokemon Duel’s latest update is here. There may not be much to it, but version 3.0.6 can now be downloaded. The update notes merely state that bugs have been fixed.

While that may not be terribly exciting, Pokemon GO should be receiving a balance patch very, very soon. You can read about all of the details here.


Last year’s River City Ransom game in Japan, River City Ransom SP, was given a major update today. The new version 1.1 update has added two-player co-op and more.

Below are the patch notes, courtesy of Gematsu:

  • A local two-player co-op mode has been added.
  • A feature that allows you to check the events that occur on the lower screen map with icons has been added.
  • A feature that displays cleared events from the event encyclopedia in the memo menu has been added.
  • A feature that allows you to collectively sell equipment at the second-hand shop has been added.
  • A feature that allows you to collectively purchase items has been added.
  • Bug fixes.

And a trailer:


Nintendo has distributed the new Fire Emblem Heroes update, bringing the game up to version 1.2.0. It’s out now on both iOS and Android.

Below are the patch notes:

Update: Nintendo’s official statement is the same as the last patch: “Adjustments have been made to make for a more pleasant gaming experience.”

Original: Following the new update released at the end of March, another new patch has just been distributed for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Players can download version 1.1.2 right now.

The last Zelda: Breath of the Wild update introduced performance improvements, enhancing the game’s frame rate on Switch in particular. As of now, patch notes for today’s download are not yet available. We’ll keep an eye out on something official from Nintendo.

Thanks to Billy for the tip.

Several months after it appeared on the Wii U eShop, Twisted Fusion is getting an update. Version 1.1 is already in Nintendo’s hands for approval.

The update adds new features such as a Retro Zoom mode, crouching and sliding, and more. RPG damage indicators have also been added in along with updated HUD graphics, more detailed towers, and a performance boost.

Leuvsion didn’t say when the patch will be ready. Since it has already been submitted though, the wait shouldn’t be too long.


An update can now be downloaded for Urban Trial Freestyle 2. Version 1.1.0 is out for all players who own the game.

Official patch notes are below:

– Corrected position of the stunts and adjusted scoring in Stunt Mode
– Reworked Decors and the Camera in the Level Editor
– Tweaked difficulty of the Challenge Tracks
– Minor bug fixes

Urban Trial Freestyle 2 has only been distributed in Europe thus far. The title should be releasing in North America soon, though it’s unclear if and when the update will be offered.
