Now that today’s Animal Crossing Direct has concluded, Nintendo sent out an official announcement about the new update available for New Leaf. Read it in full below for a full rundown of information.

REDMOND, Wash., Nov. 2, 2016 – In a new Nintendo Direct video presentation, Nintendo threw a rustic party for a free downloadable software update for the Animal Crossing: New Leaf game. The free update launched this morning alongside the Nintendo Direct, and will also launch as part of a packaged version with the full game called Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems in December. This updated version of the classic Animal Crossing: New Leaf game adds amiibo functionality, which opens up a whole neighborhood of fun new possibilities. By tapping the new Welcome amiibo cards for Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo launching Dec. 2 and the 16 previously released Animal Crossing amiibo figures, you can welcome villagers in their very own RVs to a special new RV campground.

“This new update will appeal to people who never picked up the original game, and all its new features will excite fans of the Animal Crossing franchise,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The update breathes new life into Animal Crossing: New Leaf and offers more fun compatibility for your amiibo figures and cards.”

Update: The DLC and updates are now live in North America.

Original: In Europe and Japan, Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors Legends players will find new DLC and updates awaiting them. Nintendo and Koei Tecmo have released the final DLC based on A Link Between Worlds. Additionally, Hyrule Warriors is now up to version 1.12.0 while Legends is at version 1.6.0.

Head past the break for the full patch notes. We’ll update this post when the DLC and updates are live in North America.

Pokemon GO appears to be getting daily quests, based on new information players have found through data mining.

After poking through the app’s latest update, Niantic is planning three types of quests. These include “First Catch of The Day” as well as “First PokeStop of the Day”.

At the moment, it’s unclear what rewards daily quests will provide, though code references incubators. Also, while we don’t know when this feature is going live, it seems that Niantic can easily turn it on at any point.

We’ll let you know when we hear anything official about daily quests in Pokemon GO.


It’s a big day for Minecraft: Wii U Edition, as the game is being updated with a bunch of new content. You’ll be able to get your hands on the following:

– Halloween Battle Map DLC
– Campfire Tales Skin Pack
– Battle Map Pack 4 DLC
– Spooky Bundle, containing the Halloween Mash-up Pack, Campfire Tales Skin Pack and Halloween Battle Map

Minecraft: Wii U Edition is also getting patch 14. Head past the break for the full patch notes.

Update (10/24): This update is now officially live on both iOS and Android.

Original (10/23): Niantic is preparing yet another patch for Pokemon GO. When it’s available, players will find that the game has been updated to version 1.13.3 on iOS and 0.43.3 on Android.

Pokemon GO will be adding in a low battery indicator for Pokemon GO Plus. Also incoming are Pokemon type icons on the information screen.

Here’s the full notice from Niantic:

Now that Shantae is out now in Runbow as a DLC/update addition, we have some footage of the new character. Check out a few minutes of gameplay below.

FAST Racing Neo recently added in some new DLC. If you’re in Europe, you can download a patch that address a small issue with the unlock. The problem involved the DLC not being permanently unlocked after purchase, requiring players to revisit the eShop.

FAST Racing Neo’s latest update isn’t live in North America and Japan just yet. However, that should be changing very soon.


Runbow’s latest update is now live. Players can download version 1.3 to play as Shantae as of today. On top of that, 13AM Games implemented a number of new fixes.

In other Runbow news, the Deluxe retail version is now moved to November 1. It’s thankfully a rather small delay.

Head past the break for the full Runbow version 1.3 patch notes.

Power Disc Slam’s new update is now confirmed for release next Thursday. This will bring the game up to version 1.10.

In North America, the new version will be a standard update. In Europe though, players will need to re-download Power Disc Slam entirely due to an updated USK rating.
