It was previously announced that Daemon X Machina would be receiving some collaboration DLC. First up on the docket, as revealed by Marvelous today, is a partnership with the anime Eureka Seven. Players can change their appearance to match that of Renton Thurston as well as use Nirvash as an Arsenal.

It appears that this DLC (free, by the way) is primarily appearance-based. There are no real changes regarding stats.

The Wild Area in Pokemon Sword and Shield lets players walk right up to any Pokemon they see on screen for a battle. As we heard previously, some of these creatures could be at a much higher level than anyone in your party.

USgamer reports that after stepping into the Wild Area for the first time, “you quickly come across Pokemon who are ten or fifteen levels above you” and are known as as “very strong Pokemon.” If you attempt to catch one, you’ll be told that’s not possible. However, you can take them down and earn a significant amount of experience. They also “respawn quickly”.

As for shiny Pokemon, USgamer shares the following:

Yacht Club Games has finally set a release date for all of the upcoming Shovel Knight products. Shovel Knight: King of Cards, Shovel Knight Showdown, the physical version of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove for Switch, the new amiibo 3-pack, and Gold Edition amiibo all launch on December 10.

Yacht Club wrote on its website today:

The buildup to Super Nintendo World continues. Construction has been in full swing leading up to the opening in time for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, and some new art has now apparently surfaced.

Xtrend Nikkei first posted the image online as part of a general article about Super Nintendo World. The piece has not been confirmed as official, though it matches previously-leaked photographs of the park’s model.

A number of new elements are shown in the supposed piece of art. These include the actual ride vehicles for Yoshi’s Adventure, augmented reality binoculars, and more. Orlando ParkStop was kind enough to label all of the important aspects, which you can see above.
