  • Animal Crossing Pocket Camp released a day earlier than scheduled, and it currently has five stars on the iOS App Store with 95K ratings. I’ve been enjoying it, however, the title has been plagued with connection issues since launch. The AC team have gifted everyone 20 lead tickets as an apology.

  • Blaster Master Zero has been updated to version 1.5 which adds the new Blaster Battle Mode. Blaster Mode lets players choose from any of the playable characters and face off in 1-on-1 battles. It’s possible to choose from different parameters, and each character’s Sophia III vehicle has different weapons.

    • New music tracks
    • New level cap limit (from level 50 to level 99)
    • More Amiibo support
