It's beginning to seem like we're getting a new Pokemon UltraSun and UltraMoon trailer every few days. It was just last week that Nintendo debuted a new trailer showing off some of the alternate worlds players will visit in UltraSun and UltraMoon, and today, the topic of discussion is Z-Moves. Specifically, we're getting a look at the Z-Moves Necrozma's new forms will be able to use.
With Pokemon UltraSun and UltraMoon coming up next month, Sun and Moon are approaching the end of their run as the current mainline Pokemon games. Nintendo is supporting them up until the very end, though, launching a new mythical Pokemon promotion today. Unfortunately, your window to get this new Pokemon will be quite limited, and there will be some leg work involved as well.
Pokemon UltraSun and UltraMoon are still about six weeks out, but Nintendo is keeping the hype train rolling by releasing a new trailer today. While other trailers have showed us what's changed around Alola, this one invites us to jump through the "Ultra Wormhole" and explore distant worlds. These worlds seem to be the domain of the Ultra Beasts that have found their way to the Alola region.
It's a big day for Pokemon fans. Not only is Pokken Tournament DX launching on Nintendo Switch (read our review here), but Nintendo is also bringing Pokemon Gold and Silver to the Nintendo 3DS eShop. These re-releases follow the eShop launch of Pokemon Blue, Red, and Yellow, which were all released to celebrate Pokemon's 20th anniversary.
Between the upcoming releases of Pokken Tournament DX on the Switch, Pokemon Gold and Silver on the 3DS Virtual Console, and Pokemon UltraSun and UltraMoon on 3DS proper, we have a lot of Pokemon on the way. What better time, then, to introduce a new Pokemon-themed 2DS XL? Nintendo has done just that, and it has revealed that this special edition console will be here in time for the launch of Pokemon UltraSun and UltraMoon.
It wasn’t too long ago, less than month actually, when Nintendo revealed a massive list of indie games that will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Apparently it was just getting started. At its latest Nintendo Direct, the Japanese gaming giant shared an equally massive amount of news for the Switch again. But this time, to prove it hasn’t abandoned its other gaming handheld, it is also giving 3DS and 2DS owners some good news as well.
In case you missed it, Nintendo is planning a rather long Nintendo Direct broadcast for later today. Back when the live stream was announced on Monday, Nintendo said that it will cover the games coming to both the Switch and the 3DS over the next few months. A main focus of the show will be Super Mario Odyssey, so if you've been looking forward to that, you'll definitely want to tune in.
As rumored, Nintendo will indeed be hosting a new Nintendo Direct live stream this week. The company announced this Nintendo Direct broadcast today, shying away from getting too specific about what to expect. We do know, however, that the broadcast will clock in at 45 minutes long, so it definitely sounds like Nintendo will have a lot to show.
Pokemon and Fire Emblem fans might want to have a look at a pair of new bundles Nintendo revealed today. For the upcoming releases of Pokemon UltraSun/UltraMoon and Fire Emblem Warriors, Nintendo will have some limited edition releases that die-hard fans can purchase. As always, these releases will feature some extras for those who want to take home more than just the game.
Nintendo revealed today that Miiverse - a social network of sorts for Wii U and 3DS - will be shutting down soon. Given Nintendo's eagerness to stop producing the Wii U once the launch of the Switch was imminent, we probably should have seen this coming next. The disappointing part for many players will be the fact that the Switch doesn't really have a Miiverse of its own, and may not ever have one.
Beginning next month, we're going to see the return of a phenomenon that hasn't gripped the world in more than 25 years: Super Nintendo mania. Nintendo is set to release its SNES Classic Edition around the world next month, setting off what's sure to be frenzy as consumers rush to get one. That likely won't be the only SNES-themed product that will be in short supply, as Nintendo has revealed a New 3DS XL model that's designed to look like a Super Nintendo.
