Minecraft updated to Version 1.11.4, patch notes available

No new content, all fixes

Minecraft has gotten an update on Switch, bringing it to Version 1.11.4. Check out the patch notes for this update below.

- Fixed several crashes on Nintendo Switch that could occur during gameplay, especially surrounding villager job site blocks
- Fixed issues with Marketplace maps so ‘villager_v2’ works in command selectors again, targeting both V1 and V2 villagers

Additional Fixes from 1.11.3:

- Fixed a crash that could occur when mobs found the nearest attackable mob
- When converting from V1 to V2, villagers now keep their XP level
- Villagers cured of zombification can no longer change their profession if they have enough XP (MCPE-42348)
- Another fix for villagers changing their professions when they’re not supposed to
- Fixed pathfinding so when an entity can’t float, swim, or be amphibious, it can still walk at the bottom of water
- Fixed gamertags and gamerpics of Realms members not appearing on the members list
- The Realms members list no longer returns to the first page when navigating to another page
- When using commands, the villager and zombie_villager target selectors now target both V1 and V2 mob types

Realistic Pokemon artist shares some concept art he worked on for Detective Pikachu, including a push for Danny DeVito

What detective we could have had

RJ Palmer is the artist who worked on the 'realistic Pokemon' art series that landed him a job on the Detective Pikachu movie. Today Mr. Palmer has shared some concept art that he worked on for the film, including a look at what Danny DeVito might have looked like in the role of Detective Pikachu. I guess there really was a point in time when at least some people involved really wanted Mr. DeVito in the role!

One new screenshot for TOWN shared

Talk of the town

A couple days ago, we shared an interview snippet with Game Freak in which they mentioned focusing more on new, original ideas going forward. One of those new games would be TOWN, and while it's been radio silence for quite some time now, we do get one new screen to look at. Hopefully we hear some more about the game at this year's E3.

Dandy Dungeon: Legend of Brave Yamada gets official English announcement

Sounds dandy!

We already knew that Dandy Dungeon: Legend of Brave Yamada was coming to Switch, thanks to a listing on the BitSummit 7 Spirits event. Today we get the official English announcement, which most likely indicates an English release.

This is Dandy Dungeon as it’s always meant to be played: rebalanced for console release, and full of all of the monsters, loot, secrets, and surprises you could possibly want, plus brand new exclusive features!

Dandy Dungeon is the story of Yamada-kun (age 36), a programmer at a major game publisher. He hates his job. Alone in his apartment, deep into the night, he toils to create a game of his own: it’s an RPG, and he is the hero, Brave Yamada!

One day, he falls in love at first sight with his new neighbor Maria-chan. In an effort to nurture these feelings, he adds Princess Maria into his game!

Will Yamada-kun and Maria-chan find love?

Is destiny pre-programmed, or randomly generated? Is love a bug or a feature?

Find out in this unique, puzzling rogue-lite RPG, coming summer 2019 from Onion Games!

TT Isle of Man - launch trailer

Ride along the razor's edge

For bikers, there are two types of speed races: the Isle of Man TT and the rest. No other race is as gruelling for the motorbikes and demanding for the riders. Take up the challenge of the Snaefell Mountain course: all 37.73 miles faithfully reproduced with the champions and their bikes. Memorise each section of the course, round each bend to perfection, keep your concentration throughout the 6 laps, get the best time and write your name alongside the greatest champions.

Detective Pikachu writers on the film being considered canon, and whether Ash could appear in a sequel

Anything is possible

As far as Detective Pikachu's co-writers are concerned, the film is canon. The team took great care to make sure everything in this film fit in with the existing universe. Does that mean Ash could show up in a potential sequel? According to co-writer Banji Sammit in a ComicBook interview, it's not out of the realm of possibility.

“Obviously we can't speak for Legendary and the Pokemon Company. In our minds, this entire universe is fair game. When we were writing this movie, it was not only our goal but Rob [Letterman’s] goal, the studio's goal, everyone's goal, to really just focus on one movie. Tell a story. It has a beginning, a middle, and an end.”

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled's Adventure Mode detailed

Adventure Time!

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled is going to include an Adventure Mode to keep single-players occupied, and also to provide a way to learn the ins and outs of racing. In a Playstation Blog feature, Beenox goes over just what to expect in Adventure Mode.

In bringing the Adventure Mode back, we knew we had to hit all the elements that made the original so special. The challenges are the same — there are trophy races, boss races, relic races, token races, and gem cups. The characters are back — choose from Crash, Coco, Cortex, Polar, Pura, Tiny or any of the other starting lineup characters you remember from the original. And the thrill of earning new characters (like Ripper Roo and Pinstripe Pontoroo) is still a huge part of the fun.

However, we wanted to take things a step further for CTR Nitro-Fueled. Instead of just earning the boss characters like in the original, players will now earn something every time they win a race. Players will be getting new kart parts, character skins, or kart customization items with every victory. Also, players will now earn the boss characters immediately after they beat that boss, instead of after Gem Cups (which now unlock a new set of valuable prizes). This includes the ability to earn Nitros Oxide himself — though that is no easy task!

Epic releases Fortnite hotfix addressing blueprint equip time issues

Get it while it's hot

Some Fortnite players have noticed a glitch after the game's most recent update that causes their guns to go invisible when quickly swapping between edit and fire modes. It seems Epic is already on-top of this issue, and has deployed a hotfix to revert things to how they were prior to Version 9.10. No need to download any data, as the update is applied server-side.
