if you’d like to get these games, you can do so here with the Teslagrad Power Pack which includes both of them!
It has been revealed that the Pikachu Talk app, which allows users to have conversations with fan favorite Pikachu, will no longer be accessible on Google Home/Assistant devices. Starting from June 13th, users will no longer be able to enjoy chatting with Pikachu on Google Home speakers, Chromecast with Google TV, and other Google Assistant-enabled devices.
At this point, if you attempt to engage Pikachu through your Google Home speaker or the Google Assistant app on Android or iOS devices, you will receive a message indicating the app’s unavailability after the date mentioned earlier. This development comes as Google has decided to remove third-party voice apps and games from their Home/Assistant platform.
It is important to note, however, that Pikachu Talk will continue to be accessible on Amazon Alexa devices, so if you own one of these, you’ll be able to continue enjoying some engaging conversations with Pikachu.
We salute you Pikachu Talk app, we will always remember your incredible performance of the Happy Birthday song!

New Rune Factory games revealed, platforms yet to be confirmed
East Version or West Version?
Two new games for the Rune Factory series were announced during today’s Marvelous Games Showcase, these titles being ‘Rune Factory: Project Dragon’ and ‘Rune Factory 6’.
Rune Factory: Project Dragon is a spinoff set in the eastern lands showing a brand new artstyle to the series inspired in Japanese aesthetics. These lands have been mentioned in previous games, but this is the first time players will be able to explore them and their culture. The game is set to deliver a unique experience separate from other titles, while expanding on the familiar mechanics everyone expects. Dragons will also play a big role in this new game, but details were not shared to avoid spoiling the surprises.
Rune Factory 6, the next title in the main series, will take place in the western continent of Adonea. No more details were shared about this entry, but they did share that since one game is set on the East and the other one on the West, they are taking the series to unexplored territory.
It hasn’t been confirmed if these titles will be available on Switch yet, but we are hopeful considering the previous game, Rune Factory 5, did come to Switch last year.
Two new entries in the 'Story of Seasons' series announced
I'm going to have so many farms
While we wait for Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life, Marvelous announced today during their Games Showcase 2023 that two new entries in the series are being developed.
The first game, simply known as STORY OF SEASONS for now, will provide a more traditional gameplay that the series is known for, but with the promise that they’ll be creating an entertaining farming experience that will reach more players than ever before. This is being done by putting extra efforts into the visual presentation of the game, making the farm and environments stand out.
The second game, known as A STORY OF SEASONS You Can Play With Everyone for now, will focus on farming with friends.
No further details were shared for either of these games and while Switch versions were not confirmed, we’re hopeful that the games will be coming to the console since other games in the series are available there as well.

You can still participate in Tera Raid Battles against this Chesnaught if you’ve already caught it to obtain other rewards—including significant amounts of Exp.
