Niantic files suit against multiple Pokemon GO hacked app creators

Cheaters never prosper

Niantic is out to defend Pokemon GO from people they feel are ruining the game. The company has filed suit against roughly 20 so-called hackers for their work on PokeGo++, an "unauthorized derivative version" of Pokemon GO. Niantic believes PokemonGo++ infringes on intellectual property rights, and also gives players an unfair advantage over those who are playing the regular version of the game.

Tetris Creator Alexey Pajitnov has played, and loves Tetris 99

Could there be any higher praise?

There have been so, so many Tetris spin-offs, remakes, and revamps over the years. It's certainly hard to keep track of them all. To be something new and interesting with Tetris, you really have to stand out. Tetris 99 is definitely one of those standout titles, as it takes the core of Tetris and gives us a new way to enjoy multiplayer.

Plenty of people are getting enjoyment out of Tetris 99, and that includes Tetris Creator Alexey Pajitnov. In an interview with Nintendo Life, Mr. Pajitnov talks about his time with the title.

I love the game. Unfortunately, my son stole the Switch from me [laughter], so I can’t really enjoy it. But as soon as he gives it back to me, I will play again and again. That’s one of the best games of Tetris of the last year. I really like what was done.

If you're wondering, no...Mr. Pajitnov has not managed to get a Tetris 99 Victory Royale just yet. He's placed third a couple times, so there's hope!

Mario & Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games lets you use both motion and button controls, gives characters appropriate outfits for their events

Freshly dressed

You'll be able to play Mario & Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games the way you want to. In an interview with IGN, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games producer Nobuya Ohashi mentioned that both motion controls and traditional controls will be included in the experience.

“Motion control is definitely featured in this game. We are really excited to feature and utilize great parts about the Switch for this game. For instance, you don’t just have to use the Joy-Con. Obviously the Joy-Con is going to be a big part of the game. For instance, for surfing and skateboarding you’ll use the tilting mechanism to move the characters during the game, but also you can enjoy the games using the button mode…so there’s many, many ways of playing a lot of these mini games for this new game.

For example, if you’re using the Joy-Con mode, you can enjoy disc throwing as one of the games and you could actually experience throwing the disc, by using your body, which is a big part of motion control. There’s also boxing that you can experience – really experience the punching motion.”

One big chance with this installment in the series comes with costumes. Characters will now wear outfits that are appropriate for the sport they're in. Yes, that includes Mario as well.

“Each of the characters are wearing different costumes, depending on the sporting event they are competing in. For instance, in the previous games Mario would always be wearing his overalls, even if he’s in water, but this time, we changed that, we actually gave him trunks, so he can actually swim in the water correctly.”

Professional wrestler Cody Rhodes applauds the reveal of Banjo-Kazooie for Smash Bros. Ultimate

Cody's got some good taste

As we've said in the past, professional wrestler Cody Rhodes is a big Nintendo fan. He loves Zelda in particular, but has shown interest in all of Nintendo's franchises over the years. Today he took to Twitter to share the following tweet about Smash Bros. Ultimate.


The reveal of Banjo-Kazooie for Smash Bros. Ultimate is one of those moments that will go down in gaming history. It was a reveal that so many wanted, but none were sure it could ever happen. The pure joy that reveal brought is something that'll stick with people for years to come.

Thanks to MrThee for the heads up!

Amazon Mexico adds listing for Hollow Knight: Silksong

We can't be 100% sure that the listing is accurate, as it could be some sort of mix-up with the retail release of the original Hollow Knight. We'll reach out to Team Cherry for comment.
