Tips to Roll Over Regirock in Pokemon GO Raids

With Regice and Registeel defeated, only one member of this trio of Legendary Pokémon remains. Regirock will be appearing in Raid Battles at Gyms in Pokémon GO until September 20, 2018. You'll only have a limited time to add this Pokémon to your Pokédex, so don't delay. Be sure to bring your friends along with you when you challenge Regirock—you may earn some extra Premier Balls thanks to a recent update.

Regirock can be caught only with the Premier Balls you earn from defeating it, so you'll need your Pokémon to perform well in battle to maximize your chances. You can participate in Raid Battles even if you're not high-level or if your Pokémon aren't the strongest, but you'll have an easier time if you prepare. Check out our guide to training Pokémon in Pokémon GO to get your team up to speed, and then read on for some tips specific to eroding Regirock.

Surgeon Simulator releases a brand new Announcement Trailer for the upcoming Switch release

London, UK - 16th August 2018: Surgeon Simulator - the critically-acclaimed operation sim by Bossa Studios - recently confirmed its highly-speculated port for Nintendo Switch, having only hinted at the release earlier in July with an 18 second Teaser Trailer. Launching this Autumn and titled “Surgeon Simulator CPR” (Co-op Play Ready), Bossa Studios has now released the very first footage of the upcoming game in the form of a brand new Announcement Trailer; a gloriously gory live action feature, which brings with it a whole new meaning to the term ‘operating on the go’...

Taking on the role of Nigel Burke - a would-be surgeon with a less-than-conventional toolkit - the game sees players perform terrifying transplants in theatre, high-pressure procedures in an ambulance, and anti-gravitational operations in space! But it’s Surgeon Simulator’s notoriously difficult controls for which the game was originally celebrated, with previous ports on PC, PS4, PSVR and iOS spawning over 2 million fanmade instructional videos, not to mention a strong influencer following including PewDiePie, Fernanfloo and JackSepticEye.

Fully revived and feeling better-than-ever, the upcoming Nintendo Switch version takes advantage of the console’s much-lauded functionalities to create the most immersive surgeon experience yet. By snapping out a Joy-Con controller, players will be able to swap to motion controls at any time for nail-biting precision, while HD Rumble will help bring the full roster of tools - from hammers to hatchets, buzzsaws to laser pens - to life like never before!

Also taking advantage of Nintendo’s split Joy-Con support, players will be able to tag a second surgeon in at any time, whether it’s at home or on the go, to immediately launch local co-op play! Because sometimes you need a second opinion...

Containing all the original heart-in-your-mouth (or wherever else you decide to put it!) operations, including the additional teeth and eye transplants from the A&E Edition, Surgeon Simulator CPR also includes the highly-classified Alien Autopsy mode, too! Coupled with the console’s effortless portability and multitude of play options, it’s safe to say operating on the go’s never been easier!

Join Buka Entertainment in Hall 10.1, Booth A20, where press and public can play Redeemer: Enhanced Edition ahead of launch, and go hands-on with the first playable demo of 9 Monkeys of Shaolin.

To come out victorious you should be smarter and nimbler or… you can call in your trustworthy friend for help at a critical moment or use mysterious magic powers to win the day.

To deliver games as their best and to be sure they meet their ambitions development team asked for an additional time to polish both games. That’s why Redeemer: Enhanced Edition world premiere is postponed to fall 2018 for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch™ and Xbox One, and 9 Monkeys of Shaolin to the early winter 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch™, PC, macOS and Linux.
