Kellogg's is no stranger to gaming-related cereal, as they worked with Nintendo on Super Mario Cereal not that long ago. Now the brand is tying up with Microsoft to release Minecraft 'Creeper Crunch' cereal.
Minecraft Creeper Crunch is a cinnamon-flavored cereal that features square crunchy bits and 'Creeper Bit' marshmallows. Each box also comes with a code for 10 clothing items in Minecraft.
Minecraft Creeper Crunch is set to release in August 2020 in the United States, and it'll be $4 for an 8oz box, or $5.69 for 12 ounces.

By now, most Nintendo fans know that Brie Larson is a diehard supporter just like us. Sure, she teamed up with Nintendo to officially promote Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but she was a fan long before that. She's confirmed that tidbit in multiple interviews, and that includes a new discussion in the latest episode of Hot Ones.
In the video above, Larson talks about her fondness for Super Mario 3D Land, Paper Mario, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Nintendo in general. You can hear the discussion at the 6:54 mark.
Vblank recently revealed that Shakedown Hawaii was coming to the Wii, but now we see that Retro City Rampage DX is getting a physical Wii release as well. The physical option is set to go live on July 9th, 2020 at 1 PM ET, and is priced at $30. There will be just 3,000 copies to go around, so don't wait long to snag yours!
This version of the game is actually going to include a new content update that Vblank is calling Retro City Rampage+. That same content is available today for the Switch and 3DS versions of the game. It includes a host of changes to the visuals, HUD, user interface, camera, screen resolution, and more. You can get full details about the update here.

Last we heard from the developer of Silver Falls: 3 Down Stars, things weren't looking all that good. The game was struggling with performance issues on 3DS, sales were low, and a much-needed patch was caught in limbo. Thankfully in today's update, things are going much better.
The developer of the Silver Falls series has shared a new video detailing all the things in the works, and we've grouped together all the tidbits below.
- Silver Falls: 3 Down Stars will come to Switch eventually
- Silver Falls: Deadly Shadows is coming to Switch as well
- a standalone chapter called Silver Falls: Episode Watchtower coming to Switch as well
- the game's story takes place within Silver Falls: 3 Down Stars
- this will not be a full-sized game
- Undertakers is heading to 3DS
- Ghoulbusters is in the works as well, and could head to both 3DS and Switch
- Silver Falls: 3 Down Stars next update fixes a lot of things, adds new costumes, new weapons, a new character, and more
- that update should see launch sometime after the next two weeks
Did you know that there's a service where companies can actually work with kind-hearted hackers in order to suss out issues with their hardware and software? That's what the HackerOne program is, and Nintendo has been a part of it for awhile now.
Over on the HackerOne website, users were able to pick apart the 3DS and Switch to find vulnerabilities, which they could then report to Nintendo. You can see Nintendo's mission statement for hackers below.
Nintendo’s goal is to provide a secure environment for our customers so that they can enjoy our games and services. In order to achieve this goal, Nintendo is interested in receiving vulnerability information that researchers may discover regarding Nintendo’s platforms.
Hackers that found important issues were actually paid for their findings, giving people quite an inventive to track problems down. Up to this point in time, Nintendo has been interested in both 3DS and Switch bugs, but moving forward, it appears Nintendo is dropping 3DS bounties.
Currently, in the context of the HackerOne program, Nintendo is only interested in vulnerability information regarding the Nintendo Switch™ family of systems and is not seeking vulnerability information regarding other Nintendo platforms, network service, or server-related information.
That second part of Nintendo's message was echoed in emails sent to HackerOne members. The email stated 3DS is being dropped, while the effort for Switch continues. Looks like Nintendo themselves are finally looking to wrap things up with the 3DS.
