Overcooked: Special Edition devs looking into reports of framerate issues

Coming from an Overcooked dev...

Just to provide some clarification on FPS with Overcooked. On console (Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Switch) the game is set to run at 30fps. PC is a little bit different as you can enable V-Sync which mixes things up a bit. So in a nutshell we expect Overcooked to run at a solid 30fps on Switch, we're also looking into reports of the game having instances where it isn't hitting this benchmark. We are watching & listening, fear not and thanks all for your support.

Some people have been reporting issues with the game running a bit sluggish and causing their Switch to really fire up the fans and make a lot of noise. Others haven't had any issues at all. If there's a patch released or another statement on the matter, we'll be sure to bring that to you.

Golf Story still slated for Summer release on Switch

We haven't heard much on Golf Story since the initial reveal, but it looks like things are still on-track for the Summer release. As soon as there's new details, we'll be sure to share.

Pokemon Shuffle celebrates its 2-year anniversary with in-game goodies

Pokémon Shuffle Mobile is two years old, and as part of the special occasion, a variety of new in-game bonuses and goodies are on the way!

More Alolan Pokémon will be making their way to Pokémon Shuffle Mobile with Tapu Koko (from August 1) and Tapu Lele (from August 15) appearing for the first time to take on in Ultra Challenges.

Starting August 1, challenges will include extra chances to be rewarded with generous drops such as 3x Mega Speedups. All these goodies will be available in the iPhone, iPad and Android versions of Pokémon Shuffle Mobile as well as in the Nintendo 3DS version, Pokémon Shuffle.

LEGO Worlds confirmed for Sept. 5th release

Well, looks like those retailer release dates we shared recently were pretty damn close. Good to know we get the DLC packs in there as well. Let's hope the DLC support continues long after the game launches.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle - quick gameplay clip

I am very ready to sit down with this game and have it kick my ass. I suck at these type of games, but I always have fun with them. I just need a long, LOOOOOOOOOOOONG time to figure out my next move!

A look at Hey! Pikmin's humorous amiibo descriptions

Pokemon Sun/Moon - Rejuvenate Old Favorites with Mega Evolution

An extra burst of power from Mega Evolution can help you defeat your toughest enemies—as long as you have the right Mega Stones. You'll only be able to find a few Mega Stones while travelling around the Alola region, but you can supplement your supply of Mega Stones by entering some special codes. This month's code is for the Abomasite, Aggronite, Manectite, and Tyranitarite Mega Stones, which can help Abomasnow, Aggron, Manectric, and Tyranitar Mega Evolve. There were also special codes released in April, May, and June, so check out those links if you need to catch up.

Each of this month's marvelous Mega-Evolved Pokémon can be extremely powerful under the right circumstances, so we'll break down how to take each one to the next level. But please note that you won't be able to catch these Pokémon in the Alola region. You can transfer them through Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter if you teamed up with them during your previous adventures, but you'll have to make some trades with your friends if you didn't.

You'll need the Key Stone for your Z-Ring in Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon before your Pokémon will be able to Mega Evolve. Continue exploring Poni Island if you haven't already acquired this Key Item. Your adventures in Alola will nearly be complete once your Pokémon can Mega Evolve, so we'll focus on top tactics for the tough battles you might face against other players or at the Battle Tree. And don't forget that only one of your Pokémon can Mega Evolve per battle!
