Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

Mobile Catch ‘Em All Pokémon GO is hosting several special events throughout the month of March, including five-star Legendary Raids every weekend – including Shiny Legendaries.

  • Darkrai Special Raid Weekend takes place March 6 – 9.
  • Altered Forme Giratina Special Raid Weekend is from March 13 – March 16.
  • Cobalion Special Raid Weekend will happen from March 20 to March 23.
  • Lugia Special Raid Weekend is scheduled for March 27 to March 30.

All raids begin at 8 am Friday and end 10 pm Monday, local time.

In addition, a new story event, A Drive to Investigate, will take place March 20 to March 23, featuring the arrival of Genesect. The event will include a limited time Story Event where you’ll encounter Genesect – but tickets must be purchased to participate.

Tickets cost $7.99 and can be purchase in-game between March 20 and March 26. Tickets also include battle passes, incubators, TMs, star pieces, and more research objectives that lead to special encounters, including Durant, Scizor, and other Bug and Steel-type pokémon.

During the special event everyone can earn double Stardust rewards from catching and hatching pokémon. Karrablast and Shelmet will hatch more often from 5km eggs, and Normal, Fire, Water, Electric, and Ice-type pokémon will appear more frequently in the wild.

The following weekend, March 27 to March 30, will see the return of the Psychic Spectacular event. Psychic pokémon will appear more often in the wild, in raids, and from eggs, including Solosis during the day and Gothita during evening hours.

March will also feature hour-long mini events. The Pokémon Spotlight Hour takes place every Tuesday between 6 and 7 pm local time, and features a large boost in wild pokémon. The Mystery Bonus Hour will run Thursday from 6 to 7 pm and offer a login bonus such as Candy, Stardust, or XP.

Pokémon GO is available on iOS and Android mobile devices.

Fire Emblem Heroes Turns 3, Introduces Subscription-based Feh Pass

Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

Mobile strategy spin-off Fire Emblem Heroes is still getting updates and events three years after its release. During the month of February, Nintendo is hosting several special events to celebrate the anniversary. They’ve also introduced a new subscription service, the awkwardly named Feh Pass.

During the 3rd anniversary, you’ll be able to grab 333 Heroic Grails just by logging into Fire Emblem Heroes. A special summoning event will guarantee a 5 star hero summon from the pool of heroes that were added in 2019.

Other special events include Hero Fests, new quests, Daily Reward Maps, and Daily Bound Hero Battles, all of which can net Orbs and Dragonflowers. Aether Raids will also be available to earn special SP Aether Stones, which can be used to construct a unique 3rd anniversary structure.

Fire Emblem Heroes also now has a subscription service, which Nintendo is calling the Feh Pass. It comes with a rather shocking price: $9.49 per month.

The Feh Pass grants two 5 star Resplendent heroes each month, which include a hero in their normal, and resplendent attire. Resplendent Heroes feature new illustrations, voice acting, and boosted stats. The first Resplendent Hero is Lyn, available now. Starting on February 24, Cordelia will become available.

The Feh Pass also grants access to Special Quests, a re-do turn feature on maps, and the ability to replay the same map for no stamina cost. Kind of sucks that the last two are incredibly helpful features locked behind a paywall, in a game that already features real-money transactions and random loot boxes in the form of hero orbs.

Fire Emblem Heroes is free-to-play on iOS and Android.
