Hatch More Eggs with the Pokémon GO Eggstravaganza

Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

Pokémon GO’s seasonal Easter event has returned, the Pokémon GO Eggstravaganza. The event is live now this week and Easter weekend, ending April 23 at 1 pm Pacific/4 pm Eastern.

The Eggstravaganza is all about eggs, naturally. During the event you’ll be able to find rare Pokémon Pichu, Smoochum, and Magby in the smallest 2 km eggs. More varied Pokémon will hatch from all kinds of eggs. And the bunny Pokémon Buneary will make more frequent appearances, including in ultra rare shiny forms.

Throughout the event incubators will hatch eggs twice as quickly and net double the normal candy rewards for hatching. The EXP-granting Lucky Eggs will also last twice as long.

Finally any new Field Research gained during the event will be geared toward egg hatching.

Remember that trainers can turn on the optional Adventure Sync to track their steps without having the game open. This makes hatching eggs much easier just by walking around with your phone.

The Eggstravaganza ends April 23. Also going on this week is the Pokémon GO Snapshot Challenge, using the new Snapshot feature. To participate, simply post your entries to Twitter or Instagram using #GOsnapshot.

The SnapShot Challenge will run throughout the next several weeks and include three separate challenges. The first challenge is going on now, and tasks you with taking a buddy picture with your Pokémon using the AR camera.

Pokémon GO is available on iOS and Android.

Team Up with the Avengers in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 this Summer

Posted by | News, Switch | No Comments

Marvel has revealed the release date for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. The cooperative action game will be out exclusively on Nintendo Switch on July 19.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 stars a large roster of Marvel heroes, including all of the current MCU Avengers (Iron Man, Hulk, Black Panther, the Guardians of the Galaxy, etc) as well as additional popular Marvel comics heroes like Deadpool, Wolverine, and Spider-Gwen.

The story is based around Thanos and The Black Order, first introduced in the films in Avengers: Infinity War. The heroes team up to race around the universe to gather the Infinity Stones before Thanos can get his hands on them.

“Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order brings gamers and Marvel fans together in a new action RPG exclusive to Nintendo Switch,” said Nick Chavez, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing, Nintendo of America. “With a huge cast of Super Heroes to choose from, assembling your ultimate team, strategically combining skills to unleash powerful attacks, and preventing galactic devastation with friends has never been more fun or immersive.”

The Black Order is the first Marvel Ultimate Alliance game in over  a decade. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 released in 2009 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The co-op action-RPG series features arcade-like gameplay as players assemble four-player teams, level up, and combine powerful abilities.

The game will feature 4 player multiplayer both locally and online (Nintendo Switch Online membership required for online play).

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is coming exclusively to Switch on July 19. It’s rated T for Teen.
