Nightly News Roundup

Pokémon eShop games coming this Fall

Pokémon Dream Radar and Pokédex 3D Pro, the two new Pokémon eShop games that were announced during last month’s Nintendo Direct, are coming to North America and Europe this Fall just in time for Pokémon Black 2 and White 2. (Was there ever any doubt that they wouldn’t?)

Pokémon Dream Radar (formerly AR Searcher) uses the 3DS camera and augmented reality technology to allow players to find and catch Pokémon. Any Pokémon caught in Dream Radar can be transferred to Black 2 and White 2.

Also coming this Fall is Pokédex 3D Pro, a new edition of the existing Pokédex 3D. It will feature every Pokémon in the National Pokédex, and they will all be accessible from the first use. The Pokédex will feature comprehensive details, comparative stats, and the ability to sort through various types of Pokémon.
The exact release dates of the eShop titles have not been announced, but it would be safe to say they will be very close to the release of Pokémon Black Version 2 and White Version 2. Prices for the Western releases have also not been revealed, but they definitely won’t be free like the first Pokédex 3D.

Mario Kart 7 patch drops today

Today, Nintendo is sending out a 3DS update that is patching the often abused glitches in the Maka Wuhu and Bowser Castle 1 tracks in Mario Kart 7. Players online have been using these glitches to jump ahead in races, making many other players upset (some players had even started boycotting Mario Kart 7 online play until Nintendo repaired the glitches!). The new patches are required to be downloaded in order to race online, so everyone will be able to race in a glitch-free environment now. This patch sets a new precedent for Nintendo, a company which has never made an in-game patch of this sort before. The folks at Nintendo Life have step-by-step instructions for downloading the patch, which must be done through the eShop or by QR Code.
