In an update to earlier in the day, less than a day after being taken down, Super Mario Run is back up on the app store with a new update.

The new update for Super Mario Run has put the game at version 3.0.3. The update is not that substantial as. Nintendo has said that it only implemented bug fixes.

Here is some strange news.

 

Nintendo seems to have removed Super Mario Run from the iOS App Store.

Below is a picture of the apps Nintendo has on iOS. Super Mario Run is missing from that list.

We have no reason given for this yet, and Nintendo has yet to make a statement. Could something have happened? Or is this a mistake?

The sequel to one of the most popular puzzle games of all time comes to mobile in the all new Puzzle Fighter. Developed by Capcom Vancouver from the ground up, the classic arcade puzzle game gets modernized with a new look and new features for free download on iPhone, iPad and Android devices. The game will be coming soon for soft-launch in select countries and a global release is planned for late 2017.

Puzzle Fighter features an outstanding roster of legendary characters and stages from popular Capcom franchises. Fan-favorites such as Ryu, Ken or Chun-Li (Street Fighter), X (Mega Man), Morrigan (Darkstalkers), Frank West (Dead Rising) and more come to life with VO and cinematic special moves. Players pick one main character each with their own strengths and benefits, to face-off in explosive gem-crushing action. In addition, two assist characters can be chosen to further enhance the abilities of the main character. Simple to learn but deep in strategy, this highly addictive puzzle game has players strategically building up gems and destroying them to unleash epic combos that can knock out their opponent. Thrilling real-time versus battles, rewarding single player options and an array of content to unlock await in this ultimate puzzle fight!

This is a certainly unique looking game. Super Puzzle Fighter II was an all time classic, and the return of the series is welcome, although some may find this to be very different than the Puzzle Fighter of the past.

UK-based indie development duo Bae Team haverevealed they will bring Purrfect Date to Windows PC, Mac and iOS this winter with the publishing support of the award-winning Bossa Studios (Surgeon Simulator, I am Bread). Purrfect Date is a cross between a visual novel, dating sim and dark British comedy. You, a human, will get to date cats and uncover the secrets of the mysterious Cat Island.

Throughout the game’s seven chapters, you’ll adopt the roles of multiple freshly employed research assistants on an island almost entirely populated by cats. Choose your own adventure as you romance talking cats, balance your stats and carry out your research into the dark and questionable history of the island. Drawing inspiration from trailblazing games such as Undertale, Dream Daddy, Hatoful Boyfriend, and Pony Island, there’ll be lots of twists, turns and alternate playthroughs to keep you replaying.

Purrfect Date is the personal project of Bossa Studios’ content producer, Oliver Hindle, and his girlfriend, Ruby-Mae Roberts.

“Oliver and I were lazing around one day, itching to play a game, but nothing really grabbed our interest, so we started talking about what we’d do if we could make the ideal game for us. Cats, intrigue, dating sims, the TV show Lost… all of these things became the ingredients that went into making Purrfect Date. It’s an amalgamation of everything we love, and in essence, a love letter to each other (and cats),” said Ruby-Mae Roberts, Co-founder of Bae Team.

After finding success on Steam Greenlight, a true mark of quality and excellence, they entered into a publishing and co-development deal with Bossa Studios.

“We love to create games in ways that other developers, studios and publishers would shy away from. At Bossa, we embrace crazy ideas from the team, and when Oliver said he was working on a dating simulator about cats, we knew it was something we would support,” said Imre Jele, Co-founder of Bossa Studios.

The game can now be added to players’ wishlists on Steam here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/520600/Purrfect_Date.

For more information, follow the game on YouTube, Twitter,  Facebook and Instagram.

This is an interesting game. There is no doubt that many will be interested in this.

I am a massive Elder Scrolls fan, I think my past articles have made that clear, yet I hadn’t checked out Elder Scrolls Legends in any great detail before, besides a few minute here and there. I wanted to rectify that and really give the game some serious play time, and what I found was a game that I wish I had gotten into earlier. Still, now with the Heroes of Skyrim, it is a good time to get in.

Elder Scrolls Legends is a collectible card game, CCG, similar to Hearthstone, but with a unique Elder Scrolls charm to it. There is a strategy involved of course, but it also incorporates systems from the games and uses them in creative ways. The magika use has to be carefully considered, along with which cards to be used at which time.  There are of course different types of cards, such as support, action and creatures, which must be deployed in lanes. Mastering the different lanes is essential for doing well in this game, but also the Runes which will affect your card usage in different ways.

Elder Scrolls Legends has quite the interesting story, and while its writing does create some confusion about the overall plot of the series, it is still an interesting story and does provide some more insight of the backstory of games like Skyrim. Furthermore, the various unique events that occur in the game also provide more insight to some of the Daedra and other factions. If anything, TES: Legends provides a lot of insight into the lesser discussed aspects of the series lore and bring them to the forefront.

Now, for the Skyrim expansion, Heroes Of Skyrim,  I wasn’t quite sure what to anticipate, but found it to be an interesting take on the elements introduced in Skyrim and also making great use of the series lore from said game. It adds a lot to the overall game experience with the addition of new cards, and ways to use them. I know it doesn’t seem like I’m saying much about it, but to be honest it just feels like a great addition to an already fun experience.

Like I said at the start, I wish I had gotten into this game much sooner because I found it so amazing. I have a feeling this is a game I will be fond of for a very long time.

Plenty of adventure is coming for Villagers & Heroes fans. With the new Starfall expansion comes brand new locations to fight, quest, and craft. Starfall’s seven zones include The Rye, Pools of Andorra, Glendergan, Dartrey Woods, Turnapin Peak, Gortrin Passage, and the Zorian Marshlands. Starfall will ship with four of these zones, while the rest will be released post-launch to ensure plenty of content for players over the coming months.

Starfall takes place across multiple zones as players journey to the mysterious Crux ruled by Queen Zoria. Along the way, players will gain assistance from The Lumineers: a group of renowned Heroes also searching for the Crux for (currently) unknown reasons. Players will travel with the Lumineers through vast landscapes and embark on epic adventures to uncover the schemes of Queen Zoria.

The new expansion is the most ambitious to date which not only adds in tons of new content but Starfall will revamp many features of Villagers and Heroes as well, including a new talent, loot system, crafting, cleaner UI, and plenty of smaller fixes.

 

Alongside all new zones, level capped players will be able to start questing once more with the cap being raised to 90 and the opportunity to progress to a new 5th rebirth for even greater rewards. Prepare for all new challenges and tough elder bosses to test your party against.

Starfall will be a free update for Villagers and Heroes coming soon to PC & Android devices.

This is a great update to the game, and should add to the experience greatly for players. Will you be checking it out?
