The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo has announced that an update to Pokémon HOME version 2.0.0 will be available in the coming weeks. This update will allow recently released Pokémon titles, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, Pokémon Shining Pearl, and Pokémon Legends: Arceus, to be mutually compatible to past games Pokémon Sword, Pokémon Shield, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, and Pokémon GO.
After the madness of the holidays, the January-March quarter is typically much slower for consumer products, with things typically slowing down following any initial New Year's sales. But if Nintendo's taught us anything over the years, it's that it's not a typical company. Nintendo's latest quarterly investor briefing has revealed that their January-March quarter has seen a solid improvement over the previous year, with much of that improvement owing to the continued strong performance of the latest entries in the Pokémon franchise.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus has received an update to software Ver. 1.1.1. This update resolves a bug that prevents players from receiving the Shiny Charm. Players are advised to download the update before continuing playing.
Players of Pokémon Legends: Arceus can redeem 5 Grit Pebbles, 5 Rare Candies, and 5 Star Pieces using the code「THX4Y0URHELP」 as revealed by the official @poke_times Twitter account. These items can be used in your investigation. This distribution ends on April 1, 2022, at 08:59 a.m. JST.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus has received an update to software Ver. 1.1.0, "Daybreak". In addition to bugfixes, the Daybreak update adds additional content that will be available after viewing the game's end credits. In this update, Trainers will begin investigating mysterious mass outbreaks of Pokémon that are popping up all over the Hisui region. Players will also have a chance to battle powerful opponents, like Legendary Pokémon and wardens.
To celebrate the 26th anniversary of the release of Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Green Version in Japan, Trainers in the US and Canada can visit a participating GameStop store in their region to pick up a special code card that will let them add a Hisuian Growlithe to their team in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, as well as granting them 20 Feather Balls. No purchase is required to receive a code card, but the offer is only good while supplies last.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus has received an update to software Ver. 1.0.2. This update resolves a small selection of bugs present in Ver. 1.0.1. Players are advised to download the update before continuing playing.
Much rests upon the shoulders of Legends: Arceus. Though the series has continued to enjoy commercial success on the incredibly popular Nintendo Switch, critical reception in the past three years has, anecdotally, not quite kept pace. Sword and Shield gained some notoriety for cuts to the Pokédex and a Wild Area that was disappointing to some, and reactions to Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, which quickly gained a reputation for being at least a little buggy, were similarly mixed. These titles weren’t loathed - far from it - but they fed into a personally-felt unease that the franchise’s halcyon days might have been on the Nintendo DS, with titles such as the original Diamond and Pearl, Heartgold and Soulsilver, and Black and White, two console eras ago. That’s why it comes as a significant personal relief that Legends: Arceus is good. Really good.
Between Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas, Boxing Day, and New Year's Eve, the October-December quarter is a big one for any business dealing with consumer products, and Nintendo is no exception to that. While Nintendo's latest quarterly investor briefing has revealed that their net sales over the holiday season in 2021 didn't quite match up to the performance of the previous year, several significant milestones have been set during this quarter for the Nintendo Switch, and for the Pokémon Franchise.
