Single Joy-Con price drop (Japan)

Nintendo have announced that Joy-Cons are getting a price drop in Japan. To be more precise, it’s single Joy-Cons that are getting cheaper, not sets with two of them. Starting November 6th, single Joy-Cons will cost 3 740 Yen + taxes instead of 4 480 Yen: that’s 740 Yen cheaper (about $7).

That price drop may seem rather random at first, but it really isn’t. With this new price, buying two Joy-Cons separately will cost the same as a price of a set of two Joy-Cons (3 740 Yen + 3 740 Yen VS. 7 480 Yen). That way, if you just want to buy Joy-Cons separately (because you want a specific combination of colours not available as a set, or simply because one of yours started drifting), you will be able to do so without having to pay extra.

Right now, it’s not clear whether this price drop will go into effect in other regions (Europe, North America).

My Hero One’s Justice 2

Bandai-Namco have shared some more details about the upcoming DLC costumes for My Hero One’s Justice 2:

Check out your favorite 1-A students out of their uniforms with the Weekend Clothes costume DLC, coming soon to MY HERO ONE’S JUSTICE 2! Each character has a unique design that also comes in 10 color combinations to really show of their style.

As for the upcoming Intruder Event, it will feature a character randomly intruding into the battle at a fixed probability after an unranked match or random match is finished. They’re stronger than the usual CPU opponent.

Here’s the different types of Intruder Events that will happen:

  • Kill Count Event –  The kill count will be counted when you defeat the target character and you can get a reward according to the kill count. The damage you gave to the target character will be carried over to the next time, so you can definitely clear the game if you continue playing.
  • Raid Battle Event –  You can get a reward each time you defeat the character.
  • Score Event – Points according to the score will be given after the battle and you will be able to get a reward once the points reach a certain amount.

Pokémon GO

Niantic have announced the latest Event for Pokémon GO, centered around Strange Eggs. It will take place from October 12th to October 19th, and will feature the following:

  • Strange Eggs have appeared in Pokémon GO! According to Spark’s early research, the following Poison-type Pokémon, Dark-type Pokémon, and Pokémon that acquire one of those types via Evolution can hatch from these Eggs: Larvitar, Scraggy, Trubbish, and Vullaby—though there may be even more!
  • Defeat a Team GO Rocket Leader to receive a Strange Egg, and walk 12 km to hatch it. You’ll need to have space in your Egg inventory before your battle with Sierra, Cliff, or Arlo in order to receive a Strange Egg. Strange Eggs will continue to be available in Pokémon GO after the event ends.
  • Eggs placed in Incubators during the event will require one-quarter the normal walking distance to hatch.
  • For the first time since March, new Team GO Rocket Special Research will be available! Join Professor Willow as he and the team leaders investigate Team GO Rocket’s involvement with Strange Eggs, culminating in a battle with Giovanni himself! This is the last Team GO Rocket Special Research in 2020. If you currently have the The Shadowy Threat Grows Special Research from earlier this year, you’ll need to complete it first before you can obtain this new Special Research.
  • Poison-type and Dark-type Pokémon will be appearing more often in the wild! Look forward to encountering Spinarak, Houndour, Poochyena, Gulpin, Stunky, Purrloin and more.
  • Team GO Rocket will be more active than usual! Keep an eye out for Team GO Rocket taking over more PokéStops and Team GO Rocket balloons appearing more often.
  • Take a snapshot for a surprise!
  • Team GO Rocket Leader avatar items are now available in the shop. Perhaps you could use these avatar items to infiltrate and investigate Team GO Rocket! GO forth, Trainer!

Also, it has been announced that Team GO Rocket members are now using different Shadow Pokémon (which can be shiny):

  • Grunts: Diglett, Shellder, Slowpoke,, Aerodactyl, and Skarmory
  • Leaders: Growlithe, Drowzee, and Omanyte
  • Giovanni: Shadow Mewtwo
