Today was a big day for Nintendo fans as 3 classic titles have landed on the Apple App Store. Besides the occasional licensed Pokémon game, Nintendo for years ignored other mobile platforms like iOS and Android until it started creating its own touchscreen titles in 2016. Nintendo's lack of interest in mobile gaming didn't stop other publishers from bringing their classic Nintendo games to the iPhone and iPad, and today was no different, as two Nintendo DS games and a "special edition" of a classic SNES title popped up on the App Store.
Pokémon GO has extended Professor Willow’s Global Research Challenge. Throughout the months of June, July and August Pokémon trainers have been busy completing a variety of research tasks for Professor Willow, and starting September 13 at 1:00 PM (PDT) they will be rewarded with an Ultra Bonus Event.
Meow Wars is a cute hand drawn card game starring secret agent cats. The game is played like a hand of War, instead of Hearthstone, meaning it doesn't feature a lot of complicated cards or the deepest strategy. The easy to learn mechanics may be more appealing to casual gamers who are turned off by deeper card battling games.
The reboot/sequel to the infamously bad Super NES title Shaq Fu has made its way to the Apple App Store. Shaq Fu: A Legend Rebron was originally released to Steam and consoles in early 2018 after being successfully funded on IndieGoGo. It is a tongue in cheek beat 'em up, side scroller starring the retired basketball player Shaquille O'Neal.
