3DS game "Fly! Dragon" cancelled

End of an era

Amzy announced Fly! Dragon for the 3DS all the way back in 2015, and it still hasn't seen release yet. I'm sure many expected the title to be cancelled by now, but Amzy has gone ahead and made it official. It seems that the game is completely dead, as Amzy has said they have no plans to release it on any platform.

OC ReMix presents Songs of the Sirens, A Link's Awakening ReMixed Album

The perfect time for a tribute album

Celebrating today's highly anticipated re-release of Link's Awakening on the Nintendo Switch, OverClocked ReMix today released its 71st free community arrangement album, Songs of the Sirens: Link's Awakening ReMixed!

Featuring 14 tracks from 14 artists, Songs of the Sirens pays tribute to Nintendo's 1993 handheld classic The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, and is co-directed by OC ReMix veterans William "WillRock" Harby & Emery "DaMonz" Monzerol.

The album's artwork -- depicting a stone carving of Koholint Island's mysterious Owl and Wind Fish characters -- was designed by Canadian artist Roxanne Chartrand.

Songs of the Sirens marks OC ReMix's fourth Legend of Zelda series album, following 2017's Mirror Image tributing A Link to the Past, 2011's 25YEARLEGEND commemorating the franchise's 25th anniversary, and 2010's Threshold of a Dream previously honoring Link's Awakening.

A Special Announcement regarding Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon Rating Battle Season 17

Info on a mistake

Thank you for participating in Pokémon Global Link (PGL). We have an important announcement regarding the Rating Battle Season 17 Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon League that began on September 3, 2019, after the end of maintenance.

Thursday, September 5, through Monday, September 9, at 1:00 p.m. JST, Season 16 regulations were mistakenly being sent to Pokémon Ultra Sun instead of the Season 17 regulations.

This affected matches in the following ways:

Pokémon Ultra Sun vs. Pokémon Ultra Sun

· Teams were matched based on Season 16 regulations. We are currently investigating how this will affect the Season 16 rankings.

· As a result, the final release of the Season 16 rankings will be delayed. We thank you for your patience as our investigation continues.

Pokémon Ultra Sun vs. Pokémon Ultra Moon

· Players were paired up, but matches were deemed invalid because the regulations were not the same.

Pokémon Ultra Moon vs. Pokémon Ultra Moon

· These matches were not affected.

We would like to apologize for this issue, but please know that we are working to take care of it. Again, we thank you for your patience.

If you would like to learn more about Rating Battle Season 17, you can read about the Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon League and its special format regulations and the Sun/Moon League and its special format regulations .
