Best iPhone Game Updates: ‘Real Racing 3’, ‘Star Traders: Frontiers’, ‘Fortnite’, ‘Pokemon Duel’ and More
Hello everyone, and welcome to the week! It’s time once again for our look back at the noteworthy updates of the last seven days. As usual, lots of big and/or popular games got new content this week, along with a handful of less-frequently seen titles. I’ve gathered up a nice little bunch for you to scan over while you devour your Pop Tarts or Froot Loops or whatever the devil you kids are eating for breakfast these days. Of course, you can keep an eye out for updates yourself using AppShopper or by participating in the TouchArcade forums. This weekly summary is just here to fill you in on the things you might have missed. Let’s go for it!
Real Racing 3, Free
Real Racing 3 has been around for a long while now. You can tell because this update touts itself as the fifth NASCAR update and the fourth year of returning to Daytona. New cars, of course! The NASCAR 2019 Chevy NASCAR, the Toyota NASCAR, and the Ford Mustang NASCAR all make the line-up. A limited time series gives you the chance to earn a 2017 Ferrari 812 Superfast, and the game celebrates its sixth birthday with a Time Trial Competition featuring the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Still no Daytona song, though. C’mon EA, go hand SEGA a giant bag of money. It would be a better investment than Anthem.
Not going to lie, I’m genuinely surprised that Vainglory is still alive and getting content. The whole MOBA boom seems to have cooled off quite a bit, mobile gaming as esports has not taken off the way many hoped, and yet, Vainglory keeps on soldiering onward. This update has a new hero, San Feng, who uses martial arts in a very martial arts-like way. It also features new skins for Varya, Catherine, and Anka. Other than that, you’ve got a few balance tweaks, some UI improvements, and the requisite bug fixes.
PokÃ©mon Duel, Free
Ah, a Pokemon game for mobile that isn’t Pokemon GO. Certainly, such things do exist. And in the case of Pokemon Duel, such things get pretty chunky updates with lots of new stuff to mess around with. Now arriving in the game for the first time are Z-Moves, those wacky super-attacks that have trainers doing Power Ranger-esque arm chops and what-not. UX Necrozma and EX Celebi join the game, and some monthly point rewards have been added as well. Oh, and everyone gets a UX Pikachu who can bust out one of those fancy new Z-Moves. Not bad.
Disney Magic Kingdoms, Free
I guess it’s the anniversary time of the year, because Disney Magic Kingdoms is also ringing the birthday bell. In its case, it’s three years old and still going strong, which is a pretty impressive achievement these days. Anyway, the latest event sees Tiana, Prince Naveen, and many others from The Princess and the Frog come to the Kingdom. Tiana also gets a Comfy Costume that you can pick up to add to her wardrobe. It’s good to see Disney acknowledging the last traditional animated film the company made. I really wish we’d see more, though.
Toon Blast, Free
Oh hey, the …
