GameInformer recently got the chance to try out Little Dragons Cafe, Harvest Moon creator’s new game. In Little Dragons Cafe you and your twin are given the job to run the cafe after your mother falls asleep and isn’t able to wake up. You eventually meet with an old man and he shows you a dragon egg. Once the egg hatches, it’s up to you to raise the dragon and feed it. The old man seems to think this dragon will help the twins with their mother.
Exploring the island you live on is needed to obtain different ingredients for the cafe. Hunting the animals you see will help get the ingredients you need. Be careful though, because if one of these animals attacks you, they might take away some ingredients you’ve collected. Once your dragon gets older, it’ll help you fight off these animals you encounter. You can fish in Little Dragons Cafe too! Catching fish is pretty simple and those fish could be used in the cafe. There’s also recipe fragments to collect, each type of recipe having four needed to find. Once you collect all four, you can learn a new recipe!
Running The Cafe
The customers that visit the cafe will sometimes ask you for favors or give you their own recipe, depending on how happy they are with their time at your cafe. When cooking, you’ll play simple minigames to make the meal. These minigames will eventually get more difficult as you progress through the game.
Little Dragons Cafe is going to be available on the Nintendo Switch and Playstation 4 this summer! For more on this game, watch some gameplay below.

The second round of the Super Mario event is now starting in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp! In round 1, you used the super mushrooms you received from animals to craft Super Mario items. In round 2, it’s the same idea. The only difference is that this time, you’ll be receiving 1-UP mushrooms to craft the new items that were added. The Super Star item is also new, but you’ll have to use your Leaf Tickets, 120 to be exact.

Tomorrow Corporation, the team behind Little Inferno, Human Resource Machine, and 7 Billion Humans revealed the next game they’re working on! The game is called Welcome to the Information Superhighway. “This is shaping up to be one of the more game-like games we’ve made. We’ve got a long way to go on a long crooked road, but thought we’d update here as we discover more about it.” – Tomorrow Corporation
From official website: What is this internet highway all the kids are faxing about these days? Can I go on an incredible road trip and make lots of broken new friends along the way? Isn’t Tomorrow Corporation made of three grumpy old people who don’t know how to use social media? Yes!
It’s unknown what platforms Welcome to the Information Superhighway will be releasing on, but considering their other games came to the Nintendo Switch, we expect to see this game releasing there as well. Not much is known about the game itself, but Tomorrow Corporation provided three pieces of concept art for the game.
The first Fishing Tourney is starting in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp! Head over to Saltwater Shores and talk to Chip to get started. During this event, you’ll be able to catch special tourney fish. These fish are the clown fish, the surgeonfish, and the barred knifejaw. To spot one of these fish in the water, you’ll see the shadow of it sparkling.
After you catch one of these fish, go ahead and talk to Chip. He’ll measure the fish for you and once you reach the size goal needed, you’ll be rewarded with some cool new items! Another way to receive rewards is by doing Chip Challenges. Once you complete a Chip Challenge, claim the reward!
If you get lucky, you’ll catch two tourney fish with a normal fishing rod. If you want to catch two fish each time though, use 80 Leaf Tickets to rent the golden rod from Chip. You can also use the tourney throw net to catch multiple tourney fish at once!
At the end of the Fishing Tourney, all players that gave at least one fish to Chip will receive a trophy in the mail. The type of trophy you end up getting depends on the total size of your tourney fish. The first Fishing Tourney goes from 3/15/18 to 3/20/18.
Head over to our Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp discord to talk to other players, trade, and help each other in any way possible! Are you a fan of Splatoon 2? Learn all about the new update coming to the game here.
