Nintendo announces Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon for 3DS, not Switch

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon

Nintendo Switch owners are going to have to settle for Pokkén Tournament Deluxe for their Pokémon needs.

During a Nintendo Direct stream today, the Japanese game company announced that Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are coming to the 3DS. These are updated versions of the Sun and Moon games, which came out for the portable last November and sold more than 15.44 million copies. The Ultra versions are releasing on November 17.

Many fans were hoping that Nintendo would announced a new version of Sun and Moon for the Switch. Part of that dream came true, but these updated takes on the newest Pokémon additions are sticking to the 3DS.

The Ultra versions will feature different Pokémon from the originals and new versions of its star monsters, Solgaleo and Lunala. It will use the same Polynesian setting as Sun and Moon but feature a new story. Nintendo says it will announce more info on the games later this year.

Nintendo often releases updated versions of a Pokémon game with some improvements and new features. This trend started with Pokémon Yellow, which followed Pokémon Red and Blue on the original Game Boy.

The main Pokémon games, which focus on role-playing game battles and collecting and training monsters, have always stuck to portable systems like the 3DS. The home consoles have had to make do with spinoffs like the fighting game Pokkén Tournament. Fans were hoping that since the Switch is a portable/home console hybrid we might get an updated version of Sun and Moon for it, but that isn’t happening … at least not yet.

Windows 10 included password manager with huge security hole

There's a good reason why security analysts get nervous about bundled third-party software: it can introduce vulnerabilities that the companies can't control. And Microsoft, unfortunately, has learned that the hard way. Google researcher Tavis Ormandy discovered that a Windows 10 image came bundled with a third-party password manager, Keeper, which came with a glaring browser plugin flaw -- a malicious website could steal passwords. Ormandy's copy was an MSDN image meant for developers, but Reddit users noted that they received the vulnerable copy of Keeper after clean reinstalls of regular copies and even a brand new laptop.

A Microsoft spokesperson told Ars Technica that the Keeper team had patched the exploit (in response to Ormandy's private disclosure), so it shouldn't be an issue if your software is up to date. Also, you were only exposed if you enabled the plugin.

However, the very existence of the hole has still raised a concern: are Microsoft's security tests as thorough for third-party apps as its own software? The company has declined to comment, but that kind of screening may prove crucial if Microsoft is going to maintain the trust of Windows users. It doesn't matter how secure Microsoft's code is if a bundled app undermines everything.
