     Project Mugetsu codes April 2023

It's important to redeem them as soon as they drop, as they won't remain active forever.

     Genshin Impact codes April 2023 – redeem free primogems

What are the new Genshin Impact codes? Gathering currency in Genshin Impact can be quite the grind. While you can earn Mora and Primogems by completing quests such as daily commissions, an injection of extra funds will always be gratefully received. Fortunately, developer Hoyoverse occasionally sends out free gifts in the form of a Genshin redeem code. Most codes only work for a limited time - and they grant essential goodies like free Primogems and Mora - so it's a great idea to redeem them as soon as possible to avoid missing out.

Genshin Impact codes are released periodically, frequently appearing in Hoyoverse's special programs that reveal information about future updates coming to the free PC game, but they can also drop to celebrate milestones or to coincide with new Genshin Impact events.  Below you'll find all the active Genshin Impact codes for April 2023, and we'll also detail what they get you, explain how to redeem them, and fill you in on where to look for more.

     How to carry more resources in Minecraft Legends

Want to learn how to carry more Minecraft Legends resources? To create buildings, mobs, and improvements, you need as many resources as you can carry. You can hold up to 1,000 of each for Stone and Wood quite nicely, but the others have drastically lower resource caps in comparison.

But, as every RTS game fan will know all too well, there's no worse feeling than running out of Minecraft Legends resources. So how do you increase these caps? You can build improvements at the Well of Fate in the centre of the map. Each one increases your maximum cap for that material but also requires you to invest in more space. You can also build Allay Storage upgrades to improve your Wood and Stone caps, as well as the more coveted Lapis Lazuli, Gold, and Prismarine max caps.

     How to increase your Minecraft Legends mob limit

Want to know how to increase the Minecraft Legends mob limit? When you think of real-time strategy, you think of clashes between two colossally-sized armies, each with its unique units specifically designed to combat something from the opposing army. In Minecraft Legends, it's the locals of the Overworld versus the invading Piglins from the Nether, and it's up to you to stop the oncoming horde.

That said, it's fairly apparent that the default values of 20 for both your Minecraft Legends mob limit and how many of them you can command at once are pitiful. In RTS games, one viable tactic is to build as many of the best Minecraft Legends mobs as possible before rushing down the enemy, catching them unawares. So gather your Lapis Lazuli and make the following improvements to bolster your army's ranks.

     How to get Minecraft Legends Lapis Lazuli

Out of all the resources, Minecraft Legends Lapis Lazuli is the hardest to obtain. When combined with the other resources, you can summon mobs to fight for your cause with the help of these blue gemstones. You only need one or two at most to get more units, but with the ever-increasing number of Piglin hordes rising throughout the land, you must ensure you have a decent supply.

To secure the win in the RTS game, you'll need to learn how to get more Minecraft Legends Lapis Lazuli. The Minecraft Legends mobs are cheap, but the costs add up, and there is a Minecraft Legends mob limit to contend with. You can carry more resources of this type by increasing the cap, but there is at least one way to hold more than you normally could, and this could help you take down even the toughest of Minecraft Legends bosses.

     FNAF and Stranger Things meet in new Steam horror game, with a twist

I love the original Five Nights at Freddy's (or FNAF as it's affectionately known) largely because of its simplicity. One location, one week, one screen - you get a terrific sense of where you are and why, and it makes the whole game really sing. Mix that with the '80s retro-tech flair of Stranger Things - floppy-discs, CRT monitors, pixelscript - and some bloody, first-person combat a la Resident Evil Village, and the result is Suffer The Night, a new Steam horror game with a smart, metatextual (a-thank you) twist.

Armored Core 6 Key Art found in Xbox. Image via Armored Core Subreddit.

A new snippet of Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon surfaced online. A Reddit user who claims to have pre-installed the game on Xbox shared an image of an alleged screensaver from the game's console app. Apparently, many other users have found the same key art using the same "pre-install trick." [Thanks, Eliwats17 on Reddit!]

Check out the Reddit post with the alleged key art here below.

In the image, you can see a humanoid machine on one knee holding a gun and missing an arm. Surrounding it is debris from what appears to be the remains of a destroyed futuristic city. Notably, the background of the image is reminiscent of the opening seconds of the Armored Core 6 teaser trailer. During it, a cataclysmic wave sweeps everything in its path.

Over the past few months, Armored Core 6 pre-order pages have been popping up on various platforms for players to pre-order the game. But unlike the others, the Xbox app in particular also allows you to download preliminary game data as a sort of pre-installation. When you try to run the downloaded software afterward, the aforementioned screensaver image appears.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the franchise and this installment will be the first new game in 10 years since the last entry, Armored Core: Verdict Day. In February 2023, Producer Yasunori Ogura shared details about Armored Core 6's gameplay and setting but didn't confirm a release date yet.

Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon is in development and will be released for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC in 2023.

HoYoVerse is sharing more character details now that Honkai: Star Rail's debut is drawing nearer, and the latest two involve Clara and Gepard. Both are five-star cast members who were playable in the betas and will be a part of the game at launch. Both are also from Belobog. While Clara only appears in a piece of art, Gepard stars in a new trailer. Both of these new announcements come after the game hit 10 million pre-registrations.

Clara always appears alongside the robot Svarog in Honkai: Star Rail. She's a Physical element character who follows The Destruction path. This means that her moveset is built around dealing damage to opponents.

As for Gepard, he's an Ice element character who follows The Preservation path in Honkai: Star Rail. This means he's designed to help protect both himself and the other three characters in the party. He's captain of the Silvermane Guards. After a brief cinematic establishing who he is, it shows him in battle attacking with his shield. However, the end of the Honkai: Star Rail character trailer for him hints at a less serious side, as he appears to be singing along to a song at the end of it.

Sega Acquires Rovio

More popular animal characters are coming to Sega Corporation's lineup, as the company announced in a press release that it will acquire Rovio Entertainment Oyj. Sega offered to purchase all of Rovio's outstanding shares and options, and Rovio's board of directors accepted. The friendly takeover will cost Sega a total of EUR 706 million, or about $770 million. Things will begin on or around May 8, 2023.

Rovio is a game development company that primarily creates and publishes mobile games. Its largest and most well-known series is Angry Birds, which had its first game released in 2009. Collectively, Rovio games have been downloaded over 5 billion times.

This acquisition comes as part of Sega's goal to "further strengthen its position in this fast-growing mobile and global gaming market." Per an October 2022 IDG Report, the mobile gaming market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 5% from 2022 to 2026, with mobile gaming expected to represent 56% of the overall global gaming market. Sega believes that Rovio will be helpful in developing mobile and multi-platform versions of its existing IPs.

Currently, Sega is working with NieR creator Yoko Taro on a mobile game called 404 Game RE:SET. It will feature human versions of classic Sega games that cause trouble for the world around them after being turned evil. Players are tasked with purifying these characters in order to save the world.

Sega's acquisition of Rovio will officially begin when its offer commences on or around May 8, 2023. The three-quarter-billion-dollar deal will give Sega at least 90% of all shares in Rovio.

Seven Nights Ghost

The Steam page for Seven Nights Ghost is now open, showing that it will come out some time in August 2023. According to the description, it is a "heartwarming FPS horror exploration game" in which you live with a ghost for a week. It will be available in English and Japanese, as well as have controller support.

You can watch a trailer for Seven Nights Ghost here:


In the trailer, we see the protagonist (the player character) go through their everyday life in the apartment. But the ghost is there to turn on the light in the middle of the night or pop out from the table in this horror game. The story follows the protagonist after they move into a haunted apartment. Though the ghost does not plan on taking their life, she does take their doughnut. As an aside, there is a minor jump scare at the end of the trailer.

The game will revolve around the protagonist completing set missions every night. The ghost will chase you, so you have to make sure she doesn't catch you. It's a little unclear what she'll do to you if she gets you, since she won't kill you. As you solve the little problems that pop up throughout your life with the ghost, the two of you will start to get closer. There appears to be a secret connection between the protagonist and the ghost that you'll discover over the seven nights.

Seven Nights Ghost will come out in August 2023 for Windows PC via Steam.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Blissey Tera Raid re-run

Due to how popular it was, the Blissey Tera Raid will return in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. You'll be able to get Blisseys of various Tera types from April 21-24, 2023. This Raid is good for farming, as each Blissey will drop various Tera Shards, as well as EXP Candies. You'll get more of these items than in usual Raids too.

During the Raid period, there is the chance to meet a happy Blissey. If you defeat this particular Blissey, you'll be able to get an even wider variety of Tera Shards than when you beat a normal one. In general though, the Blissey Raid is very rewarding no matter what kind of Blissey you fight. This is because they are fairly easy to win against, even if it's a five-star Raid, and you can use the rewards to greatly power up your Pokemon.

Originally, the Blissey Raid ran from March 24-26, 2023. So it did not take very long before this re-run. This is likely because of the aforementioned awards you get whenever you beat a Raid. The announcement also stated that the fans really enjoyed this particular event.

The original Blissey Raid ran congruently with the Decidueye one, and coincidentally, this Blissey re-run will run alongside the Typhlosion one. These two are the final evolutions of the Pokemon Legends Arceus starters, however the ones found here are their standard versions.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are available on the Nintendo Switch. The Blissey Tera Raid in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will re-run from April 21-24, 2023.

The announcement also noted that she may graduate as a result of the offenders' actions.

Isla Coleman debuted back in April 2021 and is a first generation Production Kawaii VTuber. In addition to streaming games, she's also known for singing and performing. The official statement noted the harassment consisted of doxing, with unnamed individuals attempting to share her actual identity and address. Kinoshita's announcement stated that "criminal and civil legal actions" are being pursued and she may graduate if the company "cannot ensure her safety and security."

Here's the full statement.

Isla Coleman also issued a statement on TwitLonger about what's happening. She noted, "As a creator, I'm entitled to my personal life and there are things that I am not obligated to share while I am in Kawaii. I'm very disappointed that these "Coleknights", whose names and contributions I remember from my chat and community, have been sharing my personal information like it's a trophy to be proud of, when in reality it has greatly impacted my mental wellbeing."

She also shared the following message on Twitter proper.

If Isla Coleman does graduate, she will join a number of other Production Kawaii VTubers who left the company in 2023. All five Enchantasia members retired this year. Oceane Otoishi's contract was terminated by the company in February 2023. Aletta Sky, Peony Aeria, Sava Safari, and Miryu Kotofuji all ended their activities in April 2023.

One Piece USJ 2023

USJ (Universal Studios Japan) announced that its annual One Piece event will return in Summer 2023. The limited event will run from July 5, 2023 to October 10, 2023. It'll feature a performance using water, and the actors for Luffy and the others will actually go up to the audience and greet them. [Thanks, Oricon!]

The title of the show will be "Explode, Fire Fist" and it seems that the Marines (along with Smoker) will make an appearance. Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates might have to fight them to save three queens. It's unclear which queens the summary refers to. As per usual, this story will be an original one for the park. So it will not be canon, nor will it be based on a canon arc.

Every year, the show will feature the Straw Hat Pirates fighting a veritable menagerie of enemies from the anime and manga series. In 2022, USJ re-themed its Hollywood Dream: The Ride to be a One Piece one during the Premier Summer show. So it might do that again this year. For sure, though, Sanji's Pirate Restaurant will open up for another year to serve those hungry for his grub.

When the COVID-19 pandemic started in 2020, USJ had to cancel its One Piece Premier Show 2020. While the show did re-open, it had to cut back on some of the audience interaction due to social distancing rules. However, the 2023 event will mark a complete revival of the show. The actors will get up close to the viewers during the greeting session once more.

The One Piece Premier Summer 2023 event will run at USJ in Osaka from July 5, 2023 to October 10, 2023.

This update, called 1.6, comes long after the release of the 1.5 update back in October 2020. This makes 1.6 the first update that Stardew Valley will see in under three years. ConcernedApe announced this upcoming update in a Twitter post that gave a brief overview of what players can expect.

     How To Check Your Mmr In Overwatch 2 Is It PossibleFrom new characters being re-balanced, to new maps being added, Overwatch 2  is an ever-evolving game. However, one of the most compelling things about this game is its competitive side. Things get exciting rather quickly and change often. The competitive matches differ from quick play; you'll get a level designated to you based on your performance. This is called MMR — or Matchmaking Rating. In Overwatch it was easier to figure this out, all you had to do was go into your Career Profile and it would be there. However, in the sequel, it may be a little harder.
