The South Korean Defense Ministry has announced that a senior Navy official has cancelled a visit to Japan planned for next month.

A report earlier last month suggested that Fortnite would be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Earlier a photo leaked which revealed Nintendo's possible announcements for E3 2018, in which Fortnite was once again listed. In case it wasn't all but confirmed, South Korea's ratings board has revealed that Fortnite will indeed be coming to the Switch.
Given that games need to be submitted to the ratings board for approval and a subsequent audience rating, this is as official as it gets until Nintendo announces it themselves. E3 2018 is scheduled to take place later this month and we expect that the announcement will also confirm its release date, which hopefully won't be too long.
It’s not uncommon for malware-ridden apps to make their way to the Play Store. The people behind them either want to scam users or just push less than desirable ads to make a quick buck. Their motives aren’t as sinister as those of a North Korean group of hackers. McAfee researchers found that a North Korean hacking group nicknamed Sun Team recently posted three infected Android apps to the Play Store in a bid to target those who have defected from North Korea.
The infected apps remained on the Play Store for three months and were only removed after Google was notified about them privately. They had about 100 downloads before they were removed.

The surge of foreign visitors to Japan in the first half of this year to a record 13.76 million is primarily attributable to a rise in South Korean tourists, particularly those arriving on low-cost carriers.
"More young (South Korean) people are enjoying brief personal trips (to Japan) casually using LCCs," said Shin Seo Kyung, deputy director of Korea Tourism Organization's Tokyo office.
