There's stronger confirmation that earlier reports of the Toyota 86's demise were premature. Autocar got confirmation from Toyota's European marketing boss that the company is planning a second generation of the 2+2 rear-wheel drive coupe, which is known as the GT86 in Europe, in concert with Subaru.
We presume that holds true for the U.S. as well; Autoblog sought confirmation from Toyota. It jibes with an earlier report in which both automakers refuted a Japanese outlet's assertion that the 86 and the Subaru BRZ would not see successor versions.
Nike launched its new Adapt BB smart sneakers a couple of weeks ago. These self-lacing shoes are cheaper than an earlier iteration from the apparel giant even though $350 is still a lot of money for shoes. It released apps for iOS and Android so that users could lace up the shoes using their phones but it turns out that an update released for the Android app has caused it to no longer work with the Adapt BB.
Owners who are affected by the issue say that neither the left or right shoe pairs with the Nike app. This means that they can no longer use the mobile app to automatically lace up their smart sneakers.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga says Japan will step up efforts to coordinate policies with the United States on the abduction of Japanese nationals by North Korea ahead of the second US-North Korea summit.

Now we know that there will be a PlayStation 5. Sony had previously confirmed as much, although there is the question of when the console will be released (some believe it could be launched in 2019). Regardless of a release date, it appears that Square Enix could already be working on something for the console.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was one of the best-selling and best-reviewed games of 2017 when it was first released. We imagine that Nintendo would love to maintain that momentum, although the question is when can we expect a new Zelda title? The good news is that it looks like Nintendo could already be working on it.
Most of the time video games that are adapted into movies or made into series don’t usually do well, but yet based on the reviews, Netflix’s Castlevania series seems to be extremely well-received, so much so that the series has been confirmed for a third season. Now it looks like the producer behind the series, Adi Shankar, could be working on another adaptation.
