Netmarble’s popular superhero battler MARVEL Future Fight is going big with a bunch of new characters and play mechanics via its latest update.
1. 2 new Defenders characters: Hellcat and Ghost Rider (Robbie Reyes)! Plus, Kid Kaiju from Monsters Unleashed is now available.
2. 5 new uniforms, featuring Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Punisher, Elektra, and Karnak!
3. A ranking system for each character has been added. Now you can find out what your heroes’ ranks are compared to everyone else’s.
4. Timeline Battles now have recommended and restricted heroes.
5. Improvements have been made to the Uniform Upgrade system and convenience features.
The game remains free (with in-app purchases) on Google Play.
It has been possible to send money via Gmail on the web; now the process gets a mobile touch-up with the latest update to Gmail for Android.
Now, according to the Google Play changelog, it is possible to send money to recipients in the app. To get the option, one need only tap the attachment symbol when composing an email, and then selecting “Send money” from the options.
Google Wallet is invoked, and one can get the money to the folks that need it after the amount is entered. One can also tack on a note if so desired.
As such, it seems as though Google Wallet setup is needed, but it might be a small price to pay for the convenience for some folks.
