While most people wait in eager anticipation for the Pokémon Sun and Moon release, while potentially keeping themselves busy by photoshopping the sh*t out of the world's seemingly least favorite Pokémon starter of all time, Popplio...other folks in Hong Kong marched in protest over Nintendo's plan to use the Putonghua (Mandarin Chinese) translation for 100+ Pokémon characters in the Hong Kong version of Pokémon Sun and Moon.

The core of the fans' unrest is with the Pikachu name change. Previously known as "Beikaaciu" but now set to be referred to as Pikaqiu in future games.

6,000 people banded together to sign off on a petition in March asking Nintendo to reverse the changes, but the request went on to be ignored.

You can find the Dark Souls hat tip in one of the final missions, from a branch off the main story line of Blood and Wine's 'Beyond Hill and Dale' quest. The Easter egg brings with it the nice shiny take-home prize of a level 46 sword known as Gesheft, which is a relic class weapon, and offers up to 20% extra intensity across all signs, has three rune slots, and deals out up to 627 damage in its base form.

I'm weary about giving away the easter egg itself, so we'll hold off on that for now...what do you guys think of the Dark Souls nod in itself though? Kind of cool. The guys over at VG24/7 broke it down though, and provided a nice screenshot of the Easter egg too, if you want to check it out here.
