The Pokemon Company is pleased to announce today a new game for iOS and Android smartphones called Pokemon Go.
Pokemon Go is slated for release in 2016 and it’s designed to bring the world of Pokemon to the real world.
The project has been in development for the past two years at Ingress developer Niantic Labs, which began as an internal startup at Google, in collaboration with The Pokemon Company and Nintendo.
According to TPC, Pokemon Go uses real location information to allow players to experience catching, trading, and battling Pokemon, which roam freely around the real world.
As for Nintendo, they will be the one taking care of the Pokemon Go Plus device, which can be worn like a pin or with a strap on the wrist, which alerts players of notifications with a LED display and vibration. You can perform actions, like throwing a PokeBall, by pressing the LED button.
