On Aug. 10, a new MMOARRPG Pokémon title was announced via the Niconico live stream.
Entitled Pokémon GO, the upcoming Pokémon game will arrive on iOS and Android devices in 2016. The game heavily relies on the concept of augemented reality, and it is being developed by Niantic Labs, who recently became independent from Google. Among other projects, Niantic is best known for Ingress, a popular augmented reality based smartphone game. Along with the involvement of Nintendo, it has been confirmed that Junichi Masuda is involved in working on the setting, game design and music for the game. In addition, he is also planning to link Pokémon GO with the main series Pokémon games.
Nintendo is also working on a Bluetooth wrist-device, called Pokémon GO Plus, which can be worn on the wrist or as a clip-on. Pokémon GO Plus will allow the players to interact with Pokémon GO without needing to check the phone and notifies them about events in the game by using an LED and vibration, including the appearance of a Pokémon nearby. The players will also be able to catch wild Pokémon and carry out other actions by using the button on the respective device.
Pokémon GO will be available for free with in-app purchases.
