Pokémon fans rejoice! You will soon be able to catch ’em all using a new GPS-enabled app.
Pokémon GO is an upcoming free-to-play mobile game, created by the collective powers of Nintendo, Niantic and The Pokémon company, that uses location information to allow players to find and catch Pokémon in the real world.
A statement from the app’s creators stated: “The Pokémon video game series has always valued open and social experiences, such as connecting with other players to enjoy trading and battling Pokémon. Pokemon GO‘s gameplay experience goes beyond what appears on screen as players explore their neighbourhoods, communities and the world they live in to discover Pokémon alongside friends and other players.”
Fans of the game series will even be able to buy a Bluetooth-enabled Pokémon GO Plus wristband, that vibrates and lights up whenever a wild Pokémon is nearby.
The Pokémon GO app will be available to download on iOS and Android at some point in 2016.
