Catch 'em all in real life with Pokémon Go
This looks pretty damn fun.
Pokémon Go has just been announced with the quite frankly damn impressive trailer you can watch below. The game, compatible with iPhone or Android devices, opens a universe of Pokémon in the real world for you to find, catch, trade and battle with. The game will use real location information to allow players to experience catching, trading, and battling Pokémon. Obviously you're not gonna see 'em in the flesh like the trailer below suggests, but if you know any Pokémon fan, you know them to be fanatical, and this game sounds like about as close as we're gonna get to real life Pokémon...for now.
From the Pokémon website:
"A small device called a Pokémon GO Plus will enable Pokémon GO players to enjoy the game even when they’re not looking at their smartphone. The device connects to the smartphone via Bluetooth and notifies the player about events in the game—such as the appearance of a Pokémon nearby—using an LED and vibration. In addition, players can catch Pokémon or perform other simple actions by pressing the button on the device. Pokémon GO Plus is being developed and manufactured by Nintendo Co., Ltd."
Anyway, watch the trailer below and get amped, we did:
