There is a new game call Pokemon GO. According to the press conference, “For the first time, Pokémon will roam free in the real world. Pokémon GO will allow players to capture Pokémon who inhabit parks, shopping areas, sidewalks and the countryside all around the world. Imagine discovering a Squirtle hiding along the waterfront in San Francisco, a Bulbasaur at Shinjuku Station or a Pikachu beneath the Eiffel Tower.”

This new game also will have a device called Pokemon GO Plus. It uses a Bluetooth signal to pair with your smartphone. This Pokeball like device is used to alert you to Pokemon within range of game events. Also the simple action of throwing a Pokeball by pressing the center button.

This smartphone app is being developed by Niantic Labs(Ingress), Nintendo, and GameFreak. It will be released on the App Store and Google Play in 2016.

This seems like a fun game from all the info I have! It is also nice to see a game publisher taking a chance on this type of game. As soon as I get any more details on pricing and gameplay, I shall relay them to you!
