Pokemon Go Created by Niantic, Developers of Ingress

Pokemon Go Created by Niantic, Developers of Ingress

Niantic has broken away from Google and its inaugural real world, multiplayer game, Ingress. Taking many of the lessons learned from the development of Ingress and entering into a partnership with Nintendo, Niantic is now working to bring Pokemon into the real world with its new mobile  title Pokemon Go. Players will be tasked with finding Pokemon in the world and sending them off to do battle.

Nintendo is developing a companion smartwatch device called Pokémon Go Plus, designed to help you take part in the game's world without having to stare at your phone all day. The Pokéball-shaped device will vibrate and light up when you get near to a Pokémon in the real world. Tsunekazu Ishihara, the CEO of The Pokémon Company, said in a press conference today that he'd been working on Pokémon Go with late Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata for around two years.
