Pokémon GO became a sensation this week after debuting for iPhone and Android, but its creators plan to add even more features to the game.
Pokémon Go has hit the world very hard. The game, combining hunting Pocket Monsters, fighting and augmented reality, is indeed set to become one of the best mobile games of the summer.
There was a small downside: Pokémon GO lacks some features that made the success of the RPG saga on mobile consoles. This is particularly true because of Pokémon trading.
Now there is good news: the players of the mobile title will soon be able to exchange their creatures. This was confirmed by John Hank, CEO of Niantic – the game developer, in an interview with Business Insider.
In a recent interview, the CEO of Niantic, John Hanke said that in future players can exchange their pocket monsters with your friends. The executive officer did not elaborate; however, he stated that this function for studio is a “central element”.
Hanke also suggested that Pokémon GO will have more options of augmented reality and, perhaps, be compatible with devices like HoloLens of Microsoft. However, this will be decided by Nintendo and The Pokemon Company.
For now, it seems that the game will be more successful than any virtual reality title published so far. Does a Nintendo mobile game will mark the triumph of augmented reality on the virtual reality? What do you think?
