'Pokemon Go' News: Legendary Pokemon Launch Plans Revealed by Niantic With New Event Soon?
Niantic is said to have sent out messages to players regarding the long-awaited Legendary Pokemon release. Although there was no further information revealed, it is said that the update should come out by the end of the year.
There have been new tidbits coming out about "Pokemon Go" during the Mobile World Congress as well as the Game Developers Conference 2017 and the latest news was revealed at the South by Southwest Conference and Festivals.
Express reports that during the SXSW in Austin, Niantic Labs CEO John Hanke has confirmed that the team has been working on a bunch of new ideas and concepts but remained tight-lipped on what these are.
He added that these new projects have not been revealed by the team just yet, which means that the previous reports from the past few months about "Pokemon Go" including gym battle revamp as well as trading and more PvP features are being discarded.
Fans believe that Hanke is referencing to a new event that is still in development by the team, which might involve Pikachu as well as a few hats yet again. Meanwhile, Birmingham Mail reports that Hanke has also revealed that a follow-up to the "Pokemon Go" Plus-style wearable is already in the works, which will time the first anniversary of the game in summer. Hanke added that the games they are making are designed for augmented reality.
"We're going to take advantage of the wearables that exist today while we wait and work with partners to bring to market A.R. glasses and other forms of advanced A.R. technology," he explained and said that they were only getting started with "Pokemon Go," which left fans thrilled in knowing what Niantic has in store for them.
A location-based augmented reality game for Android and iOS, "Pokemon Go" uses GPS (Global Positioning System) in a mobile device to catch, battle and train virtual creatures, the Pokemon.
