Nintendo is working with developers to create the Pokemon Go app, which is an interactive mobile game. It allows users to play, battle and capture Pokemon creatures using augmented technology. This unique app combines real-time and real locations with virtual aspects.

By using real locations, the brand aims to encourage users to explore their city while partaking in virtual reality games. Additionally, a wearable device called Pokémon Go Plus will be released as a compatible game accessory. This will allow users to always stay connected with notifications about things such as new locations and particular events.

While the popularity of this anime brand was highly popular throughout the 90s, this app is pushing the brand back into mainstream market. The newly unveiled app will be compatible with both iOS and Android systems. It set to release in 2016 but no official date for its launch has been set.
