Top 30 Gaming Innovations in August

From Superhero VR Experiences to AR World-Building Games

— August 18, 2019 — Tech
The top August 2019 gaming ideas offer a look at innovations across mobile-first games, on-the-go consoles, eSports, augmented reality and even lifestyle products to help players perform optimally.

While Nintendo Switch is the go-to system of choice for many gamers on the go, the brand recently launched the Nintendo Switch Lite as an even more compact model. Knowing that many people enjoy playing games while they're out, Minecraft created an entire augmented reality universe called Minecraft Earth that lets players build atop real-world structures in their own neighborhood and engage with friends for mini-adventures.

To support gamers who want to perform at their very best, a variety of eSports beverages and drink mixes are now emerging, including the G Fuel Energy Formula, which has been dubbed "The Official Energy Drink of eSports."
