Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) seems to be well packaged in terms of its surprises. The tech giant cannot wait for the varnishing of the latest news about the iPhone 7. It has revealed its next move; that of the Mario game which is soon finding its way into mobile devices and specifically the iPhone. Pokémon Go is coming to the Apple Watch thanks for the efforts between Apple and Niantic Labs who have both agreed to give the online gamers a different feel of online gaming.
It is only earlier this year when Pokémon Go exploded into the mainstream, but it has so far become one of the biggest phenomena of the year. It has captured the hearts and minds of many fans around the world. The Virtual Reality game has been growing in competition with Twitter given that it has attracted thousands of millions of active users on Android.
The marriage between Apple and Nintendo
The Smartwatch from Apple has been a phenomenon and so is Pokemon Go from Nintendo. Hence, this makes the two of them. The entry of Pokemon Go onto Apple Watch will allow the hatching of eggs and gathering of items without the need of using a phone. The wrist watch will be enough to do so.
All the information of navigation including what the player ought to do to get to the next level will be on the main screen of the Apple Watch. It will also be possible to see which Pokemon are nearby and how far one need to walk. The more the walk, the more one gets to interact with different and more types of Pokémon. Traveling in the real world is of the essence if one is to catch any Pokemon.
Is there anything more to expect?
Perhaps yes given that Nintendo and Niantic are already racing to give the game another life. Moreover, it has become such a cultural hit, and it no longer feels like it was introduced just months ago. Its popularity has grown from 151 creatures of its first generation to more than 720.
Many people are sharing a ‘dream come true’ feeling of a renewed gaming experience given the stimulation from technology.
