on September 10, 2015 2:35 AM

During a press conference this morning, The Pokémon Company announced Pokémon Go, a new game for iOS and Android coming in 2016.

The new game is developed by Niantic in collaboration with Nintendo and The Pokemon Company, and the support of Game Freak.

Basically, the free app does what it says on the tin, using real world location data to let you capture Pokémon while walking around on the street.

It even comes with a companion device named worn on your wrist, that will interact with the game and alert you when there’s a Pokémon nearby.

You can check out the announcement trailer below.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
