Nintendo confirmed during its E3 2016 press event that the Pokémon Go augmented reality game is finally going to be released for Android and iOS in July. This game was announced by The Pokémon Company in September last year, it has teamed up with developer Niantic to create this augmented reality game that will enable players to go out and capture Pokémon, which as you might be aware is the ultimate fantasy of most Pokémon fans.


Pokémon Go has been put through a trial phase with select players in Japan and the United States over the past few months. The wait ends for everybody else in July when the game is officially going to be released for Android and iOS devices.

Nintendo also mentioned that features are being developed that will enable players to trade Pokémon, but those features won’t be available at launch. It was also said that eventually this mobile game and the upcoming Pokémon Sun and Moon title for Nintendo 3DS will see some form of integration.


The company also announced a Bluetooth wristband called Pokémon Go Plus which will light up, vibrate, and enable players to perform in-game actions like catching Pokémon. The wristband will be available soon after the game is launched next month for $34.99.
