This “Pikmin” game is meant to make walking fun for players
Nintendo is teaming up with Niantic to launch an AR mobile game based on “Pikmin”. The title should be available later this year.
Augmented reality technology allows images and animations to be superimposed on the real-world view of a smartphone’s camera. This technology was the key to the success of “Pokémon GO” a couple of years ago.
Following the success of the franchise, Niantic has decided to venture in the adorable world of “Pikmin”. According to Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of the license, this AR mobile game is designed to encourage players to walk.
“Pokémon GO” has been one of the biggest successes of 2016. Hopefully, this new game will garner the same interest.
