Real world you just got bitch slapped by one of Bulbasaurs vines because holy shit Pokemon is back to take over the world.
Well not that Pokemon ever really left, or really gave back the world, it still dominates the handheld market as well as the playing card market, as noted by my seven year old son and ten year old nephew who play the card game all the time.
But now the Pokemon are here to take over our mobile phones with Pokemon Go. No hard release date was given in the pretty epic trailer that makes me want to say “fuck flappy birds” because this will be the go to mobile experience.
Paired with a mini pokeball that connects to your phone via bluetooth you track down wild Pokemon, catch’em, trade’em, and even battle with them. Also it appears there will be group events where you and a team can battle other teams and also a large group event where everyone battles Mew-Two.
This is going to be Nintendo’s first foray into mobile gaming and it looks like they are bringing out the big guns for it. It will be out sometime in 2016 for Android and Apple Devices.
