Nintendo is repeating the success story of its Super Mario Bros. with Pokemon GO. The company could launch Pokemon trading and AR updates soon. Within just one week of its release, the game has become one of the best mobile games. Actually, the best in terms of downloads and popularity. That?s just the beginning as it seems the company has even bigger plans for the future.
Owner of The Pok?mon Company, Nintendo has failed to produce an effective result with its hardwares. On the other hand, Pokemon GO has made an outstanding impact in the world of gaming. Reports claim that publishers, Niantic Labs is gearing up to launch trading is the game. That has always been a main feature of the Pokemon series.
Gamers were surprised when the company did not release the game for Nintendo DS. The company is focusing on the wider range of platforms. In this case, smartphones are the best option. The trading on handheld consoles is limited. With smartphones, the players will be able to trade their Pokemons and other items with any other player. The reports indicate that the company will soon introduce trading to Pokemon GO.
According to Business Insider, Niantic CEO John Hanke mentioned trading as a ?core element? of Pokemon. He didn?t provide any details about the process, such as how it will work with the current technology. He also hinted that “Pokemon Go” could be coming to dedicated Augmented Reality (AR) devices including Microsoft?s HoloLens and the new version of Google Glass.
On the topic of augmented reality, Hanke said, “That may be a fun thing to take advantage of.”
Moreover, developers are also planning to update the functioning of Pokemon Gyms and PokeStops. According to Hanke, these are currently in ?very most basic versions?. The updates will let the users ?customize their functions in other ways?. However, he provided no further details about the release date of these upcoming updates.
