Nintendo reveals Pokemon GO to be available next month

Over at Nintendo‘s Treehouse Live event at E3, the company introduced the Pokemon GO Plus device and revealed the rollout of the awaited game.

Let’s first talk about the introduced gadget — the Pokemon GO Plus. It is basically a Bluetooth wearable that pairs to your smart device wirelessly. Its main purpose is to notify you when a Pokemon is nearby (through vibrating and flashing a green light) so you wouldn’t have to keep on checking your smartphone.


Using it, players trainers  can also throw Pokeballs to catch wild Pokemons. The Pokemon GO Plus lights a rainbow color if you’ve successfully caught a Pokemon, and red when you’ve failed to do so.

Nintendo is looking to release this wireless device by July for $35 and, later on, confirmed that users would be able to load the game before the wearable comes out — revealing that the game will be available in a few weeks.

The company adds that the initial set of creatures are the ones available in Pokemon Blue and Red versions.

This game is hotly-anticipated due to the success of the earlier releases so we’re anxious to test it out and see if it lives up to its hype.
