Niantic announces partnership with Nintendo on new Augmented Reality ‘Pikmin’ title

Nearly five years after the launch of the legendary game – Pokémon Go, Niantic announced Monday that they are partnering with Nintendo to co-develop a new title based on the company’s Pikmin franchise.

According to Niantic, the app is being developed in their Tokyo office and will be launched later this year.

A press release from Niantic reads, “The app will include gameplay activities to encourage walking and make walking more delightful.” The company also specified that the title will make use of their augmented reality platform to integrate the real world into the app’s experiences. 

Pokémon Go might have fallen off from the headlines but it has delivered massive sums to the San Francisco gaming company, eclipsing $1 billion in revenue in 2020. In the past years, Nintendo has tried leave their mark on mobile gaming platforms with a number of titles playing on some of their biggest franchises, but none of them have reached Pokémon Go’s level of success.

Niantic has raised nearly $500 million in capital, most recently raising at a $4 billion valuation.
