Pokemon Go is now back on top in the U.S. top grossing charts on iOS. It looks as though the “fad” is back and I cannot wait to see what Pokemon GO will bring to us in the future. With the promise of trading, more gyms/Pokecenters, it looks like Pokemon GO will have a bright future ahead of it. I still log into my game from time to time but I think I may try and focus back up and level my character. With Niantic providing regular updates it seems to have kept users interested in the application and has once again captured players money and attention…
Earlier today, during the Apple event, it was announced that Mario is headed to an iOS device near you, before the end of this year. The new Mario game you can play with one hand will release sometime in December of 2016 for iPhone and iPad. Check out the first gameplay trailer that was released and let us know if you plan on downloading this game when it’s released. After the announcement, Nintendo’s stock jumped big time and we can’t wait to hear more.
Check out the gameplay trailer for Super Mario Run above.
During today’s APPLE event (yes you read correctly), Nintendo joined the stage and announced Super Mario Run for iOS. The game looks like New Super Mario Bros for Wii U and features simple, one touch controls. I was legit SHOCKED that Nintendo was a big part of Apples conference and was very interesting to say the least!
The game will be available on iOS before the end of the year.
Earlier this summer we got an interesting piece of news from the Marvel entertainment empire. It was revealed that they were looking to step up their efforts in console game development, having done quite well in online and mobile spaces. We know that a Spider-Man game is on the way, and according to an interview with VP of games Jay Ong, “it’s the beginning of great things to come.” That quote was specifically in response to a question about whether the Triple-A approach to the Spider-Man game was an indication of what Marvel might look to do moving forward.
So, we know that a serious Spider-Man game will be coming out in the near future, and that games of a similar quality will follow. But what we don’t know is what those follow-ups will look like, or more importantly which subjects and characters they’ll concern. It appears as if the Spider-Man game will not be tied specifically to the upcoming film Spider-Man: Homecoming, so to expect a line of games roughly equivalent to the Marvel Cinematic Universe calendar would probably be misguided. Given that, Marvel could take this new initiative in pretty much any direction it wants.
But here are a few ideas that seem perfect for Marvel console games.
The official Guinness World Records site has reported that Pokemon GO has broken 5 records. They are “Most revenue grossed by a mobile game in its first month”, “Most downloaded mobile game in its first month”, “Most international charts topped simultaneously for a mobile game in its first month (downloads)”, “Most international charts topped simultaneously for a mobile game in its first month (revenue)” and “Fastest time to gross $100 million by a mobile game”. The site says the records were confirmed after “consulting the kings of digital data SuperData”.
The game is also said to be on track to earn over 1 BILLION (yes, with a “B”) by the end of 2016.
The immensely popular Pokemon GO game is now available in Brazil. The game has been a long time coming to the country, so it will be sweet to see Pokemon GO head straight to #1 there as well. I have been having a decent time with the game although I need to get “back into it” as I have took a break from hunting down Pokemon (I needed to load up on Pokeballs and I refuse to pay just yet)..
In other Pokemon Go news, the game has apparently made over 160 MILLION in revenue. Players could buy in game items with real money and apparently everyone is doing so.
The Pokemon Go Plus accessory, a separate device that enhances the gaming experience for Pokemon Go, has been delayed until September. The device is another way for Nintendo to profit from the game’s runaway success and no reason was given for the delay of the accessory. The Pokemon Go Plus accessory will no doubt send the gaming public into a swirl and I am certain this thing is going to sell like hotcakes when it’s finally released.
Here is a VLOG showcasing the fam and I hunting for Pokemon in Pokemon GO! We had an awesome time in downtown Buffalo and look forward to more adventures. If you like this video and want to see more like it, let me know! It was extremely fun haunting down Pokemon in Pokemon GO and we can’t wait to see what other Pokemon we find. The game has become a worldwide phenomenon so let us know if you have given the title a try.
Enjoy everyone and be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel.
The team leaders for the popular Pokemon GO game have been revealed. The announcement was made during the San Diego Comic-Con 2016. Niantic CEO John Hanke revealed the different Team Leaders for Pokemon GO are as follows:
– Team Valor: Candela
– Team Mystic: Blanche
– Team Instinct: Spark
I have been enjoying Pokemon GO immensely and I can understand all the hype. The game has literally become a worldwide phenomenon and it’s actually been pretty neat talking to random strangers about the game.
A new update for the insanely popular Pokémon GO app is now available of download. This update will apparently bring the app up to version 1.0.3 and follows on from last week’s update to version 1.0.2 which resolved Pokemon Trainer Club log in problems.
This update only lists to bring “minor text fixes” in the patch notes, and is 153 MB to download. Download away and let us know what team you are.
