Pokemon GO panel to be held at GDC 2016

Catch 'Em All: Pokemon GO and Real World Gaming

John Hanke | CEO, Niantic, Inc

Over the last three years, Niantic, Inc. has been defining the genre of Real World gaming, using smartphones and tablets to connect the digital world to the physical world. Niantic's newest game, Pokemon GO, ups the challenge of real world gaming design, taking a beloved franchise and setting its hundreds of brightly-colored monsters loose across the globe, adding a new Bluetooth wearable device created by Nintendo to the mix. Join Niantic founder and CEO John Hanke as he discusses how the company has developed a unique vision for delivering a mobile Pokemon experience that gets would-be trainers into the outdoors.


Attendees will get a first-hand, in-depth look at how players are interacting and exploring the world with one another through Pokemon GO, the collaborative approach to design and development for the game and the next evolution of augmented reality and real-world mobile gameplay experiences.

The commercials have me hyped. I think this game has potential to be huge.

Oh Man oh jeez, I think this game has the potential to be the second coming of Pokemon. It's such a cool idea, and Niantec did such a good job on their other game like this.
