Pokemon Go

 ·  Published by  ·  Leave a comment

Nintendo is cooperating with Niantic Labs (the Google backed start-up team behind Ingress) to create an augmented-reality massively-multiplayer online role-playing location-based game called Pokemon Go. The gameplay shows that people have to travel to different locations in the real world in order to collect, battle or find collaborative fighting events.

If location-specific content will be included and the game reaches critical mass it can have big implications for travel industry. For example people would have to travel to collect destination-specific Pokemons or be part of multiplayer boss battles.
