Marvel and Pokemon Go maker, Niantic announce collaboration game. Today at D23 Expo, it was shown in a reveal trailer that Marvel and Niantic will be working on a game together.
A new mobile app leverages Niantic’s augmented reality technology.
Gameplay will involve players creating their own superhero identity and patrolling their neighborhood to foil crimes and complete missions.
Eventually, players can team up with heroes like Spider-Man, Wolverine, Captain America, and other heroes to stop supervillains.
Niantic is best known for their development of Pokemon Go, an immensely popular mobile app that combines real-world locations with the catching and battling of Pokemon. Niantic has since teamed up for collaborations with various brands and companies on similar mobile apps.
Although Pokemon Go has been a wild success and remains one of the top-grossing mobile apps to this day, Niantic hasn’t imitated its success with other apps. It’s biggest post-Pokemon Go game Harry Potter: Wizards Unite shut down in early January after less than three years.
The game is scheduled to release in 2023.
