Pokemon Go Plus Accessory's New Release Date Announced @ 10:24 pm
On Sep 08, 2016
The Pokemon Go Plus accessory will now launch on September 16, Nintendo has confirmed on Twitter.
According to a blog post from Niantic, Pokemon Go Plus will launch on September 16 in “most countries,” save for a few South American territories, where it will launch "later in the year."
As described by Niantic, the Pokemon Go Plus is a companion device that connects via Bluetooth and allows you to “keep your phone in your pocket and go about your day-to-day activities while still being able to collect valuable resources and capture even the most elusive Pokemon.”
Specifically, Niantic says the accessory will vibrate and light up when you pass a PokeStop, and can be clicked to collect new items. It will also alert you when a Pokemon is nearby and allow you to catch it with the click of a button.
Interestingly, the new release date for Pokemon Go Plus follows today’s news that Pokemon Go is headed to the Apple Watch, where it will feature similar companion functionality so you don’t have to constantly stare into your phone (and potentially fall off of a pier).
Pokemon Go Plus was originally due out in July, but was later delayed so Niantic could “offer new experiences to play Pokemon Go with Pokemon Go Plus with a quality level high enough to satisfy as many people as possible.”
