Pokemon Go Arrives in July With $35 Optional Accessory
The newest Pokemon game is just weeks away.
The new augmented-reality Pokemon game from Niantic Labs is due out in July, Nintendo said. Pokemon Go has been available in beta around the world for some time, and a beta test began recently in the US.
The free-to-play game's release will be accompanied by the release of a physical accessory you can purchase. Pokemon Go Plus is a clip-on attachment that you can choose to wear as a wristband. It allows you to play without looking at your phone by pressing a button on it to capture a nearby Pokemon when it vibrates, but that privilege will cost you $35.
