Now Playing: Pokemon GO - Explore Your Town and Catch Pokemon!

During its Treehouse Live stream from E3, Nintendo revealed new details about Pokemon Go including a more specific release window than it offered previously.

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.
