Nintendo works for Android Games in Pokemon Go

The two companies announced on Tuesday that Nintendo and the US company would team in behind the smash hit "Pokemon Go."

In their first collaboration, to be launched later in this year, Nintendo's lovely half-vegetable, half-animal Pikmin characters will start.

"We're excited to work in tandem with AR without explaining what other characters from Nintendo might be working on for the AR games," Nintendo CEO said.

The success of Niantic's Pokémon Go was critical, enabling users all over the world to see characters from Pokémon in their own communities.

Nintendo has a history of hesitation and unlike others in the industry, it has been slow to take up the expanding, popular world of smartphone play with its characters outside the traditional consoles. This changed as some of their mobile games, like Super Mario Run in 2016 and Mario Kart Tour in 2019, were released.

Pokemon Go has been a huge success since its 2016 launch, according to Tracker Sensor Tower, and has earned over $1 trillion alone over the first ten months of 2020.
