Nintendo’s Japanese press release noted that the Pikmin AR game will be “the first stage” in their partnership with Niantic, focused on using Nintendo characters to “make walking more fun.”

Niantic also released a statement on its own website announcing the partnership. The announcement said that the game will “include gameplay activities to encourage walking and make walking more delightful,” much like Pokemon GO. Additionally, it will be the first ever app developed by Niantic’s Tokyo Studio, which was established back in 2018.

This will be yet another one of Niantic’s AR mobile games. It started out with Ingress in 2012. Then, it followed that up with games connected to other IPs, like Pokemon GO. Another upcoming project will be inspired by the board game Catan.

Details about the Pikmin AR game will be shared in the next few months. In the meantime, you can sign up for preregistration and updates on Niantic’s website.
