Is Niantic making any improvements to the AR for Pokemon GO? Can we see what they’re doing?
Pokemon GO was revolutionary in many ways, including showing AR constructs of Pokemon in the real world, which people couldn’t help but take pictures with. But with the two year anniversary of the game coming, Niantic wanted to show just how much their technology has advanced. So they released a trailer only showing new depths of their AR, including showing Pikachu and Eevee going around a real area and avoiding real-life objects.
It’s not clear whether this will be updated into Pokemon GO, but it’s very possible. it’s also possible that they’re improving it so that the game will be able to make up more with the Nintendo Switch title Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee when it arrives on Nintendo Switch later this year. The game is meant to be a mix of traditional stylings and GO, so being more advanced could help with that.
