Nintendo unveiled a number of new games, apps and updates to fan-favorites.
For those who miss playing Pokémon GO — the augmented-reality game that allows you to catch Pokémon in the real world – you can now play from the comfort of your home.
Company CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara said, “Recently, we have made several changes to how trainers can play ‘Pokémon GO’ even from inside their homes.”
For example, trainers can now join nearby Raid Battles remotely, and the number of gifts you can open daily has been increased to 30. Mega-Evolved Pokémon is also coming to Pokémon GO.
Nintendo also released the “Isle of Armor” expansion pack for Switch games Pokémon Sword and Shield.
A new phone app called Pokémon Smile hopes to make brushing teeth fun for younger children. By using the phone’s camera, children can “defeat cavity-causing bacteria depicted in the game” by brushing their teeth and catching Pokémon.
