Their smartphones’ GPS system will keep track of the presence of nearby Pokemon that they can capture. To get into PokeStops to score some items, players must walk around the city as these real world locations are mostly local landmarks.

E3 2016 Latest Update: Pokemon GO Plus Releases July, Possibly Pokemon GO Too

It seems we only have to wait several weeks until Pokemon GO launches in the market.

During the session, Miyamoto had shared additional details on the upcoming augmented-reality game Pokemon GO, and sort of teased the game’s release.

Miyamoto announced that the optional Pokemon GO Plus device will release by the end of July and will cost $34.99. He even showed how the wearable device works. The Pokemon GO Plus has a Bluetooth feature that allows players to search and catch Pokemon even when they are not carrying their phones.

Comicbook wrote that the device will “keep players moving” and will let them enjoy their Pokemon GO adventures without keeping their eyes on their smartphones. The device is strapped on the player’s wrist and will flash green and vibrate when a Pokemon is nearby. Pokemon GO Plus will either show a rainbow light if the Pokemon is captured or a red one if it escaped.

The Pokemon Company’s Tsunekazu Ishihara’s words further teased the probability of a July release when he commented through a translator:

"Mr. Miyamoto, I think you just announced the release date of the Go Plus device ... and, obviously that means we've gotta have the application out there ahead of time," said Ishihara. "So, we're going to have to work hard to get it ready for everyone."

This news would surely please the Pokemon fans that have been waiting for the final version to hit the market.
