Many games are now adopting the exciting and interactive interface of augmented reality (AR) gaming. The best-known AR software developer, Niantic, is partnering up with Hasbro and TOMY to develop the massive "Transformers: Heavy Metal" AR game. Reports are also coming in that Niantic is collaborating with Nintendo to create the "Pikmin Go" AR game later this year.
'Transformers: Heavy Metal' AR Game
Details for the incoming "Transformers: Heavy Metal" AR mobile game are very limited. In a Niantic blog post, Executive Producer Phil Hong teased about a "Transformers game unlike any other, an AR game where you'll get to team up with the likes of Bumblebee and the Autobots in the real world,"
The game is still in development in the Seattle-based Very Very Spaceship. A global launch for the title is planned to happen later this year. The game should be playable for both iOS and Android devices. It is important to note that it might use an online multiplayer system, similar to the one used in "Pokemon Go."
