The Pokémon Company announced today the arrival of Pokémon GO, an upcoming Android and iOS app that will let you catch all Pokémon in the real world, via augmented reality.

The main games of the Pokémon franchise has seen its success mainly with Nintendo devices, but the newest app could take fans various places.

Niantic, a former Google start-up company that developed the Ingress augmented reality game, is working with The Pokémon Company and Nintendo, to make this app a reality. The purpose: to go outside and explore to capture lots of Pokémon.

Another device, called the Pokémon GO Plus, was shown, allowing users to simulate basic functions such as throwing a Poké Ball. It can be paired with an Android or iOS device, and comes with a rumble-and-flash feature.

According to Kotaku, Pokémon designer Junichi Masuda said: “The day has finally come when Pokémon appear in the real world.” He added, “I’m thinking about how this game will connect with titles in the main series of Pokémon games.”

Pokémon GO will be coming to Android and iOS sometime in 2016.
