Don’t Miss Niantic at MAG Erfurt!
We’re excited to share that Niantic is an official partner of MAG, a weekend-long anime and animation convention in Erfurt, Germany from Friday, October 5 to Sunday, October 7. MAG is the perfect place to meet Niantic–our booth can be found in Hall 1! Come over and talk with us about our games, and meet Twitch streamers, YouTubers or fellow anime fans.
We also have a few special events planned that go well beyond the Niantic booth. For our Ingress Agents, there will be exclusive demonstration of Ingress Prime, and a special three-day Mission Day experience that includes exclusive badges. Meanwhile, Pokémon GO Trainers will have a special opportunity to trade Pokémon with German YouTube personalities Sturmwaffel and the Pietsmiet Collective.
Plus, we’ll have special swag on hand, and plenty of surprises for attendees!
