Happy 6th Birthday, Pokémon GO!

Today is a special day! It is the 6th anniversary of Pokémon GO.
Since 2016, you have been out there exploring with us and we could not have done this without you.

Thank You For Helping Plant 301,000 Trees

Thanks to all of you, we managed to plant 301,000 trees across 3 continents and 14 countries! You came out to our Community Days and showed the world that you can explore while elevating sustainability. 🌳

The Future of AR

The range of possibilities within the future of AR lies on a never-ending longitudinal scale. It is our job to explore that line – together. #Niantic #RealWorldMetaverse

MARVEL World of Heroes | Announcement Teaser

MARVEL World of Heroes is Niantic‘s latest AR mobile game that brings the iconic Marvel Universe into the real world. Pre-register at now.

In MARVEL World of Heroes, players can create their own unique Super Hero identity and origin story. Players will need to patrol their neighborhoods to foil crimes, complete Super Hero missions, and thwart interdimensional threats. As players level up, they will unlock equipment and abilities, and will team up with Marvel Super Heroes such as Spider-Man, Wolverine, Captain America and others to battle iconic Super Villains and save the Multiverse from cosmic and earthbound threats.

MARVEL World of Heroes is scheduled to launch globally in 2023.
