Game news Niantic (Pokémon Go) wants to revive the Tamagotchi craze on mobiles with Peridot, its new game

It’s been almost ten years since Niantic made augmented reality one of its greatest specialties. A level of skills that has allowed the studios to work on one of the most popular mobile games of recent years: Pokémon Go. Far from being satisfied with a single project, Niantic is developing its catalog of games and, after Harry Potter and Pikmin Bloom, the studio returns with an original license, called Peridot.

New pocket creatures, Pikachu and his gang set aside

For those who grew up in the 1990s, the word “Tamagotchi” must awaken a flood of memories that are quick to make you nostalgic for a few minutes. If this generation could have thought that nothing like this could have seen the light of day, it was very badly knowing the ambitions of Niantic on the subject. The augmented reality specialist has certainly built its reputation with Pokémon Go, but despite some pitfalls such as the upcoming closure of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, the studio wanted to bounce back with many projects like Pikmin Bloom and, more recently, Peridot.

It is this new project that holds our attention today since it marks a new turning point for Niantic which is no longer content to adapt new, well-known licenses, but which returns to the front of the stage with an original franchise like was Ingressthe first game from the studio, in its time. Galvanized by their work on the famous pocket creatures, the Niantic teams have concocted a new experience that will ask you to take care of a slew of cute little critters, from your phone and wherever you want!

The perfect mix between Tamagotchi and Pokémon Go?

In time, mobile gamers will no longer cohabit just with their pets, but with the Peridot. After spending thousands of years in a deep slumber, this magical species has awakened in the middle of the real world to find refuge in our smartphones. Behind this tribute and this evolution of the Tamagotchi concept, we find a game much more complete than a simple augmented reality application where you have to take care of the creatures by entertaining them, feeding them and training them.

The game is based in particular on the same bases as Pokemon Go encouraging you to roam your environment and interact with the real world, but it doesn’t stop there. In the title, full of unique creatures, it will be possible to cross each species to bring out new ones that have their own characteristics and their own DNA ! Better still, Peridot is aimed at all player profiles: the teams have made it a point of honor to reward both regular and more occasional players. For example, no matter how often you play, your Peridot will never die, unlike its Tamagotchi ancestor on which you had to watch the grain.

For the moment, no release date has been announced. but Niantic plans to launch the game in “select markets” as early as this month, expanding further and further into the regions that can benefit from the title’s soft launch.
