Niantic Labs, the developer of Pokemon GO, is expanding its reach in the realm of augmented reality (AR) games. NBA All-World was announced on June 28, a new AR game being developed by Niantic focused on fans of basketball.
Hoping to appeal to casual and hardcore fans alike, NBA All-World has a similar goal to many of the AR games Niantic releases: to get players into the real world and interact with the things and people around them.
NBA All-World is expected to be similar to Pokemon GO, including PVP battling and location control, and the inclusion of mini-games, but exact details are not available.
As stated in the FAQ section of the NBA All-World website, the game will soon be entering beta testing in limited markets. No official release date has been announced for NBA All-World, but registering your email will let you receive updates on when NBA All-World may be released in your region.
Hopeful players can also pre-register for NBA All-World on the website.
