Pokemon UNITE fans are counting the days until mobile players join the party, and it turns out they won’t really be waiting for long. The release date of the mobile versions of Pokemon UNITE has been revealed, so here’s when it comes out.

Pokemon UNITE is the latest spin-off in the ever growing franchise, inspired by other games in the MOBA genre like League of Legends. Players can choose from a variety of Pokemon and duke it out in different arenas, and given its free-to-start model, anyone can jump in and have a good time.

While it’s planned to see release on the Nintendo Switch and mobile devices, the Switch is currently the only way to play UNITE while the mobile ports will have a release date announced in the future.

Players who have been anticipating mobile release can now mark their calendars for Sept. 22, as confirmed via a tweet on the official Pokemon UNITE Twitter. After about two months of missing out, mobile players can now join the fun with Switch players in cross-platform play. 

There’s currently an ongoing campaign regarding mobile pre-registrations, and over five million people have signed up as of Sept. 1. Players who pre-register for the mobile release will be entitled to 1,000 Aeos Tickets, a Pikachu Unite License, and a special Festive Pikachu holowear outfit. Should the campaign reach 7.5 million pre-registrants, an additional 1,000 Aeos tickets will be rewarded to players who signed up.

Pokemon UNITE will release on Android and iOS on Sept. 22. Players may now pre-register on their respective app stores.
