Niantic Announces a Virtual Pet Mobile Game Called Peridot

Niantic, the creators of popular AR mobile games Pokemon GO, Pikmin Bloom, and more have announced their next project. Peridot is a virtual pet mobile game that lets you care for, raise, and breed one-of-a-kind creatures.

Here’s what we know so far about the game:

After thousands of years of slumber, Peridots (or Dots for short) are waking to a world vastly different from the one in which they used to roam, and they’ll need our help to protect them from extinction.

You’ll foster your own Peridots as you embark on this experience. These are creatures who feel so real, you’ll love every moment raising them from birth to adulthood. While you explore the world together, you’ll get to learn more about your cute new friends, develop a bond as you nurture and play with them, and work with other players to diversify their species.

You can see some examples of how Peridot will look on mobile devices below. The screens show activities like going on daily walks, uncovering hidden treasures around the world, and playing with your unique Peridot pal.

If it’s anything like Pokemon GO and Pikmin Bloom, we know that the game will utilize AR (alternate reality) features to place the creatures in real-world settings and use walking in real life as the main mechanic.

So far, we know that Peridot will be entering a soft launch testing phase in select markets pretty soon. You can sign up to be notified when the game is available in your area by visiting the game’s official website right here.

You can watch the official announcement trailer for Peridot below. Let us know what you think and if you are excited to raise your very own Peridot pet.
