'Pokémon Go' Gets New Device, July Release


E3 has been chock full of announcements. We're getting Resident Evil 7, a rebooted Bandicoot franchise, and now, we've got more details on Pokémon Go, a game where you can catch Pokémon in real life.

During the conference, Nintendo revealed that the game will come with a brand-new device that serves as a radar for the virtual Pokémon, according to IGN. When you're walking down the street and the LED light on the device blinks green, you can press a button to try to capture the creature. It'll blink different colors to show if you were successful in your catch. The device, which aims to cut down on screen time with your smartphone, is expected to be $35.

We should have access to the device by July and access to the app a little bit sooner, Nintendo has revealed. So, that means next month! Are you ready?
