Pokémon Enter the Real World in New Game, 'Pokémon Go'

Gather round, Pokémon purists—have we got a story for you! Today the Pokémon Company announced a new mobile game called Pokémon Go that brings your favorite pocket monsters to the real world. That's right, Pikachu and friends are coming to Earth.

The game is so different from the Game Boy creatures of your youth: Pokémon has gone virtual, so you can battle, trade and catch these little guys wherever you are on this planet. Pretty cool, right? But also...confusing?

Watch the trailer above to get a real grasp on the thing. The Verge reports that a smartwatch is also being developed to partner with the game. Things are getting very, very real.

Next, why not exercise that nostalgic '90s brain by taking our Sailor Moon quiz: Which Sailor Scout Are You? and/or scoping out the intro to the new Dragon Ball series, Dragon Ball Super?
