Peridot, Niantic's upcoming AR pet game, is launching worldwide on May 9th
Niantic has dropped the official release date for Peridot, the studio's "real-world adventure pet game" on mobile. Landing on iOS and Android devices on May 9th, the game is now open for pre-registration to give players first dibs as soon as it's out. Eager fans who sign up will score a launch-exclusive party hat cosmetic when they play the game within the first two weeks of the global release.
In Peridot, players can look forward to collecting and nurturing a variety of magical creatures that take mobile interaction to a whole new level. These adorable pets can not only explore the environment around them, but they can also develop their own unique personalities (and even get bored!) on top of their basic needs.
The developers have also made sure that each Peridot is "100% genetically unique". There's a wide diversity of genes that each Peridot can be born from, altering their appearances from their colours to their different Archetypes. Of course, players can also cross-Hatch with other Keepers to create one-of-a-kind combinations.
If you're curious to know more about the game while waiting for the official launch, you can head on over to the iOS App Store and the Google Play Store for Android devices and pre-register for Peridot. It's a free-to-play game with in-app purchases. You can also visit the official website for more info, join the community of followers on the official Twitter page to stay updated on all the latest developments, or take a little sneak peek at the embedded clip above to get a feel of the game's vibes.
